France - Bugatti has broken yet another speed barrier in the automotive world, as its new Chiron reached 0-400km/h in less than 42 seconds.

Fastest time by a production car

This is the fastest time ever reached and officially measured for this driving manoeuvre for a production vehicle

This underscores the supercar’s unique position in the extreme performance range. The world record was set by Juan Pablo Montoya, winner of the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix, two-time winner of the Indy 500 and three-time winner of the 24 hours of Daytona. 

The 0-400 manoeuvre is the first step on the way to a new world speed record for production vehicles which Bugatti intends to set in 2018 and a further highlight in the success story of the Chiron.

'It takes your breath away'

Montoya said: “When you are driving the Chiron for the first time, you cannot imagine how powerful it is. And just so stable and consistent.

"With the Chiron, it was all quite easy. Just get in and drive off. Incredible.”
