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
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.
