The velocity is verified by the TÜV – Germany’s Technical Inspection Association – meaning Andy and the prototype Chiron supersede previous really, really fast runs from SSC (256.18mph two-way average, 2007), Hennessey (270.49mph two-way average, 2013) and Koenigsegg (284.55 vmax, 277.87 two-way average, 2017) as well as punching through the mythical 300mph target.

New Speed Record 490,48 km/h by Bugatti Chiron

Bugatti is likely hoping that the new record will end, or at least reduce, its role in the growing arms race between hypercar makers over who has the fastest. In 2017, a Koenigsegg Agera RS broke Bugatti’s record with a speed of 278 mph, leading some to question whether the Chiron could top it. Bugatti says that after shattering the mythical 300 mph barrier, it can redirect attention to the other attributes of its cars and not focus solely on speed.
