Bugatti Chiron will do 0-249mph and back to zero in 42 seconds

Staff writer

The Bugatti Chiron's predecessor, the Veyron Super Sport, still holds the record as the world's fastest production car. Eventually, Bugatti expects the Chiron to take the record, but in the meantime, it's shown off the performance capabilities of the new car with a short video.

The footage shows a staggering feat of acceleration, as the Chiron shoots off from a standstill to 249mph in just 32.6 seconds. For reference, that's about the same time a Mazda MX-5 takes to accelerate to 100mph. Behind the wheel for this speed test was F1 and IndyCar driver Juan Pablo Montoya.
