Koenigsegg Agera R claiming some performance world records

While the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport may be the world’s fastest car (with the SSC Tuatara working hard to catch up), the new Koenigsegg is out grabbing it’s own round of product car world records with the Agera R.

“The Records truly show the Agera Rs phenomenal stability, acceleration and braking performance – and that presently its performance is in a leauge of its own,” Koenigsegg said in a statement. “All results will be submitted to the Guinness Book of Records.”

The numbers are as follows:

  • 0-300 km/h (186 mph)= 14.53 sec
  • 0-200 mp/h (124 mph) = 17.68 sec
  • (186 mpg) 300-0 km/h = 6.66 sec
  • (124 mph) 200-0 mp/h = 7.28 sec
  • 0-300-0 km/h (186 mph)= 21.19 sec
  • 0-200-0 mp/h (124 mph) = 24.96 sec

Koenigsegg said that during the runs, wind was calm and came in straight from the side, not affecting the results. Weather was partially cloudy and fair. The test track is completely flat with no gradient. Koenigsegg will released some videos of the record runs over the next few days. Stay tuned.

Refresher: Power for the Agera R comes from a 5.0L twin-turbo V8 producing 1,115-hp and a maximum torque of 885 lb-ft on E85 fuel. If you fill the tank with 95-octange gasoline instead of E85 biofuel, you’ll only get 940-hp and 811 lb-ft of torque. The Koenigsegg Agera R goes from 0 to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds with a top speed of 240 mph.
