Automotive Youtuber TheStradMan, known for his positively purple collection of vehicles, has helped his friend take delivery of a brand new Bugatti Divo. However, this one is far from ordinary, if you could ever call a Divo that.
The hypercar cost around $5.4 million, and its owner also has the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo, a Chiron, and a Veyron Vitesse in his collection. It was air-freighted directly from Bugatti’s factory in Molsheim, France, all the way to Los Angeles, California, and to add to the pageantry of uncrating the car, Bugatti even included a big carbon fiber box containing… the key.
The Divo is powered by an 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W16 engine making 1,479 hp (1500 PS / 1,103 kW) and 1180 lb-ft (1,600 Nm) of torque. 0-60 mph (0-100 km/h) is dealt with in just 2.4 seconds and its top speed is 236 mph (380 km/h).
In fact, it’s slightly slower than the Chiron it’s based on due to it being more track-focused. As such, all the additional aero it has creates more downforce, keeping the car stuck to the tarmac, but resulting in a lower top speed. Even so, thanks to its improved aerodynamics, the Divo is able to go around Nardo a whole 8 seconds faster than the Chiron – not that we don’t expect many owners to be hitting up any track days with their $5.4 million hypercar.
This Divo is one of only 40 being produced for the entire world, and one of only a handful in the United States. Finished in a deep red with black and red accents throughout, it gets its “Ladybug” moniker from the spotted pattern occupying the areas behind Bugatti’ signature C-shaped body line.
