Bugatti Veyron Goes 246MPH on Idaho Highway

While the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is capable of hitting speeds over 267MPH, that’s only been achieved on closed tracks, such as Volkswagen’s expansive testing facility in Germany. And while there might be stretches of public highway which are long enough to hit such speeds, we don’t know of any place on the planet where those kind of speeds¬†would be legal. Even the Autobahn has speed limits in many locations. Recently, a long straightaway of Highway 75 in Ketchum, Idaho was shut down for the 2014 Sun Valley Road Rally, which allowed cars to be pushed to their upper limits.

One such car was this 1200 horsepower, quad-turbocharged Veyron Super Sport, which managed to turn in an impressive 246.4MPH along the stretch of I-75. This was just one of several Veyrons in attendance, and the only Super Sport Pur Blanc model ever made.

As the Veyron drives by, it sounds more like a fighter jet than a car.
