A Bugatti went 305 miles per hour. That’s a record

Bugatti has done it.

This is impressive, the record was set on the 2nd of August and there have been a number of modifications to the Chiron to help it achieve this.

Another day, another speed milestone erased by Bugatti, with a modified Chiron topping the once-unimaginable 300mph marker. There's a long tail to aid high speed stability, and a new, fixed rear wing to replace the active version (which doubles as an air brake). This Bugatti Chiron is described as a near production prototype. Secondly, this is an undeniable a statement of intent for Bugatti, and whether the manufacturer has admitted it or not, looks likely to result in a production Super Sport Chiron. Some luxuries have been removed for the sake of weight reduction. Top Gear broke the news on Monday, confirming Bugatti test driver Andy Wallace reached a v-max of 304.77 miles per hour on the Volkswagen Group's Ehra-Lessien test track in Germany.

The top speed has been verified by the TÜV, which is Germany's Technical Inspection Association.

There's been a good reason for Bugatti's hesitation to let the Chiron run unrestricted, namely the lack of a production tyre able to carry those speeds. One other change is the adoption of a laser-controlled ride height to make the automatically adjustable suspension reduce the amount of drag furthermore.

Bugatti's President, Stephen Winkelmann in an interview to Top Gear said that it will be last record chased by the company. "I would like to thank the whole team and driver Andy Wallace for this outstanding performance". Like the Veyron before it, the Chiron has become the first standard, road-legal vehicle to smash clean through what was previously thought an impossible landmark figure. Since the auto isn't technically a production-spec vehicle, it doesn't take the crown as the fastest production auto in the world.
