We show that scattering amplitudes in magical, symmetric or homogeneous N=2 Maxwell-Einstein supergravities can be obtained as double copies of two gauge theories, using the framework of color-kinematics duality. The left-hand copy is N=2 super-Yang-Mills theory coupled to a hypermultiplet, whereas the right-hand copy is a nonsupersymmetric theory that can be identified as the dimensional reduction of a D-dimensional Yang-Mills theory coupled to P fermions. For generic D and P, the double copy gives homogeneous supergravities. For P=1 and D=7, 8, 10, 14, it gives the magical supergravities. We compute explicit amplitudes, discuss their soft limits, and study the UV behavior at one loop.
