last month saw a 1,360bhp koenigsegg ‘agera RS’ shoot from 0 – 249mph in just 36.44 seconds. during the weekend, the very same ‘agera’ managed to shave off a few seconds, achieving a record of 33.29 s. the hypercar managed an average top speed of 277.87 mph (447.19 km/h) over two runs, meaning it is now the fastest production car ever. the sprint from 0 – 249 mph bit was covered off in 24 seconds flat, while braking back down to zero took a further 9.29 s over 499.3 metres.

  • Mr Koenigsegg is a tireless fighter and deserves it
