Bugatti Chiron – all about the vehicle with which the Czech tycoon literally “flew” driving 410km/h on highway
A Czech millionaire has been criticized by the German Ministry of Transport after a video of him traveling over 400 km / h on a section of the highway without speed limit went viral. Radim Passer, who according to Forbes is the 33rd richest a Czech citizen, posted a three-minute video on YouTube on January 9th.
In it, he “treads” a multi-million dollar supercar to incredible speeds along the section of the A2 motorway between Berlin and Hanover, accelerating rapidly between 200 km / h and 300 km / h and passing several vehicles, including one while traveling over 410 km / h.
The video has over 4.5 million views on YouTube so far. However, according to the Associated Press, the German transport authorities were not impressed at all. the traffic must behave in such a way that no other person is injured, endangered or obstructed or suffers more discomfort than is inevitable under the circumstances ”.
Double-speeding on the highway and “lashing” in two lanes endangered other road users, but Passer acted as if he believed he was being protected by supernatural powers.
Bugatti is selling the new version of its Bugatti Chiron supercar, which breaks records for a fantastic 3.2 million euros. The body of the Chiron Super Sport is styled according to the test car for breaking the speed barrier at 300 miles per hour (483 km / h) and has a long tail that is extended by 10 inches.
As always, the Chiron is powered by an 8.0-liter W16 with four turbochargers, which here produces 1,577 horsepower and 1,180 pound-feet of torque. Several upgrades have been made to the old version, resulting in an increased red line of 7,100 rpm. The seventh gear is also made higher, for a higher maximum speed.
