Would you believe that in less than a year, the price of the Bugatti Divo has more than doubled? That’s right, it has more than 200 percent. Here is a look at the Bugatti Divo
At its unveiling at last year’s Pebble Beach Concours, there were two certainties about the Divo:
- The Divo was an honest-to-goodness track machine, unlike the Chiron on which it is based
- All of the Divo build slots – there were only 40 scheduled to be built – were sold, making it quite exclusive
Today, though, says Motor1.com, the Divo is not as exclusive as it once was because one of the build slots has been listed for sale at $7.5 million. Originally, the Divo was to have cost in the vicinity of $3.2 million. And, now, according to the German sale site, Mobile.de, a dealer, DI Automobile GmbH, located near Munich, has put its build slot on the market.
If you have enough to afford the purchase price, you can expect to have your Divo delivered sometime toward the end of this year or the beginning of 2020.
And, if you do take delivery of the Divo, you should know that it is definitely track-oriented. It is far different than the luxurious hypercar, the Chiron, on which it is based. For example, though both vehicles share the same 1,500-horsepower, quad-turbocharged W16 engine, Divo has a wealth of performance parts that separate it from the Chiron. And, the Divo is somewhat lighter than the Chiron, by 77 pounds. Given these upgrades, says Motor1, Divo can almost run rings around the Chiron. At the Nardo test track, the Divo outran the Chiron by eight seconds. Divo does have a top speed of 236 mph (380) kmh. Bugatti's Chiron Used As 'Parent' For The Divo.
Interestingly, when it was introduced it looked as if the 40 Divos, presold before the announcement of the vehicle was made, would be in the hands of wealthy car enthusiasts and out of the reach or site of anyone else. However, now that the listing is out there, it looks as if the Divo is fair game. However, as has been noted, you have to have more than a little cash to afford it. However, if you are the person who does win the bid, you will be rewarded with a very nice high-performance Bugatti hypercar.
