Back in 2017, the Bugatti Chiron managed to accelerate from 0-249 mph and then to a complete stop in a mere 41.96 seconds, setting a new speed record at the time. If you’ve ever wondered how they managed to capture this record-setting run, this video should explain things. It was directed by Al Clark, a specialist automotive film director, and yes, they had to use another Chiron. Read more for two videos and additional information.
For the stationary shots of the Chiron, the team used a modified Caterham Seven. One major challenge was to launch both Chirons simultaneously, while Clark added some camera shake effects to make the video look more dramatic, as the gimbal produced footage that was a little too smooth. One other issue was that the Chiron camera car’s exhaust gases caused the tracking shot to be out of focus, which you’ll see in the final video below.
