WATCH THE BUGATTI CHIRON RECLAIM THE WORLD RECORD🏆 FOR 0 TO 400KM/H & BACK TO 0 IN AN INSANE 42 SECONDS. 💨🚦
Now we all know the $3 million (R41 million) Bugatti is capable of some truly mind bending incredible performance, but this new Chiron is in a league of its own. After having its title challenged and taken by a Swedish car company called koenigsegg as well as Americas Hennessy Venom GT, Bugatti knew their new car had to be the one to obliterate the competition.
On Monday, Bugatti once again demonstrated the awesome capabilities of its newest car with a record setting run that saw the Chiron accelerate from a standstill to 400 kph (249 mph) and then come to a stop in just 41.96 seconds.
In the process, the Chiron became the fastest production vehicle to ever complete this type of run.
According to Bugatti, the Chiron needed just 32.6 seconds and a little over 2.5 km to get the Chiron up to 400 km/h. Another 9.3 seconds and 487m later, the Bugatti was back at a standstill. In total, the Chiron's 0-400-0 run required just a tad over 3.1 km.
"Bugatti is the first car brand that not only calculates how fast a car can go from zero to 400 to zero on a computer. We actually drove it," Bugatti Automobiles president Wolfgang Dürheimer said in a statement. "Where others are satisfied with theory, we validate our data with real-life values. Just like we did with the Chiron."
