New Bugatti Chiron Breaks 300 mph Barrier

 

On 2 August 2019, Andy Wallace hit a vmax of 304.77 mph (490.48 kph) in a pre-production vehicle of a new Bugatti Chiron derivative at Ehra-Lessien, becoming the first hypercar to break 300mph.

The velocity is verified by the TÜV – Germany’s Technical Inspection Association – meaning Andy and the prototype Chiron supersede previous really, really fast runs from SSC (256.18mph two-way average, 2007), Hennessey (270.49mph two-way average, 2013) and Koenigsegg (284.55 vmax, 277.87 two-way average, 2017) as well as punching through the mythical 300mph target.

You can find the stylized and edited Bugatti version of the incredible feat below.
