The Bugatti Chiron at the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2016 – On Track + Drivers Parade
The Bugatti Chiron celebrated its debut in France at the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2016 – the venue where the French super sports car brand once celebrated two of the greatest racing triumphs in its history, in 1937 and 1939. In honour of this legendary endurance race, Bugatti sent the Chiron to the “Circuit des 24 Heures” to complete a parade lap just before the start of the race with more than 250,000 spectators watching. Behind the wheel of the world’s most powerful, fastest, most exclusive and most luxurious production super sports car was Wolfgang Dürheimer, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. The Chiron reached a speed of almost 380 kph (236 mph) and was as a result faster than the fastest race car of the weekend. The day before, the 1,500 PS supercar excited thousands of racing fans at the drivers parade through Le Mans.
