Bugatti Chiron Goes From 0 To 249 MPH Back To 0 In A World Record 42 Seconds

Submitted by: fancylad 2 months ago in Tech


This is the closes thing to the Batmobile we have. Slap a few machine guns and an ejector seat on this thing and stand back.

I need more than 42 seconds only to start my Volvo.

So that's what Montoya's been up to lately.

That'd be fantastic for when you want to get 3.1km away in a hurry!

That is pretty awesome, but damn that is an ugly car, I just don't like the side foils and nose at all.  Super impressive though.

This is a work of engineering genius to pull this off.

I dont need a car that fast, but I would own one and be proud of it - purely for the engineering numbers and statistics it smashes.

And I would probably try to clock 400kph myself. If I could own this, I could rent the Ehra-Lessien track for a day to do it!

I liked this video. Very much. This would totally work as the next Batmobile in a slightly more down-to-Earth Batman movie.

Have you ever noticed that these superhero movies are WAY better when the superheroes are not so ridiculously powerful? Why the heck can't Hollywood get it through its thick skull that a Peter Parker, say, who has somewhat limited powers is much more interesting to watch than some superhero who has the power of 40 zillion hydrogen bombs at his disposal?

The original Iron Man, for example--when he's figuring out how to make his suit out of all sorts of scraps of junk? And has a number of accidents in the process? That was soooo good. Amiright? So why not a Batman who is, yes, super rich and can afford one of these cars--but still has to deal with a late delivery and an occasional factory recall? That would be so epic.

squrlz4ever Agreed. Never really liked Superman, just too powerful.  Always wondered how he made it through the day to day without destroying everything he touched.  His farts would topple a semi trailer.

abetterworld Thank you! Someone who gets it. I feel much less alone in the world now. I'm still a talking squirrel, which is kinda lonely in and of itself, what with the whole existential angst that comes with self-awareness and higher thought, but this helps.

squrlz4ever If you ever feel lonely, watch some Rocky & Bullwinkle.  You might find a talking squirrel in there somewhere.

Assuming you have a few mil to waste on this, its a reasonable guess that you could afford a few more mill to buy some land to drive this thing on at that speed.

The idea of hitting a pothole and getting 500k worth of damage is a bit too much for me.

The STARTING price is 2.6 mil (not including tax and delivery), but what kinda broke ass pauper would get this thing and not get it loaded?

Just what we need, more people going 4x the speed limit and killing innocent people.  This literally has no practical use and is 100% ego.

monkwarrior I'm not arguing it isn't excessive (It is),  but perhaps it is for someplace like the autobahn that has no legal speed limit?  And having that much acceleration would be nice while merging onto highways.

monkwarrior And?  Since when are consumable goods (especially luxury goods) required to have a practical use ?

Don't buy one, and lets hope that the cops that do ticket this driver raise sufficient funds so that they feel they don't have to pull over us punters doing 5 over the limit.
