Bugatti Chiron world record 490km/h – 304mph.Video from race track Ehra-Lessian in Germany

Bugatti test driver Andy Wallace reached 490.48 km/h (304.77 mph) in a modified near production ready Chiron prototype at Volkswagen’s test facility in Ehra-Lessian in Germany.

Factory test driver Andy Wallace piloted a slightly modified Bugatti Chiron to an official 304.773 mph at the Ehra-Lessien test track in Germany.
The car has a slightly more powerful version of the Chiron’s quad-turbo W-16 tuned to make 1600 horsepower.
Bugatti president Stephan Winkelmann says this is it; Bugatti is going to stop going for speed records now and will “concentrate on other areas.”

“Bugatti was the first to exceed 300 mph. Its name will go down in the history books, and it will stay that way forever.”

As for Wallace, where does reacquiring the world production record sit in the list of career highlights of a former Le Mans and Daytona winner?

“A lot of people will just say ‘You drove a Bugatti at 300 mph; whoever you put in it could have done that,’ and maybe that’s even true,” he said. “If you win at Le Mans or Daytona, then a lot more of what you were doing was down to the driver, I’m well aware of that. But when I think about it, it’s pretty bloody cool. If somebody said to me even two years ago that I was going to go over 300 mph, I’d have thought they were out of their mind.”

Wallace also noted one interesting side effect from the record setting. “I spent the next week after doing the run driving around really slowly and being quite happy; I was doing 10 or 15 mph under the speed limit everywhere.”
