The Bugatti Chiron has set a new speed record. Well, no surprises there, right?
Indycar racer and ex-Formula 1 driver Juan Pablo Montoya set a new record with a 1500 hp Chiron. The hypercar was accelerated to 0-400 km/h (249 mph) which is when Montoya dropped the anchors and brought the car to a complete stop.
The Chiron took just 42 sec to accelerate to close to its top speed, brake and come to a standstill. In case you’re wondering, it hit the magical number of 400 clicks in 32.6 sec. The crazy part though is the way it decelerates -- 400 to 0 in 9.4 sec! I case you’re wondering what the top speed of the Chiron might be, watch the video till the end.
