Bugatti Divo Spotted Testing (Again), Looks Great In Matte Black

As Bugatti continues testing the Divo before it commences deliveries, we’ve been given the chance to take another look at the spectacular hypercar.

Seen somewhere in Germany by a car spotter, who sent the images to Autogespot, this one appears to be a prototype. It has the same matte black look as another test vehicle, images of which driven by development engineer Julia Lemke during hot weather testing were released by Bugatti itself.

Customer deliveries are bound to commence later this year, but no matter how much money you’re willing to throw at them, Bugatti will not sell you one. That’s because all 40 units of the Divo were already sold out even before it was shown to the world last summer at Pebble Beach. Thus, the only way to get your hands on it is to search the “used” car market for a build slot, like this one, which goes for a whopping $9 million.

With its new body panels and other bits and pieces, the Divo looks nothing like the Chiron, on which it is based. It also uses the same 8.0-liter W16 quad-turbo behemoth of an engine that puts out 1,500 PS (1,479 hp / 1,103 kW) and 1,600 Nm (1,180 lb-ft) of torque.

While Bugatti made headlines by breaking the long-standing speed record held by the McLaren F1 with the Veyron, the Chiron is limited the top speed to 380 km/h (236 mph). That doesn’t seem like much compared to the 431 km/h (268 mph) Veyron SS, but the automaker claims that current tire technology doesn’t allow for it to try a new record – and, besides, sheer speed is not what the Chiron or the Divo are all about. Or that’s the official line anyway.
