The Divo was unveiled to select Chiron customers in secret one-to-one meetings in spring 2018 and all 40 vehicles had been sold within a matter of weeks, long before the hypercar was publicly revealed to a global audience at the Concours d’Elegance in Pebble Beach in 2018. Costing around five million euros, the Divo was Bugatti’s most expensive model at that time.
The final Bugatti Divo features Bugatti EB 110 LM Blue color – a nod to Bugatti’s last official Le Mans factory race car. The contrasting Blue Carbon forms a link to the modern age. The colors French Racing Blue and Deep Blue of the interior as well as matte gray carbon elements combine history with the present day.
The Bugatti Divo’s streamlined lateral line, additional air intakes, and the new LED headlamps with boomerang daytime running lights contribute to its sporty look. The rear is dominated by a complex 3D rear light as part of the rear grille, while a raised diffuser boosts the wideness effect at the rear. The car is powered by an iconic 8.0-liter W16 engine with 1,500 PS which is supplied with air by the striking NACA duct air intake with a central fin on the roof.
The model is named for the French race car driver Albert Divo, who scored a series of race victories for Bugatti over a 20-year period, including in six Grand Prix races and twice in the Targa Florio. In honor of him and headquarters in Molsheim, the French flag adorns the Divo’s left and right front fenders.
