Koenigsegg Agera RS Breaks Worlds Fastest Car Records
Till now, Buggati Veryon is renownedly known to be acclaimed as the worlds fastest car with a record of a mind-blowing speed of 430.9km/h which it has set in 2010. But not anymore, Koenigsegg Agera Rs may have just smashed that record out of the window.
Niklas Lilja, the factory test driver, found the sands of Pahrump, Nevada USA, to be a perfect stretch to test drive the Koenigsegg Agera RS top speed and smash the existing world records of the fastest cars.
To get the accurate reading, Lija speeded in both directions, and he was successfully able to manage a hit of 447.2 Km/h in the Agera RS, also beating the previous record of Buggati by 16.3 km/h. Though the difference seems low to get the beast speeding ticket but when it comes to top speed records that’s quite a difference.
Doesn’t Buggati was supposed to come up with a faster version of its predecessor model giving up the top-notch speed that will shatter all records? Yes, the company does have plans of making the Chiron so efficient that it will be able to race to 450.9km/h but so far it has managed to achieve a top speed of 420 km/h only.
The new model, Koenigsegg Agera RS, is a 5.0-Litre V8 which delivers 1,160 horsepower.
Does Koenigsegg Agera RS record is under threat?
Well, no doubt, the record-breaking run made by Koenigsegg Agera RS is unofficial and impressive there is another player or you could claim it as a wildcard entry all geared up to spoil the party. The recently revealed Venom F5 of Hennessey reportedly maxes out a 300 mph or 482.8 km/h, but to witness that majestic speed churning machine we’ll have to wait for until the company releases it another official news.
The number of units for Agera RS are going to be limited to 25 only, and according to the reports, ten units have already been sold leaving the rest be sold in the coming weeks.
