Let me take you back to 2017 and the day when the Bugatti Chiron went from 0-400 km/h and back to zero in just 42 seconds.
We all know that the film was shot using a camera mounted on another Chiron. However, it was more complicated that just setting the camera rolling and smashing the throttle.
Al Clark is the man who shot the brilliant film, which has now been watched more than 40 million times on Youtube. In this video, he explains what all went behind the scenes and how a small oversight almost ruined the film.
2 years ago, Bugatti surprised everyone when they announced the new world record. It took just 32.6 seconds for the Chiron to accelerate to 400 km/h (249 mph), which in itself is a special feat.
The record run took place at Bugatti’s high speed test track in Ehra-Lessien, Germany, which is probably the only track in the world where a Chiron can stretch its legs.
Later, Koenigsegg took up the challenge and broke Bugatti’s 0-400-0 record by 5.56 seconds in an Agera RS.
