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

Before the Agera RS took to that street, Bugatti held the production auto world record for top speed. Part of that speed verification is in video form below.

He on Saturday drove the customer-owned machine to a new record of 277.9 miles per hour on a closed 12-mile section of Highway 160 just outside of Pahrump, Nevada.

Factory driver Niklas Lilja, who completed the run, said: 'I wasn't nervous.

The Swedish hypercar comfortably beat the 268mph record set by the Bugatti Veyron SuperSport in 2010. The closure was set to be in place for two days but the Koenigsegg team broke the record early on the first day.

Angered by owner McNair's comment, most Texans players kneel for anthem
Owners did not vote to change a policy that would require players to stand for the anthem during that meeting. Later on Sunday, a majority of Houston Texans players knelt and locked arms during the anthem.

Video released by Racelogic, which recorded the speed, shows the Koenigsegg appearing to cruise up to 200mph before Lilja unleashes the car's full potential. It managed the feat in 37.28 seconds, 26.88 seconds of which were used to reach the top speed of 400 km/h (249 mph). Guiness World Records iniitally recalled its status, but later re-instated the Veyron to the top spot after an investigation where it stated "a change to the speed limiter does not alter the fundamental design of the vehicle or its engine".

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.

Another challenger is the recently revealed Venom F5 from America's Hennessey. They were a standard set of off-the-rack Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires-simply incredible considering the stresses they would have been put under.
