world record-speed for a production car was set by the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport in the year 2010. On the test track Ehra-Lessien of Volkswagen, the pilot Pierre-Henri Raphanel managed to reach a speed of 431 km/h. But the Veyron is history and its successor, the Bugatti Chiron, seems to be over. And the brand says will try to beat this record soon.
The own Wolfgang Dürheimer, CEO of Bugatti, has made it clear that will try to with its new model. “We know that Chiron is faster (than the Veyron SS), but we still don’t know how much,” said the manager. He added that “we have done calculations with simulations, but always different to sit in the car and do it for real”. To check this, will have to go to practice.
When they presented at the last Geneva motor show, the Bugatti Chiron promised a maximum speed (electronically limited) 420 km/h, still something above that of the Veyron Super Sport WRE, which was also limited. Some rumors indicate that the new Chiron deslimitado could reach up to 463 km/h. Although there is nothing confirmed it would be feasible, bearing in mind that the marker of the vehicle up to 500 km/h.
Still have to wait and see what they are capable of the motor W16 of 8.0 liters and four turbos on the Bugatti Chiron, which comes with a power of 1.500 CV and 1,600 Nm of torque. The attempt to beat this speed record is expected to be during the 2018. The place would be the same as the last time, the facilities of Ehra-Lessien which has a size larger than 20 kilometres, with a huge straight 9 miles.
