What does it take to set a world legal speed record on the Autobahn? Part of self-confidence – of course! A fast car that you can easily afford with a few billions in the bank. And certainly a touch of courage is not too light. When you travel at 417 km/h from Berlin to Hanover, you really can’t go wrong. This is the crazy story of Radim Passer, one of the richest Czechs ever, a car enthusiast and a lover.
With the strongest one he has in his garage, he broke the speed record last summer, which he previously held. In the Bugatti Chiron Sport, he drove a section of the German motorway A2 between Berlin and Hanover in normal traffic at 417 km/h.

The world record as seen by the Bugatti Chiron’s onboard camera
The billionaire released a Bugatti Chiron Sport Speed test video last November, and it racked up nearly a million views on YouTube. In January, he posted a video from the camera on his channel, backed up by speedometer and GPS data.
“A lot of people asked us to share unedited camera footage from the car, so we did. We hope you enjoyed the ride – this time from a different perspective,” Radim Basser wrote in the video caption. The video has been watched by more than 1.7 million users so far.

The trip took place in July of last year on the section of the A2 motorway near Zisar. There are three wide lanes next to each other, and the approximately ten kilometer section is almost straight and slightly sloping, so you can see well ahead. The time is also carefully chosen. At 4.50 am in summer it is light enough for good visibility but not crowded on the road yet.

Bugatti Chiron accelerates from 200 to 300 km / h in less than 10 seconds
And his expensive car (three million euros, 1,500 hp) is exploding like the famous Schmidt cat. It takes less than ten seconds to accelerate from 200 to 300 km / h. While the speedometer shows a top speed of 414 km/h according to GPS, the real speed is 3 km higher, at 417 km/h. The world record for driving on public roads!
