April 27 marks the 15th anniversary of Veyron's 16.4
became the first production car to exceed the 400 mph magic limit
Powered by an 8-liter W16 engine with 4 liters
turbo-compressors, and a total of 1,001 hp and 1,250 Nm, seven-speed DSG transmission
this hyper-sports car reached a top speed of 407 km / h. Otherwise,
to accelerate to 100 km / h it took 2.5 s, up to 200 km / h 7.3 s, and up to 300
km / h arrived in 16.7 seconds.
Also interesting is that on some measurements Veyron
reached 411 and even 427 kilometers per hour, but these measurements were not taken as
accurate enough. In the cockpit, that speed could not be displayed at
a speedometer that only showed speeds of 300 km / h.
After this, Bugatti continued to develop the project
the fastest production car, so in June 2010, the Veyron 16.4 Super
Sport with a 1,200hp engine reached 431mph, and that obsession with speed
she never left them.
Last year, a new Chiron model was introduced into the game
was tasked to exceed the speed of 300 mph, or 482.80 km / h.
The specially prepared Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ has been successful.
A new and still current record of 490,484 km / h has been reached!
