The Bluest Thing You’ll See Today Is Bugatti’s Final Divo

The final example of the customised hypercar’s limited production run has just been shown by the French automaker. The 40th Divo will be delivered to a faithful Bugatti owner in Europe almost exactly three years after the exquisite track-focused speed machine was first introduced.

The Divo, named after French racing great Albert Divo and initially revealed at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in 2018, is the marque’s first coachbuilding project of the twenty-first century. It’s essentially a track-focused Chiron with a body influenced by the Type 57SC Atlantic and Vision Gran Turismo. The car was only available to a small number of dedicated customers who collaborated with Bugatti to design a car that met their needs. The concept was a hit, as the full production run had already been sold out by the time the car debuted.

The final Divo is painted in EB 110 LM blue, which is the same colour as Bugatti’s last Le Mans car. Dark blue carbon is used as an accent, and matte gold rims are used. The blue theme extends inside the car, with seats and dashboards in French Racing Blue and Deep Blue, punctuated by matte grey carbon accents. It’s not as bizarre as some of the other Divos we’ve seen, but it’s one-of-a-kind, just like every other example from the run.

The Divo, like the Chiron before it, is powered by an 8.0-liter quad-turbo W-16 engine. The huge engine produces 1,500 hp and 1,180 ft lbs of torque and can push the car to an electronically regulated top speed of 236 mph when mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. A 77-pound weight loss, 198 pounds of increased downforce, and a redesigned suspension result in a car that handles better than the one on which it is based.

It should come as no surprise that the Divo is even more expensive than a conventional Bugatti. The exact price was not disclosed, but the hypercar starts at $5.4 million before customising charges. Given that there are only 40 Divos made, each one is one-of-a-kind, this could end up being a collector car that pays for itself.
