And then it was done. The big three-hundred. Some 304.773 miles per hour, to be precise, has been hit by a not entirely standard production car, in the form of a modified Bugatti Chiron

A not quite standard Chiron, then, but pretty close. And it’ll be production soon enough, when the car becomes available as a multimillion-pound limited ‘record edition’ run of this more aerodynamic, more powerful Chiron. 

That’ll be sold in small numbers, granted, but there will probably be more of them than there are of any other car that might have a crack at a production car speed record.
