Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani Bugatti Divo Spotted in London
London, as a worldwide financial centre, is a favourite destination for many of the world’s wealthiest people and their priceless possessions. The English city has no shortage of supercars, with some of the industry’s rarest brands and models crowding the streets. As a result, it’s not uncommon to see Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and even the newest Bugatti models riding the city’s winding roads or fearlessly parked on the streets while their owners take in the sights.
One such supercar, the Bugatti Divo, was seen in at least two videos in London. The Divo was introduced in 2018, and it is one of the Chiron variations that the business has created after the Veyron was replaced in 2016. The Divo, named after Bugatti racing driver Albert Divo, was sold out before Bugatti could unveil it to the public, and finding one in the wild, let alone parked on the side of a London street, is a sweet delight.

The Divo is shown navigating London’s twisty streets before parking next to an unremarkable curb in the two footage. Other high-end companies’ automobiles fill the street, while mainstream models are dispersed throughout the lineup. It’s also a busy street, with taxis, couriers, and other vehicles passing by, yet the owner didn’t mind parking it there. A Qatari Sheik owns the multi-million-dollar Bugatti, which has a California licence plate, making the Divo’s debut in London even more unique.
Despite the fact that the two cars share the same 1,500-horsepower (1,118-kilowatt) W16 engine, the Divo is a Chiron derivative. The Divo, on the other hand, has an aerodynamics package that makes the car faster on the track but reduces the top speed to a meagre 236 miles per hour (380 kilometres per hour). That’s a far cry from the Chiron’s top speed of 261 mph (420 km/h), but Bugatti felt it was required for a faster and lighter supercar.

With only 40 Bugatti Divos in existence, seeing one might be a once-in-a-lifetime event for most of us. However, those in London get to enjoy an endless parade of high-end cars from around the world when the rich visit. What do you think will show up next on London’s busy streets?
