Bugatti has revealed that its insane W16-powered beast set the world record for acceleration from a standstill to 400 km/h (246 mph) and braking to a standstill.
The record was supervised and officially certified by SGS-TÜV Saar and teased by Bugatti on its Facebook page where you can watch the Bugatti Chiron accelerating to 400 km/h.
About the time, the Bugatti Chiron was able to accelerate from zero to four hundred kilometers per hour in only 32.6 seconds and just 2,621 meters. While to accelerate from zero to 400 and braking to zero it took 41.96 seconds and covered 3,112 meters.
Invited by Bugatti, behind the wheel and stepping deep on the gas was the former Formula 1 driver, who is now active in the IndyCar series, Juan Pablo Montoya.
Probably Bugatti will release a video will the full record soon, but while this doesn’t happen, down below you find a gallery with a “special edition” of the car.
