Bugatti's $2.6 million Chiron is the new fastest car in the world
Geege Schuman stashed this in Auto Erotica
Along with two-stage turbocharging (a new Bugatti development), the Chiron's W16 produces 1,500 horsepower and 1,180 pound-feet of torque. That, along with a very stout all-wheel drive system, allows it to go 0 to 62 mph in 2.5 seconds, and on to a limited top speed (it could do more) of 261 mph (although the speedo goes up to 310 mph). To put that into perspective, a 747 lifts off the ground at 180 mph.
261 mph?! Where can a person legally drive 261 mph???
Good answer, Geege.
