Driving reviews of the $2.5 million Bugatti Chiron supercar are starting to pop up, and Richard Meaden, a former race driver, recently drove the Chiron for Evo in the UK, praising its combination of "civility and savagery."

But what fascinated us was the video, large portions of which are simply a view of the speedometer as the Chiron rockets to 351 kph (or 218 mph) in less than 30 seconds. We can only hope that run wasn’t on the idyllic English country road glimpsed in the opening and closing shots. The video is mesmerizing to watch. Enjoy.
