Koenigsegg Agera RS became the fastest car in the world

Koenigsegg Agera RS managed to break the record speed among the production cars, accelerating to an impressive 447 km/h. Recall that until recently this record belonged to the supercar Hennessey Venom GT (435 km/h). In order to beat the opponent’s result, an optional package was added to Koenigsegg Agera RS with which the performance of the 5.0-liter V8 engine with two turbines increased to 1 360 hp. and 1,371 Nm. At the wheel of the supercar was the test pilot of the company Niklas Lila. The record race was held on a highway near the American village of Pahramp, Nevada. The road was blocked by the police in advance, after which supercar Agera RS made two arrivals in one and the other side. In the first race the hypercar accelerated to 437 km / h, but on the way back the maximum speed of the car reached 457 km / h. As a new world record, an average of 447 kilometers per hour was recorded. In the framework of this race, Koenigsegg Agera RS at the same time updated its own record for the speed of acceleration from zero to 400 km / h followed by a stop. This “exercise” of the model required a total of 33.29 seconds. Thus, the two-door improved its record immediately by 3.15 seconds.
