Just one month after shattering the Chiron's 0-400-0kmh record by 5 seconds, Koenigsegg have set the new world record for the fastest production vehicle, clocking a 277.9mph two-way average top speed in the Agera RS.
The Koenigsegg also managed to beat the former record-holding Hennessey Venom GT's run by more than 7mph. Towards the end of the second run, the Agera RS even surpasses 450 km/h - close to the speed of a small aircraft.
The previous record was 268 miles per hour, held by Bugatti which achieved the speed in 2010. The closure was set to be in place for two days but the Koenigsegg team broke the record early on the first day.
The video above shows that the Agera RS reaches 272mph (437.7kmh) on the first run and an impressive 284.3mph (457kmh) during the second. At the same time, I'm extremely jealous of the pure, unfiltered speed driver Niklas Lilja must have felt.
