Bugatti Chiron tops 300mph as company looks to leave the speed record game

Bugatti has sent a modified Chiron where no near-production car has gone before, topping 300mph (482.8km/h) at the recently-resurfaced Ehra-Lessien test track. The company says its 300mph run spells the end of its obsession with top speed, having "shown several times that we build the fastest cars in the world".

The One will likely be beaten to production by the rival Valkyrie from Aston Martin, in which Mercedes' parent Daimler AG has a 5.0 per cent stake.

It'll cost £250,000 ($440,000) to secure a build slot, and the total price is £1.7 million – equivalent to around $3 million.

Lotus planning electric hypercar - report

Lotus is planning to launch a £2 million ($3.53 million) pure-electric hypercar, according to new reports from Europe. According to coverage from Autocar, the flagship will be built in incredibly limited numbers, and serve to demonstrate owner Geely's technical prowess to the world. Details are hard to come by, with the report arguing the hypercar project is "shrouded in secrecy" at Lotus HQ, but speculates the car will use a bespoke electric powertrain, and carries the codename Omega.
