Koenigsegg Have Done It! 278MPH!

There is a new world record holder for the fastest production car!

3y ago

277.9MPH; I guess no one is going to forget these numbers for a long time. It is the average top speed set by Koenigsegg Agera RS during two runs with the speed verified by Race Logic.

Koenigsegg along with the help of Nevada Police Department managed to set this new record. A stretch of 11 mile in Pahrump, NV in USA was shut down for Koenigsegg to achieve this world record.

The car was piloted by a brave man called Niklas Lilja who happens to be the factory driver of Koenigsegg. Word is being spread around that he managed to top out at 285 mph during one of the runs. But there has to be another run in the opposite direction to make it count and that's why the final average is down to 277.9 mph (444.64 kmph).

This record is almost 10mph more than the previous record held by the Bugatti Veyron SuperSport.

A detailed story about this feat will be published soon by Koenigsegg. Until then, this news is worthy of a celebration. Now your turn Bugatti!

    • Hennessey!?, right, with what will they do it, they do not even make their own car, let alone do anything they say, STFU cause Königsegg has one more thing up the sleeve, called 1600 bhp Regera, that was never tested!!

  • It would be wayyyy cooler if you could add a conversion in km/h in your articles. Yeah I know I can Google it but come on you can do it too, thanks :)

  • Still waiting on one:1

    • I think they choose the Agera RS cause the one:1 was only produced 6x and I don't think that's enough for the title of the fastest production car, but if you look at this the one should definitely top 300 mph and hopefully even the magical 500...
