All this while, Bugatti has been working on a very aerodynamic platform that has materialized as the latest and greatest in automotive technology when it comes to speed. Lo and behold, the Bugatti Chiron prototype reclaimed the title of the world’s fastest car after the title was taken away by the Koenigsegg Agera RS last year. The Bugatti Chiron managed to break the walls of the famed ‘300 mph barrier’ by reaching a speed of 304.773 mph on the German test track named Ehra-Lessien.
The streamlined alterations assumed a huge job in helping the Chiron become the quickest vehicle on the planet, however, different variables assumed a major job also. The vehicle was fitted with fortified Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires that were sent through an X-beam machine before being introduced to ensure they were 100% flawless. We don’t know whether Bugatti rolled out any improvements to the suspension or to the motor. The standard Chiron utilizes an 8.0-liter, 16-cylinder motor quad-turbocharged which produces 1,500 horsepower and 1,180 pound-feet of torque. It’s profanely snappy; Digital Trends called its speeding up uncanny in the wake of driving it on the streets around its main residence.
The 304-mph run brings the top speed crown over into Bugatti’s court. The Veyron Super Sport earned the boasting rights when it arrived at 267 mph on a similar track in 2010, however it was knockdown from the platform’s top spot when the Koenigsegg Agera RS hit 285 mph in 2017. The Swedish boutique automaker can’t utilize Volkswagen’s test track, so the record endeavor broadly occurred on a shut stretch of a Nevada expressway.
