By now you would’ve seen the record breaking 0-400-0 km/h run of the all-new Bugatti Chiron all over the internet. Accelerating from standstill to 400 km/h and immediately come to a complete stop in just 41.96 seconds is without a doubt an impressive feat.
However, what surprised netizens was not the fact that the Chrion managed the stunning feat. We wouldn’t expect less, it’s a 1,500 hp Chiron after all.

Its century sprint takes under 2.5 seconds, 0 to 200 km/h in less than 6.5 seconds and 0 to 298 km/h in under 13.6 seconds. Top speed is an unbelievable 418 km/h and as you can see in the video, gunning for V-Max is effortless, to say the least.
