The Koenigsegg Agera RS has beaten the Bugatti Chiron’s 0-400-0kph (0-249-0mph) run by 5.52sec, achieving the feat in 36.44sec.
The Agera RS weighs 1395kg and is powered by a twin-turbocharged 5.0-litre V8 that produces 1341bhp and 944lb ft.
The time in which the Agera performed the run is ten times as long as the Mercedes-AMG GT R takes to go from 0-62mph, and 249mph is 51mph quicker than that car’s top speed.
Koenigsegg has not yet published a top speed for the Agera RS.
The record was set on 1 October. It was originally scheduled between 30 September and 2 October 2017 at a test facility in Germany, but conditions were unsuitable.
