• The Bugatti Divo Is As Easy to Drive as a Volkswagen Golf

There’s way more to the Bugatti Divo than a blistering price tag

Bugatti was pretty blunt in describing the Divo, claiming the Chiron-based derivative was, in fact, tailored specifically for the corners. And while we might know everything Bugatti wanted us to know about the Divo, nothing compares to the good ol’ driving impressions.

TopGear drove the $5.8-million Bugatti Divo and found some interesting stuff, including the way the Divo handles at low speeds, around the city.

You don’t need pro driver credentials to drive the Divo

Buying one, however, is way more complicated. In order to get your hands on a Bugatti Divo (just 40 units are to leave Molsheim), you had to own a Chiron. So, basically, you had to spend $3 million on a hypercar just to be eligible to splash almost twice the cash on the Bugatti Divo.

Now, as you’re about to find out from the attached video, the Divo might be finely tuned for endless laps on the track, but it’s as easy to drive as a Volkswagen Golf.

Sure, that might seem like a stretch, even coming from TopGear, but if it’s something Bugatti does best (among a myriad of other things) is mixing flawlessly luxury and ultra-high performance.

What’s more, the mechanical tweaks and the whole setup of the Divo helps with moving a two-ton hypercar with utmost ease even in tight spots. And as TopGear reports, the steering is light and overall, the Divo turns with “the tenacity of something much smaller,” like a DSG Golf, as clichéic as that might sound when referring to a hypercar that’s powered by an 8-liter, W-16 engine with 1500 horsepower.

That said, do check out the whole video because it also includes a surprise “guest”.

Tudor’s first encounter with cars took place when he was only a child. Back then, his father brought home a Trabant 601 Kombi and a few years later, a Wartburg 353. At that time, he was too young to know how they worked and way too young to drive them, but he could see one thing – each of them had a different ethos and their own unique personality. As time went on, he started seeing that in other cars as well, and his love for the automobile was born.  Read full bio
