Divo is set for sale after detailing, testing and validation process of each car last month. Bugatti has started shipping the first units of the Divo.
At €5 million ($5.9 million) a pop, excluding taxes and options, this is one seriously expensive hypercar, though “a must-have for any Bugatti collection”, which is only limited to 40 unit. Bugatti has already sold all 40 examples.
The Divo marks a milestone in Bugatti’s history, spanning over 110 years. The Divo will now enter our history books, alongside the cutting-edge Veyron and Chiron hyper sports cars. It starts a new era at Bugatti – the era of modern coachbuilding.
Winkelmann called the Divo “a visually and technically independent model.”You just have to look at the Divo to see that. The profile is slimmer, making it look “flatter and more sporty” than the Chiron. At the front, intakes on the hood reduce the vehicle’s surface area and improve airflow while a new spoiler generates more downforce. It also helps direct more air into the front intakes while also helping to cool the brakes.
The rear is branded with a unique 3D taillight design that features 44 light-up fins that comprise the taillights. It’s a stunning complement to the narrow LED headlights up at the front. A fin extending from the intake helps channel air over the wide wing, which sits above a raised diffuser and 3D-printed exhaust tips.
Divo uses the W16 engine of the Chiron, with 8.0-liters in displacement and four turbocharges that give it a staggering torque curb, with 1,180 lb-ft (1,600 Nm) developed at 2,000-6,000 rpm, and 1,479 HP (1,500 PS / 1,103 kW) produced at 6,700 rpm. The Divo takes 2.4 seconds to sprint to 62 mph (100 km/h) and its top speed has been limited to 236 mph (380 km/h). It also returns 6.7/15.5/10.5 mpg (35.2/15.2/22.5 lt/100 km) in city/highway/combined on the WLTP cycle, although we doubt that any of its owners will ever be bothered with such trivial stuff.
