You don’t need to simply trust us. Bugatti test driver Andy Wallace, who famously set a 240 mph speed record in a McLaren F1, broke the news to Popular Mechanics.

“The valve top on each wheel weighs 2.5 grams, however, it likens to 16 pounds at 261 mph. As the speed moves much higher, the heaps increment exponentially.”

According to Wallace, Michelin is creating tire innovation for the Chiron that will enable it to surpass 280 mph. However, the Bugatti Chiron Needs Tires That Don’t Exist Yet To Hit 300+mph.

Finally, Bugatti will release Chiron top speed next year. It will demonstrate what it’s able to do. However, the hypercar’s actual potential will most likely remain a mystery until tire technology gets up to speed.
