Mumbai: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan is all set to drive world’s fastest car – Volkswagen Bugatti in his forthcoming film ‘Ra.One’.

News has it that a team of technicians from ‘The Pirates of the Carribean’ will teach Shah Rukh to drive Bugatti – an ultimate dream machine and the world’s fastest production car.

In order to master the mean machine, Shah Rukh will be taking special lessons for driving the speed demon.

Talking to a news daily, a source from the film said, “A team of technicians from ‘The Pirates Of The Caribbean’ crew is being flown down to teach Shah Rukh how to drive the car with ease. When you are zipping at a top speed of 407 kilometres per hour, your mind cannot afford to drift. Your concentration needs to be at its best.”

Touted as SRK’s most ambitious project, ‘Ra.One’ is the abridged version for ‘Random Access Version One’ where Shah Rukh plays a superhero and drives the fastest car. It is believed that Shah Rukh will perform several stunts while driving Bugatti.

At present, SRK is busy holidaying with his family, as the source added, “He will be taking his family to South Africa for the FIFA final. From there, he plans to go straight to London for the next schedule of ‘Ra.One.’ It is in this schedule that most of the portions using the Volkswagen Bugatti would be shot. As soon as he reaches London, the experts will commence the driving lessons.”
