Travis Pastrana, Corvette Zora, Bugatti Divo: Car News Headlines
Travis Pastrana is getting twitchy being at home. The father, husband, racer, and perhaps the world’s nicest daredevil is at his best when he can go where others don’t. Being cooped up at home is scary for him. Pastrana is keeping busy with sim racing.
The mid-engine C8 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is the floor, not the ceiling. Yet to come are Z06, Grand Sport, ZR1, and range-topping Zora models. Engines will range from a twin-turbo, flat-crank 5.5-liter V-8 to the base car’s 6.2-liter V-8 paired with an electric motor to a hybridized version of the twin-turbo, flat-crank V-8. The Corvette is looking to take on hypercars.
The first of the 40 customers who plunked down $5.8 million for the Bugatti Divo are finally taking delivery of their hypercars. The Divo’s development has been completed and cars are going out despite the virus. Deliveries will push into next year or beyond. The entire 40-unit production run was sold out before the car was revealed.
