Bugatti Divo unveiled in Pebble Beach where it fits right in

Last week’s Monterey Car week in California turned out to be an incredible for the reveal of numerous new cars. None were more expensive than the Divo. At €5 million apiece, the Bugatti is also the most exclusive. Only 40 will be built and, well, they’re all sold out.

What makes the Divo so special? It is obviously based on the Chiron but the chassis’ been tweaked for maximum cornering and grip. The car sports sophisticated aerodynamics, modified suspension weighs 35 kg (77 lbs.) less than the Chiron. The revised tuning allows for a higher lateral acceleration of 1.6 g thanks in part to 90 kg (198 lbs.) more downforce than the Chiron.

The Bugatti Divo is powered by the same 8.0-litre quad-turbo W16 engine as the Chiron. It produces 1,500 PS or 1,479-horsepwoer and 1,180 lb.-ft. (1,600 Nm) of torque. With the revised aero and chassis, the Divo is 8 seconds faster per lap on the Nardò handling circuit.

The styling is unique as well and is the modern interpretation of Bugatti’s coachbuilding tradition.
