Deliveries of the Bugatti Divo have Begun

Only 40 units of the hypercar will be delivered at five million euros apiece.


  • The first customers of the Bugatti Divo have taken delivery of their car.

  • Each Divo built undergoes a five-hour, 300-km test drive before delivery.

  • The Divo costs five million euros.


Only 40 units of the Bugatti Divo hypercar were sold and will be produced, and the first ones have been delivered to their proud new owners, according to the manufacturer.

3 Things To Know About the $9M Bugatti Centodieci

After being presented for the first time at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering show in California back in August 2018, the Divo shares the same bones as the Bugatti Chiron, but is more adept at circling a racetrack than the latter. All 40 units were actually sold before the car was unveiled.

The Bugatti Divo is equipped with a quad-turbocharged, 8.0L W16 engine that develops 1,480 horsepower (1,500 PS) as well as 1,180 pound-feet of torque from 2,000 to 6,000 rpm. A dual-clutch, seven-speed gearbox feeds a full-time all-wheel drivetrain. The brand says the 4,400-pound (1,995-kg) car blast from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in 2.4 seconds—just like the Chiron.

However, the Divo’s 380-km/h (237.5-mph) top speed is reduced compared to the Chiron’s 420-km/h (262.5 mph) terminal velocity, as its retuned suspension and increased downforce enhances the car’s handling characteristics. Development took almost two years and production started this spring.

The company also stated that the Bugatti Divo marks the return of its coachbuilding practices, and subsequent models have been released afterwards, such as the Bugatti La Voiture Noire and the Bugatti Centodieci.

Before delivery, each car gets a five-hour, 188-mile (300-km) final approval test drive after exiting the Molshein factory in Alsace, France. The Divo’s carbon body is covered with a special film and underbody is replaced by a special cover to prevent any damage before being handed over to the customer. “Each vehicle is intensively tested and checked before delivery so that we can guarantee the absolute quality of our hyper sports cars such as the Divo,” said Christophe Piochon, Member of the Board for Production and Logistics at Bugatti and Molsheim Site Manager. “We want to get as close to perfection as possible. Our customers expect that from us.”

Each Bugatti Divo was sold for five million euros, which is about $5.3M USD or $7.9M CAD at the current exchange rates.
