‘Regular’ Bugatti Chiron Shows Super Sport 300+ It’s Still Real Fast

The Bugatti Chiron is fast. In fact, the new Chiron Super Sport 300+ is the very first production car to smash through the 300 mph (482 km/h) barrier but just how quickly can a ‘standard’ Chiron model rocket down the standing mile?

To find out, the owner of a glorious dark red Chiron took the car to the Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds where they set about accelerating down the runway at truly scary speeds.

Off the line, it is a well-established fact that the Chiron’s 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W16 engine with 1,478 hp and all-wheel drive makes it one of the most accelerative cars on earth and capable of reaching 62 mph (100 km/h) in a jaw-dropping 2.4 seconds. Now, you may be tempted to say ‘Hey, but a Tesla Model S P100D can do the same!’ and while that’s true, it is after 62 mph where the Chiron’s pace really takes your breath away.

The digital speedo in the video shows the Chiron accelerating from 62 mph to 155 mph (250 km/h) in a hair over six seconds, something that very few other cars on earth can do. After hitting 155 mph mark, the French hypercar continues to sprint forward and is able to top out at 226 mph (363 km/h) as it crosses the mile marker.

A stock Bugatti Chiron may be pretty insane but there are some crazier road cars out there, namely a handful of twin-turbo Lamborghini Huracans that can hit 200 mph (320 km/h) in just a quarter-mile and over 250 mph (402 km/h) in half a mile.

 

  • I’D RATHER HAVE THIS THAN THE PIMPED UP 300+.

    • Matt

      The 300+’s new bodywork looks amazing though, it’s like a piece of art. Nothing ‘pimped up’ about making necessary aerodynamic changes… everything that was changed was for a sound engineering reason.

  • 227 is a long way from 300

    • Matt

      It could have gone faster had the runway been longer…

  • SteersUright

    The speedo was still moving fast at 221. I wonder if its electronically limited?

    Accelerates like it’s kmh for a supercar.
