Over the weekend Koenigsegg took it Agera RS out to a closed off 11-mile stretch of public freeway in Nevada and set off to clobber Bugatti. Before the Agera RS took to that road, Bugatti held the manufacturing automotive world report for prime pace. The Agera RS used was on the identical tires which can be delivered to clients on the automotive in case you are questioning.
The Agera RS put in a median pace of 277.Zero mph throughout two runs on Route 160 between Las Vegas and Pahrump, Nevada. Since this was a world report try, the pace was verified by a third-party firm known as Racelogic. Part of that pace verification is in video type beneath.
As you in all probability gathered from the common pace of 277.9 mph, the automotive hit a most velocity quicker than that. The quickest prime pace for the automotive through the occasion was 284 mph with the opposite run ringing in at a prime pace of 272 mph. The tires that have been used are Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, and Michelin reps have been available to make certain every part was good with the tires.
A blow out at half these velocities would spell doom for automotive and driver. This seems to be the identical precise buyer automotive that was used final month to set the Zero-400km/h-Zero report. If you neglect, the Agera RS did that feat in 36.44 seconds.
This automotive did have the non-obligatory Koenigsegg roll cage bolted in and packed 1360hp. Racelogic has revealed the video of the Agera RS dominating the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport’s pace. If you ever wished to know what it’s love to do over 270mph on a public highway, the video is price a watch. The acceleration the automotive generates between 180mph and prime pace is insane.
