Watch the mighty Bugatti Chiron hit 260 mph

It only needed a 2.7-mile stretch of asphalt to pull it off, including stopping safely

Bugatti’s highly-acclaimed Chiron hypercar never ceases to amaze us, whether it’s the technology behind it or its dynamic capabilities.

Last week, we saw how Bugatti tests the its 3D-printed brakes – which will go inside the Chiron next year – and back in 2017, the French carmaker took the Chiron from 0 to 400 km/h to 0 again in just 41.96 seconds.

But the hypercar’s latest feat comes from the US. Merritt Island, Florida, to be more exact.


On the Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds, the Chiron provided a sample of its rad acceleration potential by managing to hit 260 mph (418 km/h) from a standstill and then stop safely on a 2.7-mile runway.

There’s not much we could really add to pave your way to the video below, although we do hope you’ll start the new year with just as much pace.
