In July 2021, Radim Passer raced across the A2 in his Bugatti Chiron at 417 km/h.

He has now justified himself at Spiegel TV.

It was probably the most controversial YouTube video of the year: In April, Czech millionaire Radim Passer uploaded a clip in which he drove his Bugatti Chrion at 417 km/h on a German autobahn.

In the meantime, the clip has been clicked more than 14 million times (as of September 22nd).

The 58-year-old has now commented on his jaunt on

Spiegel

TV .

"Our research has shown that neither in the Czech Republic nor in Germany have we heard of a fatal accident caused by someone driving faster than 300 km/h," explained Passer.

In addition, concentration is at its maximum at such high speeds.

Great joy after the drive: Radim Passer raced in the Bugatti Chiron at 417 km/h on a German autobahn.

417 km/h on the Autobahn: Bugatti Raser justifies itself 

However, most serious accidents would happen at normal speeds "when people are tired or unfocused".

And the Bugatti Raser goes even further: "Far more people die in tourist activities, for example in the mountains."

The clip was created on July 4, 2021 - a Sunday - in the early morning hours on the A2 between Berlin and Hanover.

The day was deliberately chosen.

Because on a Sunday morning the traffic is the quietest and only a few trucks are on the road.

Passer also deliberately chose the motorway section: “You need a three-lane stretch with a good view of the motorway straight ahead.

The three-lane route must be at least ten kilometers long.

Because if you really cover more than a hundred meters per second, you need an extremely good overview of the motorway.”

417 km/h on the autobahn: record badge instead of penalty 

So the Czech billionaire doesn't seem to have a guilty conscience.

After all, he didn't do anything illegal, even if the public prosecutor's office in Nauenburg called the action "irresponsible and suicidal".

Bugatti Raser was not prosecuted for this.

On the contrary: Passer even got a badge for the sports car from Bugatti with the inscription: "First person to ever drive more than 415 km/h on a public motorway".

This now adorns the sports car.

And Matthias Malmedie also celebrated the 417 km/h journey on his YouTube channel.

After all, the billionaire did not break any laws and paid attention to security.

But Passer didn't want to trust that alone: ​​"We would never try something like this without praying first."
