277mph Koenigsegg Agera RS is the new fastest car in the world
On the first, Koenigsegg test driver Niklas Lilja hit 271.2 miles per hour, fast enough to best the unofficial one-way record of 270.39 miles per hour set by the Hennessey Venom GT in 2014. After all, the 277.9mph figure - which makes the Agera RS the world's fastest production vehicle - was an average of two runs.
This Koenigsegg Agera RS is the same auto which broke the record of Chiron by five seconds.
The Bugatti Chiron is its closest rival with a top speed of 261mph, although Bugatti claims it has the potential to hit 310mph in the future. After making a joke of the Bugatti Chiron's record, Koenigsegg has chose to take on the just announced Hennessey Venom F5.
Costing £1.5 million, the supercar attempted the record in Las Vegas and was driven by factory driver Niklas Lilja.
The video shows both runs: one with a top speed of about 438km/h, the other way up there at 457km/h. The Koenigsegg reportedly ran standard Michelin Pilot Cup 2s. The Agera RS is powered by a 5.0 lite V8 engine which is turbo charged, it has a massive 1,380 horsepower.
