If you have a spare $6 million sitting around Bugatti has the car for you, but it may not be as fast as the $3 million Chiron.

Bugatti announced the Divo at The Quail classic car show in Carmel, California.

The Divo, according to CNN Money, has a 1,500 horsepower engine but goes slower than its predecessor. That is if you think 236 MPH is slow. The Chiron will go at a top speed of 261 MPH.

It is also 77 pounds lighter than the 4,400-pound Chiron.

Designers were given a mission, to build "an agile, nimble, handling-oriented car, a design which is completely different, but unmistakably, a Bugatti," Road and Track reported.

The company says the Divo is better for tracks and twisting roads thanks to the car's suspension and aerodynamic design, CNN Money reported.

The Divo will be a rare specimen of a car, with only 40 new models being made and all have already been sold, Road and Track reported.

Bugatti will also still make the Chiron, being the first time that the company will have two models available at one time.

The name, Divo, came from a former Bugatti racing driver, Albert Divo who won the Targa Florio race twice in the 1920s, CNN Money reported.
