Veyron's records smashed.




Koenigsegg is pretty adept at knocking out moderately fast cars capable of conjuring terrifying bouts of speed. You may remember it from such hits as the Koenigsegg CCX.

Well, another of its progeny has reportedly topped another power board. A short statement on its website said: "Today, 2 September 2011 at 12.08pm, a standard Koenigsegg Agera R took several new production car world records at the Koenigsegg proving ground in Angelholm, Sweden."


Koenigsegg said the data was measured and collected by a third party and that "all results will be submitted to the Guinness Book of Records."

Guinness confirmed to TopGear.com that they're waiting for the results, meanwhile congratulating the Swedes on the records. Records that are as follows:


0-200mph: 17.68 seconds
300-0kmh: 6.66 seconds
200-0mph: 7.28 seconds
0-300-0kmh: 21.19 seconds
0-200-0mph: 24.96 seconds


In comparison, the Bugatti Veyron Supersport delivers a 0-200mph time of 22.2 seconds. This is very, very quick. I look forward to the release of more information!

  3. Well that info hasn't been released yet, sorry! The only comparison that is out there to the Veyron Supersport is the 0-200mph time which I have already posted above, however, it is still insanely impressive!

  4. What about the top speed? I bet it doesn't beat Bugattty Veyron SS at that.
