The Koenigsegg Agera RS broke Bugatti Chiron’s record in acceleration and braking from 0 to 400 km/h and back to 0 km/h.
The new record of 0-400-0 km/h is now 36.44 seconds.
Chiron’s mark had been established for less than a month – as we reported here – with the 41.96 seconds record. The time made by Juan Pablo Montoya has now been exceeded.
Last Sunday day 1, the Koenigsegg factory rider Niklas Lilja, accelerated with the Agera RS from 0 to 400 km/h in 26.88 seconds on 1958 meters and slowed down to 0 km/h in 9:56 seconds over 483 meters.
The 0-400-0 km/h achieved in 36.44 seconds were completed in a total of 2442 meters of the Vandel runway, n Denmark. And as Koenigseg stresses, Lilja took this Agera RS up to 403 km/h within 37.28 seconds at a distance of 2535 meters.
In the video released by the Swedish manufacturer it is revealed that the record was attested by an AiM EVO5 and AiM GPS08 data meter.
The Koenigsegg Agera RS that broke the 0-400-0 km/h record has in the heart the evolution of the 1MW Swedish brand engine producing 1,360 horsepower and 1,371 Nm of torque. With only 25 units planned for production this Agera RS intended for a US client which has become historic as a recipient.
