The Bugatti Chiron is an extremely fast machine. And his fulgurating acceleration goes hand in hand. However, a new drag-times video shows us that it’s not so easy to use all of this power and performance potential.
On the road, but with the truck, the Chiron starts some tests, especially in terms of take-off control, which will theoretically allow him a departure canon. Unfortunately, problems arise when the driver tries to use it on the track. The supercar then leaves the line and struggles to reach 80 km / h.
For the next round the team gives the start clearance without start control or traction control. The results are only a little better. The Chiron runs during the passage in second gear. When the tires get caught again, the shock is enough to drop the telemetry box from the dashboard mount to the passenger seat. The Hypercar still manages to cover the quarter mile (about 402 meters) in 11.09 seconds.
In the third round things finally take shape. The launch control is ready and it only takes 9.9 seconds for Chiron to cover the 1/4 mile. However, the tires still seem to slip a bit.
Drag Times People think it’s possible to do something better, but only once will they better understand the variety of driving patterns and hypercar settings. A Dodge Challenger SRT Demon with a set of flat tires can cover the quarter mile in 9.83 seconds. It is expected that the Bugatti, who is much more powerful, beats the American muscle car without any problems!
