Since first-ever auto mobile people endlessly been obsessed about the pace of a car, and even now “the fastest car in the world” is a label many car-makers try to own. With time the technology gets better, and this also helps better the cars we get. Therefore the best speed a car can travel is also improving. Today in the year 2020, there are many cars that try to get the label, but Bugatti Chiron is holding the title right now, but there is one problem. The Chiron was able to reach a speed of 490 km/h. But the car isn’t available to the public, so many car lovers don’t give the Chiron its due.
There are also other companies that claim the throne like Koenigsegg Agera or SSC. But technically The Chiron is the king of the speed cars.
Bugatti Chiron – World fastest car
The car has a 15 cylinder engine. The Chiron has a starting price of measly 3 million USD. The car can go from 0-400 km/h in below 42 secs because of it’s 1500 horspowers. Bugatti is famous for making fast and sports cars for over 100 years. Their own Veyron used to be the fastest car in the earth one time, but it only has 1000 horsepowers. From the outside, the Chiron is a very elegant looking car that gives a very posh look. The front of the car has the classic Bugatti look with headlights with square shape lights. The shape of the car is very aerodynamic to make it go fast. Another thing about the car is that it has large tyres with equally large brakes. The back fender of the car also allows a lot of air to come into the car to cool the car.
When we think about the way the Chiron work, it’s powered by fossil fuel, and there is a fuel cap in the side of the car. Also, there is an oil cap in the side of the car, and this is because you cant access the engine of the car. So the shape, tyres, brakes and the engine of the Chiron all make the car go fast.
Becoming the Fastest car in the world
In the year 2019, the Bugatti’s driver Andy Wallace became the first person in the world to break the 300mph barrier in a car. The record speed by the car was 490.48 km/h. You can watch the world record right here ( The record ).
The biggest challenge for the car to go at that speed is to make sure the car is grounded. Next is to make sure the brakes work perfectly to slow down the car. The Chiron was also able to go fro 0 km/h to 400 km/h and back to 0 km/h in 42 seconds which is a testament to the awesomeness of this car. You can watch the video here ( 0-400-0 ).
The problem’s with the fastest car
Even though the cars are able to go at a crazy speed, they can never be achieved by a normal driver on a normal road. Also, cars are only affordable to the few richest people in the world. And while the Car is technically the fastest car, the model that goes to 490 km/h isn’t available for public.
Although the Bugatti holds the title right now it is very likely that it is going to change in the future.
