Koenigsegg Agera R Nails Acceleration Records

A very fast koenigsegg...
A very fast koenigsegg...
The Koenigsegg Agera R has set a string of production car records at its proving ground in Ängelholm, Sweden, becoming in the process the most accelerative car from 0-200mph ever.

The records are as yet unofficial (though they have been submitted to the Guinness Book of World Records) though that doesn't make them any less spectacular.

The Agera R managed 0-200mph in 17.68secs and 200-0 mph in just 7.28secs (making 0-200-0mph in a thoroughly impressive 24.96secs).

...and a happy Christian Von Koenigsegg

The Swedish hypercar also posted 0-300km/h in 14.53secs and 300-0km/h in 6.66secs.

Quite fast, then. Koenigsegg tells us they're preparing a video for the wilds of YouTube showing the run, which we'll bring to you as soon as it appears - so watch this space.

    First post with the most obvious question, what does the Veyron Supersport do it in?

  • rockandrollmark 05 Sep 2011

    That's pretty phenomenal given that some cars on sale today won't even hit 60 in 17 seconds (and I'm sure there are some which would struggle to hit 60 in 24 seconds.

    I wonder if this will beat the Ultimata 0 to 100 to 0 (unofficial) record too?
