Bugatti Divo: The Staggering Stats Behind the Hypercar Worth $8.2m

There’s a reason the Bugatti Divo is a hypercar. The A$8.2 million hyper-luxury car is one of the most expensive cars ever made, one of the rarest cars in the world and one of the fastest to ever come off a factory floor.

The Divo was offered only to existing Bugatti customers, for whom the A$8.2 million asking price, plus taxes was clearly not a bank breaker. According to the company, the average Bugatti buyer owns 42 vehicles, five homes, three private jets, three helicopters and a yacht.

The high-end French manufacturer Bugatti is no stranger to producing record-breaking supercars. Both it’s previous models; the Bugatti Veyron and Bugatti Chiron became the world’s fastest supercar when they were released in 2005 and 2016. The Bugatti Divo is on another level.

The powerful street-car puts out a staggering 1500hp thanks to the quad-turbocharged, 8.0L W-16 engine. Bugatti claims a 0-100km/h time of 2.4 seconds, which we don’t doubt, and a top speed that’s limited to an eye-watering 380km/h.

The upgraded aerodynamics features the same iconic C-shaped Bugatti-line although slightly raised on the Bugatti Divo. A wider rear wing, a NACA roof duct, larger front chin spoiler, and air intakes provide 1005 lbs of downforce allowing the car to hang on for 1.6Gs of force around the bends.

The sweeter-handling hypercar has undergone a makeover as well. The new Bugatti styling now comes with a more menacing demeanour. Aggressive aero dominates the front end where a wider horseshoe grille, a carved up hood, a lower, stealthier nose and mean headlights, define the dangerous look.

The Bugatti Divo is exposed carbon fibre making it 35Kg lighter than the Bugatti Chiron and tipping the scales at 1995Kg. Head around the rear and you’ll find a fairly exposed tail designed to filter out the extreme heat from the engine and a written Bugatti name instead of the classic EB logo.

It’s no easy supercar to get your hands on. Bugatti only unveiled the Divo to a select group of Chiron owners in 2018, with all Bugatti Divo’s selling out before being revealed to the public – that’s a limited 40 units of the hypercar were ever made.

There was never really a chance for the general public to join the exclusive owners club – the last Divo produced rolled off Bugatti’s Molsheim factory floor in July 2021 going straight to the previously-selected customer in Europe.

Bugatti is known to produce some of the finest vehicles in the world and with that comes the high-end cost. If the opportunity arose to get your hands on this French, hyper-luxury car, you’d need a cool A$8.2million to get you started. The price tag is twice as much as the previous Bugatti Chiron and 3 times as much as the Bugatti Veyron.
