This Ridiculous $2.6M Bugatti Chiron Is The World's Fastest Road Car

Bugatti officials say the supercar can accelerate from 0-60 mph in under 2.5 seconds and reach up to 261 mph on the road.

The Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland is always a spectacle for the fastest (and most expensive) supercars.

And this year was no different, thanks to the new $2.6 million Bugatti Chiron.

The supercar is limited to about 261 mph in road mode (because safety first).

At that speed, you could get from Los Angeles to Las Vegas (270 miles) in roughly an hour (instead of four).

Bugatti officials never said how fast the car could go after the limiters are turned off. The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport holds the Guinness World Record for fastest production car at 267.8 mph.

The 1,500-horsepower Chiron can go from 0-60 mph in under 2.5 seconds and 0-186 mph in 13.6 seconds or less.

Did we mention diamonds are in the speakers, too?
