In just one month, Koenigsegg‘s Agera RS destroyed the Bugatti Chiron‘s 0-400-0 km/h (248.55 mph) record. Koenigsegg’s factory driver Niklas Lilja made history by accelerating to 400 km/h in an astounding 26.88 seconds, over a distance of 1,958 m (6,424 feet). In just 9.56 seconds and 483 m (1,585 feet) later, it came to a complete stop once more.
The Bugatti Chiron required 41.96 seconds for its 0-400-0 km/h performance and a distance of 3,112 m (10,210 feet) back when it reigned supreme last month. The Koenigsegg Agera RS packs a One:1 upgrade package, which allows its 5.0-liter V8 engine to churn out 1,360 horsepower and 1,011 lb-ft. of torque. The record-breaking event took place at the Vandel Airfield in Denmark on October 1.
