Koenigsegg sets new production auto speed record at 447 km/h

The Koenigsegg Agera RS Is Now the Fastest Production Car Ever Made

The Koenigsegg Agera RS Is Now the Fastest Production Car Ever Made

The test was carried out on an 11-mile stretch of road between Las Vegas and Pahrhump, that had been closed to the public. At the same time, I'm extremely jealous of the pure, unfiltered speed driver Niklas Lilja must have felt. American tuner, Hennesey, claimed it built the world's fastest vehicle with its 968kW, Lotus-based Venom GT after it questioned whether the Veyron's long-standing record was illegitimate as the auto was driven without its electronic speed limiter, and therefore not representative of its road-going specification.

Like many people, we were wondering just what kind of peak speed was achieved during Koenigsegg's record-breaking run with an Agera RS.

All that remains is for the world speed record, which was recorded and verified by Racelogic, to be officially recognised. An 11-mile straight section of the highway was closed for the drives, which beat rival car-maker Bugatti's previous record of 268 miles per hour.

Roger Stone suspended from Twitter after personal attacks against CNN
One is affiliated with his blog Stone Cold Truth, and another is related to the Netflix documentary about him. Stone also told Politico that he, his family, and even his dog have received death threats on Twitter.

Another challenger is the recently revealed Venom F5 from America's Hennessey. It is powered by a 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8 that produces 865kW and upto 1280Nm of torque and just 25 of the hand-built Swedish machines will be built. As mentioned, a factory driver was behind the wheel. Earlier in October, Koenigsegg took another record from Bugatti, smashing the 0-400-0 km/h record.

No matter what, the Koenigsegg Agera RS is unofficially the world's fastest hypercar. They were a standard set of off-the-rack Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires-simply incredible considering the stresses they would have been put under.
