He drove at the highest speed ever recorded on a public highway, and now he’s done it again.
Radim Passer tried three times to achieve the top speed of his Bugatti Veyron on the Autobahn, and in 2015, he reached 250 miles per hour, which was the highest speed ever recorded on a public highway at that time. Bugatti themselves called to congratulate him on breaking this speed record. His incredible feat comes after two failed attempts due to weather and an issue with the transmission, but even after such a triumph, he didn’t stop there.
When Bugatti released the Chiron, Radim knew that he wanted to test that car as well, and six years after his visit to Wittenberg, Germany to test the Veyron on the Autobahn and reach 250 miles per hour, he braved the highway again with the newer, faster Chiron.
The test was only able to happen after the Chiron was sent back to its birthplace, the Molsheim Atelier in Alsace, France, so that Bugatti and their Atelier experts could make sure that the Chiron would be in perfect shape to reach speeds over 250 miles per hour on the Autobahn, and when they gave Radim Passer the green light, he pushed the Chiron to its absolute limits, reaching 257 miles per hour on the Autobahn.
