It’s quite challenging to drive such a wide car on narrow streets.
The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ isn’t really a city car, at over two metres (80 inches) wide. That hasn’t stopped the wealthy from flaunting it in the urban British jungle, where the boxy London taxi is the most frequent vehicle. One of the masters from Molsheim’s only 30 vehicles was spotted in the UK capital, seeming fast while standing still.
YouTuber TheTFJJ got the opportunity to immortalise the black beast among a number of high-end vehicles, including a Ferrari Testarossa and a Bentley Bentayga. The very same man with the camera caught a different SS 300+ a couple of months ago in London where the owner was pulled over for a missing front license plate. Quelle surprise, this one doesn’t have it either.
It belongs to a sheikh who also owns a Ferrari Monza SP2, a Lamborghini Sian & Centenario, and a Bugatti Divo, all of which you’d expect to see in a one-garage. percenter’s His speed machine is black with orange highlights, same like the other SS 330+ models, as an homage to the Veyron Super Sport, a former world record holder.
If you’re a stickler for regulations, the SS 300+ isn’t the fastest production car in the world. It was the first to break the 300-mph mark, although not in both directions. As a result, the Koenigsegg Agera RS retains its championship after averaging 277.87 mph (446.97 kph) in Nevada in November 2017. However, during the high-speed run, its absolute top speed was “only” 284.55 mph (457.94 km/h).
It’s worth noting that the 273 mph (440 km/h) production automobile that followed the 304 mph prototype is electronically limited. Those with the courage to tell Bugatti to remove the limitation and push the W16 to its limits on the Volkswagen Group’s Ehra-Lessien test circuit in Germany can do so. While doing a TÜV-certified 304.77 mph (490.48 km/h) on August 2, 2019, at the same Ehra-Lessien, Andy Wallace feels the long-tailed hypercar had more speed left in it.
Sooner or later, Koenigsegg, SSC North America, and Hennessey will all attempt to become the next speed kings. If we’re talking about top speed rather than the average of two runs in opposite directions, the Chiron Super Sport 300+ is the car to beat.
