French Supercar maker Bugatti has announced that it’s hypercar Bugatti Chiron has officially broken the 300 miles per hour barrier which still seems not possible to accept as this speed is common with airplanes not cars.
But Bugatti has proof of it in the video below.
The company said in the statement that Andy Wallace, Le Mans winner and Bugatti test driver, reaching a top speed of 304.773 mph (490.484 km/h) on August 2nd on the VW-owned test track at Ehra-Lessien in the German state of Lower Saxony.
Andy Wallace was driving a prototype version of the Bugatti Chiron which is not available for sale for anyone yet.
As reported exclusively by Top Gear, which writes that the velocity was confirmed by the TÜV – Germany’s Technical Inspection Association. That means Bugatti Chiron beat records previously set by SSC (256.18 mph, 2007), Hennessey (270.49 mph, 2013) and Koenigsegg (284.55 mph, 2017).
The original Bugatti Chiron is priced at $3 million was introduced in 2016 has 16 cylinders with four turbochargers which generates a total power output of 1,500 horsepower and reached to 0 to 100 km/h in less than 2.5 seconds.
Last year the company introduced the Chiron Sport which is 40 pounds lighter than the normal Chiron and cost $260,000 more.
Driving at 200 mph is like a death zone and I just wonder driving at 300 mph is beyond death.
A new announcement from Bugatti says that the company will produce 30 Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ which will cost just $3.9 million. It will generate 1,600 horsepower and will be the first road-legal car to run at 300 miles per hour.
