When it comes to a Bugatti Chiron, there’s nothing impossible! And it’s not so weird cause the car just beat any records. It went from 0 to 249 mph and back to 0 in just 42 seconds, amazing huh?
You can’t achieve all that much in 42 seconds. It’s not even long enough to make a decent cup of tea, and yet that’s all the Bugatti Chiron needs to go all the way from 0-400kmh (249mph), and back to a standstill. Impressed? You should be. In a test performed last month, the Chiron achieved the feat in just 41.96 seconds, bagging an SGS-TÜV Saar-approved record in the process. Of course, no one else times their cars like that so there weren’t any other cars to beat, but that’s the whole point Bugatti is making here: its cars are so fast, they need 0-400-0 times. After all, it goes one better than Koenigsegg, famous for its constant 0-300-0 record smashing.
The car needed 32 seconds and just over 1.6 miles to hit 249mph, at which point the brakes were firmly applied, putting 2g of force through the car. The Chrion came to a standstill under 10 seconds later, having covered 1.9 miles in total during the run.
