Finally after beating Bugatti Chiron’s 0-400-0 Kmh record, Koeingsegg showed the world the true power of a V8 Engine!
Koenigsegg as of late declared that creation of the Agera RS has arrived at an end, yet that hasn’t prevented it from setting yet another best speed record. A year ago, the Swedish supercar broke no under five world records at Nevada. It beat the Bugatti Chiron’s 0-249-0 mph record, and furthermore achieved a shocking rate of 284 mph – the quickest speed at any point recorded by a creation auto on an open street. Also, now Koenigsegg can add one more record to that rundown.
At a current Vmax200 occasion in the UK, the last Agera RS at any point assembled, a blue illustration named the ‘RSN’ possessed by Neil Miller, recorded a speed of 242 mph over a set separation of 1.3 miles, beating the past 240-mph Vmax200 record over a set separation of 1.4 miles. By chance, that record was accomplished by a Koenigsegg One:1 out of 2016. VMax200 is a best speed occasion held a few times each year at runways around the UK, on the off chance that you didn’t know. The erratic Agera RSN utilized for the run was specced with the discretionary one-megawatt motor from the One:1, which wrenches the auto’s 5.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 up to 1,360 hp and 1,011 lb-ft of torque.
In an early run, Miller accomplished a speed of 234 mph in the Agera RS. After one hour, Koenigsegg industrial facility driver Niklas Lilja assumed control for the last keeps running of the day, beating out at 242 mph and setting another record. “The auto was solid throughout the day. We needed to complete somewhat calibrating on the dynamic back wing as we advanced during that time so we most likely left a couple of mph on the table for next time,” said Lilja. “By and large, however, it was an exceptionally fulfilling occasion, and a decent method to go down the experience we had setting five new world records in Nevada a year ago.” If you’re think about how the heavier Agera RS beat the One:1 at the Vmax200 occasion, the One:1 was restricted to 240 mph and hit that speed before the end goal.
“It’d be a fascinating activity to evacuate the limiter one day and see these two cars clash,” said Oliver Webb, who set the 2016 Vmax200 record in the One:1. “In any case, it’s a magnificent thing that it took a Koenigsegg to break the record held by another Koenigsegg!”
