Bugatti Chiron has just proved how hyper the car is actually. The company just demonstrated that the 1500 hp shedding out of the 16-cylinder engine accelerated from zero to 400 kmph and back to zero in less than 42 seconds. Bugatti Chiron took 32.6 seconds and 2.6 km to accelerate to up to 400 km. Once the driver hit the brakes then it took about 9 seconds to come to a complete halt and covered a distance of about 490 meters after applying the brakes. The Chiron covered a distance of over 3.12 kms. The driver was no other than the famous Juan Pablo Montoya who has been a Formula 1 fame, won the Indy 500 and Daytona 24hrs. BBC Top Gear mentions that he would have “done anything Bugatti wanted” to drive a Chiron. In fact the racer did not even wear a helmet for setting this record. He said “It gave me such a feeling of security and reliability that I was entirely relaxed and really enjoyed myself during my two days with the car.” Bugatti claims to have sold about 300 of the 500 units of Chiron that it plans to build.
Wolfgang Dürheimer, President Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. had earlier mentioned that “It is part of human nature to cross boundaries and set new records – to run 100 m faster than ever before, to fly even further into space and to enter new realms. This striving is also our driving force at Bugatti. The Chiron is the result of our efforts to make the best even better. Bugatti has tested the limits of physics. There is no area where we have not achieved significant improvements.”
