While the Bugatti Chiron has not been formally demonstrated its performance and made the Veyron still as the car with fastest acceleration. The status want to be captured by Elemental RP1, or at least equaled.

Elemental had an opportunity to test the ability of RP1, with a record of acceleration 0-100 km/h in 2.7 seconds, while the target is 2.5 seconds. As said by Elemental, that testing in conditions not ideal took place on the Longcross test tracks, Surrey, England.

"We do not have professional drivers, the tires were worn and dirty running surface," said John Begley, technical director of Elemental. 

"Data shows that the car can still be much better, but to be honest we did not make up time on the straights track," he said further.

Achievement of acceleration at 2.7 seconds was achieved thanks to the bursts of power from the engine of 280 hp, as well as supported by Launch Control system, as the development results of the Elemental its own. The Elemental RP1 has a weighs of 750 kg, the result of the application of innovative carbon fiber and aluminum in the chassis.

"Glad to know we are blusterous, but our focus is on developing a fun car to be driven," said Begley.
When viewed in terms of price between the RP1 and the Veyron was inversely away, where the RP1 is sold for less than £100,000 (Rp. 1.730 billion) while the Veyron reaches around £850,000 (Rp. 14.702 billion) before taxes and has recently been replaced by the £2 million Chiron (Rp. 34.6 billion). *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCESELEMENTALAUTOCAR]
