That’s how fast the new Bugatti Chiron is. Jon Gitlin in ARS:
When it comes to the vital statistics of a modern hypercar, surely none have as little relevance as its top speed. You can make use of a sub three-second 0-60mph time in most parts of the world without causing a ruckus—just find the nearest toll booth on a highway.
That’s about the only place where it works without getting a ticket. What about top speed?
The Chiron in question was subtly modified from standard, in this case fitted with an uprated safety cell, an aerodynamic bodykit, an engine that was massaged to deliver 1,578hp (1,177kW), and a set of specially made Michelin Pilot Cup 2s that the French tire company built to withstand the stresses of rotating 4,100 times a minute.
304.773-mph to be exact.
