Bugatti sold all forty copies to his most loyal customers in one go. The car did this on the basis of a design sketch and a price tag of five million euros (some 6.3 million euros on Dutch registration). A car was not there at that moment. For the Divo, Bugatti approached dozens of Chiron owners. More than forty customers immediately wanted to buy the car, so that there is now even a waiting list for the expensive model.
The fully hand-built Divo will be on the market in 2020. The last copy will be made in 2021. Bugatti needs a few months to build a car. Normally the small group of technicians make seventy cars a year. Meanwhile the 380 km / h fast and 1500 hp strong sports car is sold out.
The Divo, named after an old driver of the French brand, is the sportier brother of the luxurious speed monster Chiron, with which he shares his carbon fiber architecture. Chassis, bodywork, downforce, weight and driving character have been adjusted to make the hypercar faster in turns. In 2020, manual construction will start.
Autovisie was already introduced to the unique sports car for the official unveiling. Watch the video here, in which Sjoerd van Bilsen explains why the Divo costs twice as much as the Chiron.
