Let’s talk about the test drive!

Dubai used car

The first test drive for the car was done by a factory driver in Nevada. The speed was calculated by an average of two runs in two directions. The speed that was achieved was 278 mph; the highest top speed achieved for a production car!

The reason why Nevada was chosen was because it is one of the few roads in the world where a speed of 278 mph can be achieved.

The north-western run, from Las Vegas to the Pahrump highway was achieved in a speed of 284 mph, whereas the south-western run was done in a top speed of 271 mph.

The top speed

The average top speed was calculated to be 278 mph; the average of the two speeds in two directions. The previous world record for the highest record was held by Bugatti Chiron which claimed a top speed of 267 mph.

Anyone who owns a new or Dubai used car knows that a car is more than just stats or numbers, yet few of us can let go of the bragging rights when it comes to thrilling specs!
