In 2015, Passer managed 402.5 km/h with his Veyron
The first attempt on an early morning in April 2011 failed due to low temperatures, which disrupted the tire pressure sensors. The result: the Veyron’s top speed mode was not released. Just a year later, Passer returned to Wittenberg with his Veyron, but this time a gearbox problem stopped him. However, giving up was out of the question for the Czech! Three years later the third attempt – bingo! in the May 2015 he was able to finally breaking the 400 km/h mark. The meter showed incredible 402.5km/h on. World record at that time for a top speed achieved on public roads. But Passer wanted more!
Chiron checked – Bugatti gives his okay
In addition to meticulous preparation, the project requires an early start. Sunday morning at 3:55 a.m., Passer sets off with his team and a few friends. The actual high-speed run starts at 4:50 a.m. after the high-speed key of the Chiron has been turned while stationary. The recently uploaded video shows the ride uncut from start to finish.
