According to Jay Leno, new technology begins on the most expensive vehicles, and eventually works its way down. Yet it may take a while before the standard compact car can match the marvels of the 2017 Bugatti Chiron.
The Chiron is a $2.9 million, 1,500 horsepower supercar that can go from zero to 249 mph in about 30 seconds, and Jay Leno was lucky enough to take the technological tour de force out for a spin. Joining him was Jessi Combs, aka the "Fastest Woman on Four Wheels."
In 2013 Combs clocked an average speed of almost 392 MPH in a 1 mile stretch in the Oregon desert, cementing her place in history.
