For the first time since 2010, the previous record was brokenvehicle speed, owned by the car of the French company Bugatti Automobiles. We remind you that seven years ago, the French managed to accelerate their supercar to a speed of 431 kilometers per hour. Well, sooner or later it should have happened, and now the Swedish Koenigsegg Agera RS will be in the first place in the champions table, and it managed to reach speeds of 447 kilometers per hour when driving on a public highway in Nevada.
For the Swedes from Koenigsegg this is not the firstrecord. In early October of this year, the company bypassed Bugatti in another one - the acceleration time from 0 to 400 kilometers per hour, and then the car’s complete stop. It took 42 seconds for the Bugatti supercar, and the Koenigsegg Agera RS took just 36.44 seconds to complete its combat mission. During acceleration up to 400 km / h, the car managed to drive 1958 meters in 26.88 seconds, and it took 9.56 seconds to brake to a full stop. Braking distance in the end was another 483 meters. Video record of the record you can see below.
The maximum speed record was set toThe 18-kilometer stretch of the public highway near Las Vegas. Behind the wheel of a supercar was a professional pilot Niklas Lilja. Representatives of Bugatti have already assured the public that in the future they will bypass their Swedish competitors next year. It is also possible that the new record will put the American hypercar Hennessey Venom F5, which in theory can accelerate to an impressive 484 kilometers per hour. Only time will tell who will become the new champion.
