At the wheel of the Chiron was racing driver and former Formula 1 star Juan Pablo Montoya and following the record run, the Colombian said: "When you are driving the Chiron for the first time and taking it easy, you can not imagine how powerful it is. And its braking is at least as impressive", he said.

With an 8-litre engine developing nearly 1,500bhp, the Bugatti Chiron is one of the most impressive hypercars ever built. "Just like we did with the Chiron", said Wolfgang Dürheimer, president of Bugatti.

The large 15.7 inch ceramic disc help it brake, while working in conjunction with the massive rear wing, which acts as an air brake when deployed. Within less than a second, the car's rear axle found itself with almost a ton of extra downforce. Montoya chose not to wear protective clothing, including a helmet, during the record run.

Disney World Sustains Minor Irma Damage, Reopens Tuesday
Photos and videos surfaced online of trees knocked down at Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park and the Polynesian Resort. And taking a glance at the aftermath of Irma at Disney World, it's a good thing all the parks are closed .

"Of course, the Chiron is a super sports vehicle that requires your full attention when you are behind the wheel", said Montoya. "At the same time, it gave me such a feeling of security and reliability that I was entirely relaxed and really enjoyed myself during my two days with the vehicle". "With the Chiron, it was all quite easy". This enormous power allows the hypercar to complete the sprint from 0-60mph in just 2.4 seconds, while 0-190mph takes 13.6 seconds. "Just get in and drive off. Incredible". In order to do that, the Chiron would have to breach the 268 miles per hour (431 km/h) mark.

He's now hopeful of Bugatti allowing him to set the Chiron's official top speed, a test scheduled for 2018. This world record run was the first step to finding out what the limit of this vehicle is and the French brand will do a top speed test next year.

Note that Montoya took advantage of it to drive at 420 km / h (ie the maximum speed limit of the Chiron ), history to improve its own personal record. If tire technologies reach a point where the Chiron can truly stretch its legs, we may see Montoya behind the wheel of the hypercar once again.
