Each year, as summer peaks in Idaho’s Sun Valley, gear heads and exotic car owners transform a remote stretch of Highway 75 into an unrestricted test of top speed. For 2015, the Sun Valley Road Rally saw an unprecedented test of speed thanks to the brave owner of a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse L’Or Rouge.
In a video uploaded to his YouTube page on Sept. 19, TheStradman captured some incredible acceleration along with an inset of the speedometer. With a short rollout, the driver unleashes the fury of 16 cylinders and four turbochargers onto the closed course. Even with slight braking around 160 mph, the driver reached 231 mph faster than most cars can cover a quarter-mile. Check out the video for yourself above.
