Koenigsegg Agera R Claims Acceleration and Braking Records

In case you haven't noticed, the hypercar world is silently (you know, we must seem reserved during the recession) but steadily making steps towards the... speed of light.

 The are certain automotive producers for which performance has been transformed into opulence and these are the companies that keep our spirit alive. The latest example of this kind comes from Koenigsegg, which has recently taken its Agera R to new acceleration heights

The car maker, together with a (so far mysterious) third party took their hypercar to the Ängelholm proving ground in Sweden, put the pedal through the metal and recorder the results with a Racelogic VBox. As you'll be able to see below, the Agera R delivered bewildering performance, in terms of both gaining and losing speed. But let's not waste seconds, let's see the exact numbers:

0-300 km/h = 14.53 sec
0-200 mp/h = 17.68 sec

300-0 km/h = 6.66 sec
200-0 mp/h = 7.28 sec

0-300-0 km/h = 21.19 sec
0-200-0 mp/h = 24.96 sec

Koenigsegg says that the results are now on their way to the folks over at Guinness Book of Records and that it will soon offer us a video of the feat.

"We are proud to announce that this record breaking car is heading to our partners in Singapore. It will be showcased at the Singapore Grand Prix FIA Formula One World Championship. This is the first Koenigsegg Agera R in Singapore. Don´t miss the opportunity to check this world champion out," a company statement reads.
