Bugatti Chiron, Juan Pablo Montoya Set Fastest 0-400-0 km/h Time Ever

Bugatti, Chiron

In a perhaps fortuitous move Bugatti tapped acclaimed driver Juan Pablo Montoya to pilot their record setting Chiron run. Fortuitous in that the run was completed in 42 seconds, 42 being the number Montoya raced under for numerous seasons with Chip Ganassi’s NASCAR team.

The official time for the Chiron’s run from a dead stop to 249mph and back to zero was 41.96 seconds at a distance of 1.93 miles. And while this world record is an amazing feat for the limited production Chiron, the team at Bugatti is using it as a stepping stone for the run at the fastest production car record they have planned for next year.
