The Bugatti Chiron has set the world record for a production car: going from zero to 400 km/h to zero in 42 seconds.

With no new cars to show at the IAA (Frankfurt Motor Show) this year, Bugatti had a special treat: a new record for their latest revelation, the Chiron hypercar. In the hands of former Formula 1 driver Juan Pablo Montoya back on 6 August at Ehra-Lessien, the Bugatti Chiron was accelerated from standstill to 400 km/h and braked hard back to zero in 41.96 seconds, over just 3,112 metres. The acceleration run took 32.6 seconds and 2,621 metres, with braking taking 9.3 seconds and 491 metres.
