The Koenigsegg Agera R sets records and makes the Veyron look slow

Six world records for the Swedes.

It was once safe to say that the Bugatti Veyron is the quickest production car in the world. The quad-turbocharged W-16 pushing a mind-boggling 1,001 horsepower held on to that trophy for quite some time, that is, until Christian von Koenigsegg introduced the Koenigsegg Agera R.

On a partially cloudy day with a calm side wind, Koenigsegg and a third party arrived at a completely empty, flat racetrack ready to witness a broken record. Armed with a twin-supercharged 1,115 horsepower 5.0-liter V-8 and packing a Racelogic Vbox performance recorder, the Agera R showcased what it’s really made of.

In all, the Koenigsegg Agera R set six production car World Records that were collected and verified by a third party. Here are the six Agera R acceleration and braking records:

0-300 km/h (0-186.41 mph) = 14.53 sec
0-200 mp/h (0-124.27 mph) = 17.68 sec
300-0 km/h (186.41-0 mph) = 6.66 sec
200-0 mp/h (124.27-0 mph) = 7.28 sec
0-300-0 km/h (0-186.41-0 mph) = 21.19 sec
0-200-0 mp/h (0- 124.27-0 mph) = 24.96 sec
(Per Koenigsegg)

The results will be submitted to Guinness World Records. The record-setting Koenigsegg Agera R will be featured at the Singapore Grand Prix FIA Formula One Championship, and be the first Agera R in Singapore.
