Take A Ride In The Monstrous Bugatti Chiron At Goodwood

Lord March’s domain was the place to be in order to catch a glimpse of the Bugatti Chiron in its natural element, at this year’s Good Festival of Speed.

The hypercar was put through its paces on the challenging hill climb over the weekend by Andy Wallace, former British racing driver and Le Mans legend, who has been an official Bugatti driver since 2011.

It is a great honor for me to drive this exceptional vehicle at such a fantastic event, especially since this will be its premiere in my home country. I’m sure this will be a highlight of the festival“, Wallace said, before the moving motoring event kicked off.

While Andy Wallace felt the pressure on his shoulders as he was unleashing the Chiron’s 1,500 PS (1,479 HP) and 1,600 Nm (1,180 lb-ft) of torque on the 1.16-mile (1.87 km) long course, the founding father of the Goodwood Festival of Speed, Lord March, became the first non-professional driver to take it out for a short spin.

Impressed by the hypercar’s ability to go from naught to sixty in just 2.3 seconds and up to a road-limited top speed of 261 mph (420 km/h), the British aristocrat said: “In terms of an overall automotive experience, that was at the very top – unbelievable power, yet unbelievably driveable. It was a full rush for all the senses.
