Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. officially introduced the stunning Divo to the public in 2019, during the 89th Geneva International Motor Show. Named after the famous French race driver Albert Divo, the track sports car is a stylish 2-door coupe with a mid-mounted powerplant and AWD drive system.
The supercar is almost identical to another famous name from the manufacturer’s portfolio – the Chiron. It actually shares most of its technical specifications, starting out with the powerful 8.0 W16 (1500 Hp at 6,700 rpm.) engine with a torque of 1600 Nm at 2000-6000 rpm (1,180.1 lb.-ft. at 2000-6000 rpm.) and displacement of 7,993 cm3 (487.76 cu. in.). Paired with it is a quite responsive 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
Divo’s fuel urban fuel consumption is 35.2 l/100 km (6.68 US mpg/8.03 UK mpg), while the combined is 22.5 l per 100 km (10.45 US mpg/12.55 UK mpg). The acceleration from 0 to 100 is in 2.4 seconds, and the possible top speed is limited to 380 km/h (236.12 mph) due to the immense tire pressure and additional drag pressure generated by the aerodynamic forces.
The kerb weight is almost 2 tonnes – 1995 kg (4,398.22 lbs.). It’s Bugatti’s Divo dimensions that directly speak about its massive scale: 4,641 mm (182.72 in.) of length, 2018 mm (79.45 in.) of width, 1212 mm (47.72 in.) of height and a wheelbase of 2711 mm (or 106.73 in. ).
Other important specs of Bugatti’s limited Divo model are the matching front and rear suspension types – double wishbone, the front, and rear ventilated disc brakes as well as the multi-point injection fuel system.
In terms of design, the glamorous looking Divo is inspired by two iconic for the manufacturer’s automobiles – the 1934-1940 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic and the conceptual Vision Gran Turismo. The exterior sports large, 1.8 meters wider, fixed rear wing and massive front chin spoiler. Brand-new side skirts, head and tail lights, big bonnet and wheel arches vents for better cooling add a lot to the outlines of the sports car. Refined cabin insolation, a mixture of carbon fiber and Alcantara, lighter audio system and the absence of the side door storage spaces finish Divo’s image.
Following its tradition to roll out limited edition model from time to time, Bugatti Divo will be produced in just 40 units – all of them being sold out even before the official premiere of the exotic vehicle.
An intriguing fact is that Divo is one of Bugatti’s most expensive model to come out of the construction plant.
