Bugatti’s Newest Beast: The Divo

Published

on

It’s brutal in appearance, almost frighteningly fast and limited to just 40 examples, all of which have been pre-sold at a staggering €5 million apiece. That equates to about $8 million, plus taxes and options, making the new Bugatti Divo the world’s dearest production car by a considerable margin.

The sold-out model is armed with an eight-liter W16 engine, a Bugatti classic, capable of 1,500 PS. The Divo was designed for maximized aerodynamics: a modified chassis plays part in making the car 35 kilograms lighter than the standard Chiron with 90 kilograms more downforce.

The Divo is based on the Chiron coupe – a mere steal at €2.4 million ($4.3 million), ex factory. Anscheidt says the Chiron is technically challenging because there is so much componentry, including 10 radiators just below the surface plus in addition to the enormous eight-litre engine with quad turbos.

The Divo is not more powerful than the Chiron, just lighter and with more downforce. That will make it quicker around a race circuit, albeit at the expense of top speed (a mere 380km/h instead of 420). Anscheidt calls it “more beastly” than the Chiron.

The vehicle is originally Japanese and can be driven for 400 kilometers per charge, with one charge saving LE3,000 per 10,000 kilometers.

Such vehicles will come in handy for those looking to save some cash. The minister expressed hope that taxi drivers will purchase half the production, in order to save money spent on maintenance.

Tawfik further explained that the brand was selected back in September and then after two months, the Chinese team visited Egypt for project’s preparations which came to a halt because of the pandemic.

But fortunately, three weeks ago the cooperation protocols were signed and in the next three months, feasibility and detailed studies will be completed as well.

So that by the end 2021, the car will hopefully be available for consumers.
