The Koenigsegg Agera RS Is Now the Fastest Production Car Ever Made

But Koenigsegg's record may not last long as two rival hypercars look set to pose a serious challenge to the Swedish hypercar's title of world's fastest vehicle. After one sighting run he made his first speed attempt, turned around and came back.

The test was carried out on an 11-mile stretch of road between Las Vegas and Pahrhump, that had been closed to the public.

The Koenigsegg Agera RS is the newly crowned fastest production vehicle in the world, after having surpassed the speed attained by previous record-holder, the Bugatti Veyron. Lau also said that, since the event wasn't a tightly embargoed automaker event, some misinformation was leaking throughout the day - like a reported top speed of 291 miles per hour.

Previously the world record was held by the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport which clocked 269.86mph in 2010.

Koenigsegg also claims to have set another record on the day. The average of 277.9mph secured the record.

Said Manfred: "There is no place in our game for the behavior or any behavior like the behavior we witnessed last night". Manfred announced that Gurriel will be suspended without pay for five games during the 2018 regular season.

According to Jim Lau from Racelogic - the folks who helped verify the speed with various VBox data loggers - the event was actually put on by Koenigsegg owners.

Sure, the V10 Italian exotic may only have half the power of an Agera RS with the Megawatt engine, but the Sant'Agata Bolognese machine has something that the Swede is missing, namely a naturally aspirated heart.

Hennessey failed to take the speed record, however, because the auto only completed one run and the title-holder is required to make two runs down the same stretch of tarmac in opposite directions.

The test was then carried out using Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres which are the tyres the Koenigsegg is sold with and are authorised for use on the road.
