Driving A Bugatti Chiron Through A Drive-Thru Is Even Harder Than You Might Expect

Driving A Bugatti Chiron Through A Drive-Thru Is Even Harder Than You Might Expect

The process of ordering some small fries at a Mcdonalds’ drive-thru in France turns out to be as difficult as it is sacrilegious thanks to the addition of a Bugatti. An insult to both the nation’s proud history of fancy food and its fancier cars, the test does actually reveal something about the “daily struggle” of driving a supercar.

The trial is conducted by Carwow and involves nothing more than the driving of a Bugatti Chiron Super Sport through a fast-food drive-thru lane. The tension and stakes, though, are raised up to 11 by the car’s unsuitability to the task (along with some action movie-style suspense music).

Host Mat Watson is helped through it by (I believe) Andy Wallace, a Bugatti test driver and former Le Mans winner. The host requires more direction through the drive-thru, though, than he does through some of his channel’s off-roading videos. You can thank the Chiron’s prodigious width and the frighteningly enormous costs related to even a minor amount of damage.

Once he’s required to pay, Watson must open the door and extend his body out as far as he can in order to reach the debit machine, made inaccessible by his distance from the curb (don’t want to scratch a wheel!) and the small size of the window.

Watson is playing it for laughs and could be accused of amping up some of the drama for entertainment but the video does remind me of something that Jason Cammisa once said in his video discussing the Ferrari Roma.

“Back in the day when almost all cars sucked, GT was code for a car that didn’t suck,” he said. “By definition, in a Gran Turismo, you’d be able to cruise comfortably at the speed limit across an entire continent without it breaking down, overheating, or being unduly miserable […] that describes literally every car made today.”

Well, it describes almost every car made today. Supercars, the new playthings for the ultra-rich, are fond of catching fire, can get you in a lot of trouble even when you think you’re following the speed limit to the letter of the law, and will make you unduly miserable when doing something that literally any other car could do comfortably.

I suppose that’s why Bugatti has its own restaurant.
