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. Thanks to its optimal handling performance, the DIVO dances nimbly through curves; every bend becomes an exhilarating moment, a thrill that endures.
The DIVO is a more extreme BUGATTI. It represents a new interpretation of our philosophy ‘form follows performance’ with an uncompromising pursuit of the utmost aerodynamic efficiency. To shape the future, we have embraced the past. The DIVO harks back to the golden era of coachbuilding, a proud tradition nearly a century old, by uniting a rolling chassis with a brand new body. The design is imposingly powerful and striking – unmistakably BUGATTI. by bugatti
Digitaltrends – The Bugatti Divo will make its official debut on August 24 during The Quail — a Motorsport Gathering, a prestigious event that will take place in scenic Monterey, California. Bugatti will make just 40 examples of the model in Molsheim, France, its historic hometown. Pricing starts at 5 million euros, a sum that represents approximately $5.6 million U.S. at the current conversion rate. That’s a hefty sum — the Chiron starts in the vicinity of $3 million — but don’t be surprised if most, if not all, of the production run is spoken for by the time Bugatti finally shows the car to the public. The brand’s loyal customers have already seen it behind closed doors and some swiftly made a deposit to reserve an early production slot.
What’s in a name? Why Divo? It’s not the male form of diva. Bugatti explains it named the model after Albert Divo, a French racing driver who won the grueling Targa Florio race in 1928 and 1929 behind the wheel of one of its cars.
