New Bugatti Chiron - Less than 42 Seconds from 0 to 400 to 0 Km/h
|   Thursday, September 21, 2017
Recently, the new Bugatti Chiron scored an absolute record, needing 41.96 seconds for the 0-400-0 km/h exercise. The former Formula 1 pilot and current IndyCar pilot Juan Pablo Montoya was behind the wheel, proving that acceleration to a certain speed is just as important as stopping from that speed.

The Colombian pilot activated the Top Speed Speed mode with the Top Speed Key, and when the accelerator is pressed, the W16 engine with a displacement of 8 liters, revs up to 2,800 rpm.
Under these circumstances, the Molsheim car reaches up to 400 km/h in just 32.6 seconds after just 2.621 meters!

Because of the centrifugal force at this speed, every gram of tire turns into 3,600 grams, and the air valve, weighing only 18.3 grams, gets 45 extra kilos!
When the brake is depressed, in just 0.8 seconds, the rear spoiler rises to an angle of 49 degrees to act as an air brake, like on aircraft, generating a downforce of 900 kg on the rear axle.

Therefore, the Chiron needs only 9.3 seconds and 431 meters to stop while going at 400 km/h.
The whole exercise was done over a distance of only 3,122 kilometers.

Juan Pablo Montoya has his own record of 407 km/h on the IndyCar and in 2018 the Colombian could be the one who will drive the Bugatti Chiron for a new absolute speed record for production cars. That's when the Chiron will have to overtake the record of its predecessor, Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, which recorded a speed of 431,072 km/h in 2010.
