Koenigsegg and their Agera RS is the talk of the town at the moment after it became the fastest production car in the world on the weekend but that wasn’t the only record they broke.
While they had the immaculate piece of tarmac in Nevada this weekend, they decided to give that attempt another go and they obliterated their already impressive record by doing the same task in 33.29 seconds. This new record time is a whopping 20% faster than what Bugatti could achieve.
The crazy thing about the creations from the Swedish manufacturer is that the Regera model is expected to be even faster as they think it will complete 0 to 400 km/h in just 20 seconds (4 seconds quicker than the Agera RS).
On the 4th of November, the Koenigsegg Agera RS captured FIVE world records;
