Koenigsegg Agera R claims six world records

Koenigsegg Agera R

The Koenigsegg Agera R hardly needs to prove to anyone that it’s a bloody fast car. A quick glance over its key stats will confirm that. It has an 830kW 5.0 litre V8 twin-turbo and weighs a relatively modest 1418kg. Surely, if you put 830kW into 1418kg you will get supersonic!

Not quite, perhaps, but the Koenigsegg website reveals a new list of production car world records waiting to be ratified by Guiness. They include standing acceleration and braking times. Here’s the full list:

  • 0-300 km/h = 14.53 sec
  • 0-200 mph = 17.68 sec
  • 300-0 km/h = 6.66 sec
  • 200-0 mph = 7.28 sec
  • 0-300-0 km/h = 21.19 sec
  • 0-200-0 mph = 24.96 sec

Impressive, don’t you think. Koenigsegg say they will be posting video of these feats to YouTube very soon.
