Bugatti showed off the results it got from a specially modified Bugatti Chiron.
The company said the car went 304.8 mph during a high-speed run on a German test track, setting a record for a car not built for extremely high speeds.
This was not the standard Chiron you can from the Bugatti factory for $3 million.
This version has a modified car body and specially developed tires that Italian race car manufacturer Dallara helped develop.
The standard Bugatti Chiron isn’t exactly slow – it can top out at around 261 miles an hour.
