ACB: Koenigsegg Agera World Record Run

The 940 horsepower Koenigsegg Agera just set a Guiness World Record for the quickest 0-300-0 km/h time ever. It managed to go from a stop, to nearly 200mph and then to a dead stop again in 21.19 seconds. This means that it takes longer to type the car’s name than it takes to go to go 200mph. Ludicrous speed on display in the video above.

  

Fast and Furious Koenigsegg Agera R Sets New 0-200 MPH World Record

From AutoGuide.com:

The Jet race seems to be over. There are no passenger planes as fast as the Concorde anymore, and there are no military jets as fast as the SR-71 Blackbird anymore either.

Thankfully, on tarmac, the speed race is still on. Ever since the Ferrari F40 broke past the 200-mph barrier for a production car, supercars have been getting faster and quicker. The current king in the top speed game is the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, which has hit 268-mph.

But Swedish supercar maker Koenigsegg has other goals on its mind, like acceleration and deceleration figures. In pursuit of that, Koenigsegg took its latest car, the Agera R for some acceleration runs.

The results (which are yet to be confirmed by the Guinness Book of World Records) are quite astonishing. The Agera R went from 0-186 mph (0-300 km/h) in just 14.53 seconds and then came to a complete stop just 6.66 seconds later (a devilishly good time don’t you think). In comparison, the Veyron SS takes 16.7 seconds to hit 186 mph from a standing start.
