Back in 2015, the Koenigsegg One:1 broke a world record by going 0-300-0 km/h (186 mph) in just 17.95 seconds. This was an absolutely absurd record that was shocking to read. Now, two years later, the news is getting out about the Bugatti Chiron’s ability to speed up and come back to a complete stop in an insane amount of time.
Dan Prosser of EVO recently had dinner with Wolfgang Durheimer, Bentley and Bugatti’s boss. It was during this meal that Durheimer remarked that the Chiron will accelerate from 0-250-0 mph in under 60 seconds.
Had dinner with Bentley and Bugatti boss Wolfgang Durheimer on Monday. He told me the Chiron does 0-250mph-0 in sub 60 seconds.

Road and Track reported on this fact on Feb. 15, and were then told by a Bugatti spokesperson that “this figure isn’t official as it hasn’t been measured yet.” That being said, it’s tough to go against the word of the head honcho himself.
