The mid-engine sports car from Bugatti Automobiles is finally ready for deliveries after two years of development. It’s inspired by the Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic and the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo concept as far as design is concerned and is mainly a track-focused vehicle. CarSwitch.com, an online marketplace for certified Dubai cars for sale, did some research to share the details with you.
Bugatti Divo Engine And Performance
The hypercar creates more downforce than the Chiron and also weighs less than the two-seater. While Chiron is all about speed, this one is fun-centric. It shares the same engine, which means there is an 8.0-liter W16 under the hood that delivers 1,479 horsepower and 1,600 nm of torque and allows the Divo to go from a standstill to 60 mph in 2.4-seconds. The top speed is 380 km/h (236 mph). There is a NACA air duct on the roof to feed air to the engine, which is paired with a 7-speed DSG dual-clutch gearbox.
The aerodynamics of the vehicle have been fine-tuned intensively for additional downforce. The suspension and chassis settings have also been tweaked to improve the driving experience.
First Coach-built Hyper Sports Car Of The Modern Era
The Divo is no ordinary car and in the words of Bugatti’s President Stephan Winkelmann, it is a “highly customized masterpiece of automotive craftsmanship.” It’s also a celebration of the company’s history of over 100 years.
The name is a homage to French racing driver Albert Divo who won six Grand Prix races. Like previous vintage race cars from the company, the Divo also revives the coachbuilding tradition. However, it is the first Bugatti model to be made digitally. So, the CAD modeling staff and designers basically teamed up to work on it and they were able to create the model in just five months!
Bugatti Divo Exterior And Interior
The Divo is aggressively styled and its front spoiler works to produce more downforce than the Chiron. It also flaunts massive air intakes and lightweight LED headlights on the bonnet. Other noteworthy elements include a 1.83-meter wide rear spoiler, raised diffuser at the rear, and 3D-printed rear lights.
The interior is largely the same as that of the Chiron. New additions include Alcantara upholstery and carbon-fiber trim to reduce weight. The car also features larger shift paddles.
The $5.5-million car cannot be bought any longer
Now, as mentioned before, this is a special sports car and even though it’s finally ready, only 40 units will be made and the price will start at $5.5 million (Dh21 million). So, you will not be able to get your hands on the vehicle. That’s because all the units have been sold already.
