Record for Koenigsegg Agera RS
Subscriptions & booklets

These are the weeks of records for Koenigsegg. On October 1st the K oenigsegg Agera RS first sprinted from standstill to 400 km /h, in order to then come to standstill as quickly as possible. The Swedish super sports car mastered the task in 36.44 seconds. Five and a half seconds faster than the Bugatti Chiron, which completed the 0-400-0 km /h test in 41.96 seconds.

The Agera RS covered a distance of 1,958 meters in 26.88 seconds. The 1,176 hp (865 kW) super sports car completed the braking process in 9.56 seconds after 483 meters. Koenigsegg works driver Niklas Lilja drove the Agera RS. As with the second world record.

New record on a closed highway

This time the Agera RS had to play out different qualities. Koenigsegg was aiming for a new record for top speed. Bugatti had held that up until then, too. The Veyron Super Sports ran 431 km /h. That was 2010. In the meantime, the Hennessey Venom GT even managed 435.31 km /h. The drive was criticized as an unofficial record because Hennessey had not built 30 copies of his sports car. And because you had only traveled one distance. Not so Koenigsegg.

A YouTube video shows how the Agera RS covers two distances on a cordoned off highway near Pahrump /Nevada. Once at 271.2 mph or 436.45 km /h. The other time with 284.3 mph or 457.53 km /h. Whereby the Swedes speak of 458 km /h after the data analysis.

The Koenigsegg reached a top speed of 277.9 mph or 447, 23 km /h.

Taken together, that makes a top speed of 277.9 mph or 447.23 km /h. The way there and back is necessary for such a record attempt in order to compensate for height differences and changing winds. There should have been an hour between the two trips. The video shows that works driver Lilja slowly pushed the Agera RS to its limit. From 170 km /h he steps on the gas a little harder before the super sports car is allowed to escalate completely from 300 km /h.

Even at Koenigsegg, the Guinness Book employees did not check. The new record for top speed was determined by Racelogic. As with Hennessey back then. Koenigsegg is building the super sports car with a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 in an edition of 25. The production process is still running. However, all copies have been sold.

Two records within a few weeks. It couldn't have been the last. It's no secret that Koenigsegg is also striving for a record on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife. The first attempt went terribly wrong. At that time, a One: 1 crashed in the Green Hell. It would not be surprising if Koenigsegg took the next attempt with an Agera RS.
