Koenigsegg beats Bugatti's speed record

The Koenigsegg Agera RS Is Now the Fastest Production Car Ever Made

The Koenigsegg Agera RS Is Now the Fastest Production Car Ever Made

The two runs took place on Nevada's Route 160 between Las Vegas and Pahrump.

A Koenigsegg Agera RS driven by factory driver Niklas Lilja has recorded a 2-way avg speed of 444.6 km/h (277.9 mph).

Winslet got the ball rolling when she accepted the Hollywood Actress Award for her performance in " Wonder Wheel ". I spent a year and a half with him before we started shooting this film and he's still my friend", the actor said.

The Guinness World Record for the highest top speed in a production auto is still held by Bugatti and its Veyron Super Sport, with 267.8mph, but this latest run proves Koenigsegg has the machinery to challenge that. Also driving the Agera RS, they recently broke the 0-400kph-0 record set just weeks earlier by Bugatti's Chiron. The return run at 284.6 miles per hour simply left the Hennessey and every other vehicle ever made in the desert dust. In total, Lilja went for 7 top speed runs and went from 0-400 kph-0 three times.

Niklas Lilja was behind the wheel when the auto reached the speed on a public road in Nevada, which had been closed for the attempt. For now the Agera RS holds the world production speed record. The Koenigsegg reportedly ran standard Michelin Pilot Cup 2s. How long the mark will stand for, however, is anyone's guess with Henessey having just unveiled its new Venom F5 hypercar amid claims of 300mph capability and Bugatti having yet to put the Chiron to the test in anger.
