    It's electronically limited to 420 and expected to run to about 463 if you let it loose. So yes it it not just seemingly willing. It can.

    When Chris Harris runs out of praise, you know it is an exceptionally good car.

    I have watched that video a few times, and the mind just boggles. Also, look at Montoya when he gets out of the car, you can see the amazement on his face.

    I will beat it on a 2 stage course. He chooses 1 and I choose the other 1.

    Fast yes, but can it offroad?

    But then the new AMG Project One is really stunning, more so than a Maclaren i think. 350km/h from a 1600motor, hell yeah!! Okay its a F1 with nice spandex tights

    The video looks like an add. Almost as if they did the test and then went back for the footage. Montoya in a crisp white shirt, no cables around, no camera shadows.
    Still, a spectacular Polo that.

    just watched it, wow! also noticed at the end of the video, small at the bottom of the screen, the consumption figures... but ja, if you can afford one of these then fuel consumption is not high on you list..

    Also, what car did they use for the pull away shots??

    The most amazing thing is that Chiron has this phenominal PROVEN performance and also has reliabillity, comfort, docillity, safetey, aircon and a beatifully crafted luxurious interior
    The new AMG1 boasts 1000hp. The chiron has 1103 killowatts or 1500hp. The Chiron has a current limited top speed of 420kph. The AMG1 claims more than 360kph.
    The Chiron is the pinnacle of automotive engineering. Nothing else comes close and we are fortunate to live in a time when such a masterpiece of automotive engineering was developed , is built and can be bought by a very few lucky people

    Seriously: You sum it up perfectly. Very soon we will likely see an electrical car that can go faster, but it will not be the same. The level of ingenuity is astounding. This might well be the pinnacle of internal combustion motoring.

    The revolution in propulsion technology reminds me of the conversion from truly mechanically operated machines devised in the industrial revolution to electronically controls of the 20th century. The mechanical machines had to be designed to do its task perfectly. Electronic control brought real time monitoring, observation and adjustment. It was definite progress, but made a lot of the detail mechanical design and manufacturing obsolete.

    The question in the intro to the Top Gear video was: "What would you do if you had a Chiron for a day?"

    My answer is easy - a short drive. Around the country.
