Bugatti Divo launched at €5 million. Only 40 to be produced; and sold out

French carmaker Bugatti has unveiled the Divo hypercar at the Monterey Car Week in California. Only 40 cars bearing the Divo name will be built and every car (based on the Chiron) costing €5 million has been spoken for.

The engine output is the same as the Chiron with the 8.0-litre quad-turbo W16 engine producing 1,479bhp and 1,600Nm of torque. However, despite the drop in weight, the top speed of the Divo is lower compared to the Chiron at just 380km/h due to its increased camber, downforce and the larger wing at the rear.

Inside, the Divo gets a dashboard finished in matte carbon, while the new seats which offer more lateral support are covered in Grey Alcantara.

The Divo takes its name from the legendary racing driver Albert Divo, who won the Targa Florio race twice in a Bugatti.

Bugatti teases the world with its latest hypercar - the €5 million Divo

Bugatti teases its audience with the first glimpse of its Chiron-based Divo hypercar ahead of its launch on August 24. Following the brand's confirmation that a track-focused named Divo is on the way, shots of the car's tail-lights and the outline of a large fixed wing were revealed recently.

The hypercar gets its name from the 1928 and 1929 Targa Florio-winning, French Bugatti race driver Albert Divo.

The Divo is expected to get Bugatti's 1,500hp, 8.0-litre, W16 quad-turbo engine, but lightweighting measures, downforce-boosting bodywork, upgraded suspension and other corner-friendly mechanical tweaks are confirmed.

It’s likely that the hypercar will complete the brand's line-up for the foreseeable future, given that it will be the third variant launched in two years. Bugatti will charge £4.42 million for each of the 40 Divos that will be made.
