    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!

    • You will see Bugatti will destroy both records Koenigsegg has set

      even if Chiron weighs more than 2000 kg its engine can easily pull up more than 450 kph

    • Still Koenigsegg is a Kitcar comparing to a Bugatti to be Honest. Thats why way more rich people buy a Bugatti and not a Koenigsegg. They are unreliable and depreciate like hell (Mayweather car here just a sample. Even with a VIP Owner it droppped from 4,8 to 2,6 Millions meanwhile other Hypercars (McLaren P1, LaFerrari, Porsche 918) get higher in Value or drop way less (Bugatti) ). If someone has an idea about Engieering he would never choose the Koenigsegg over a Bugatti. In everyday use and not ideal circumstances a Bugatti is way better and there is even a whole class between the cars driving them. A Koenigsegg can reach Topspeed and a Bugatti can drive at Top Speeds.

    • for what i know they beat there's previous record for the 0-400-0. Koenigsegg did it this time in around 33 second Vs 36 second before.

    • The architecture of the Veyron/Chiron engine is such that it can easily have substantial increases in power added, with comparatively little effort. They don’t have it making the kind of numbers it could be making, mainly because they don’t need to. Should they decide they want to though... it will be the fastest platform of the three in terms of top speed (with little effort), if not also the title of quickest.

      • Could the same not be said for Keonigsegg didn,t the CCR/X come off the line approx 780 bhp, and with very little tuning post it eating a tyre on the TG track put out 1000 or close to it,...Read more

      • This specific car is modded though. Your average Agera RS doesn't produce 1360hp
