That is about to change now as it has just set the the fastest 0-400km/h run for a production car with a timing of 32.6 seconds.

According to Bugatti, it is the fastest time ever reached and officially measured for this driving maneuver for a production vehicle throughout the world and represents "the first step on the way to a new world speed record for production vehicles". An official run for the hypercar's top speed is said to happen in 2018.
