Celebrities are hardly a foreign sight in or around expensive supercars, and many celebs make it a point to collect the best exotic cars from around the world. Some celebrities, such as Jay Leno, can be classified as car historians of sorts, collecting a wide array of the best and most iconic cars from different eras. When it comes to pure, unadulterated speed, however, few can challenge Afrojack’s record-breaking supercars.
The Dutch EDM DJ, who most recently held a residency at the Hakkasan nightclub at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, is no stranger to fast cars. A proud owner of a Rolls Royce, a Lamborghini Aventador, and a Bugatti Veyron, Afrojack, who was born Nick van de Wall, decided to go ahead and add the new Bugatti Chiron to his illustrious collection. Bugatti already held the record for the fastest production car in the world with their acclaimed Veyron, capable of hitting 268 miles per hour. The French manufacturers, not satisfied with their record, went ahead and outdid themselves with their highly anticipated follow-up, the Bugatti Chiron, which is reportedly capable of speeds up to 290 miles per hour. With speeds like this, it comes as no surprise that Afrojack felt so compelled to add the Chiron to his collection.
The problem with owning a car this powerful is you really need to find a track that gives you the opportunity to let loose and push that exotic car to its limits. What’s the solution to this problem?
