Bugatti Divo: The ultra expensive Hypercar
The Bugatti Divo at the Paris motor show was a stunner. The Bugatti Divo is the French hypercar maker's crown jewel currently and commands a price tag of Rs. 41 crores ($5.8 million). According to Bugatti, the DIVO is the most agile and dynamic car BUGATTI has ever created - a perfect homage for the 110th anniversary, which will be held in 2019. A monumental driving machine, production will be strictly limited to just 40 units. Combining heart-stopping acceleration and greater downforce, it is made to excite – a car built for corners.
Only 40 of these beautiful masterpieces would be made and no surprise all 40 of them are already sold. It has been named after Albert Divo who is two time Targa Florio Winner.
There are a lot of changes to the body design and the front part of the car. It has got a better aerodynamic than the earlier Bugatti Veyron and the Chiron. The rear wing is actually 1.8 meters wide to give it a better downward force for a better aerodynamic performance.
Others Hope For Breakthroughs
The Bugatti Divo is powered by the same eight-liter quad-turbo W16 engine which also propels the Chiron and puts out a whopping 1500PS of peak power and is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. While its predecessors, the Veyron, and the Chiron managed a top speed of 400+ kmph, the Divo is restricted to 380 kmph.
The power it gives out is 1103.2 KW @ 6700 RPM, 1500 HP @ 6700 RPM, 1479 BHP @ 6700 RPM. PowerDrift got a chance to better admire this beast at the Paris Motor Show and this is what they think:
However, the Bugatti Divo is meant to deliver better performance on the track. It has already proved its credentials by being 8 seconds faster than the Chiron on the Nardo handling circuit in Italy.
Door trims have also been omitted to make the Divo as light and nimble as possible. Under the hood, it is powered by Bugatti's iconic eight-liter W16 engine. Bugatti has always been one of the fastest cars on the planet. The VEYRON shook the world with a w16 engine and was in lead for years.
The price is a way too high, but it is a Bugatti and you can't really complain about that. Give us your views on this car and what do you think BUGATTI has worked on the most.
