On Saturday, the mad Swedes at Koenigsegg did one thing really outstanding: in an Agera RS, a manufacturing facility driver achieved a median pace of 447km/h throughout two runs on Nevada’s Route 160 between Las Vegas and Pahrump. This could make the Agera RS the world’s quickest avenue authorized manufacturing automotive. Now you’ll be able to see what these runs appeared like from the driving force’s perspective.
The good of us at Racelogic despatched us the video recorded by the VBOX HD2 through the two runs, and for those who’ve ever been curious what approaching 450km/h seems like from the badpit, you are about to seek out out.
The video exhibits each runs: one with a high pace of about 438km/h, the opposite approach up there at 457km/h. The two speeds have been averaged collectively to get the official time. Throughout the day, the max pace appears to have been 457km/h.
It’s nearly terrifying. Even with the straight street and presumably a good grade, I can not even think about how shut you would come to catastrophe at that velocity. At the identical time, I am extraordinarily jealous of the pure, unfiltered pace driver Niklas Lilja will need to have felt. It will need to have been scary and liberating on the identical time.
Koenigsegg advised Jalopnik the run was finished on Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, the identical tires delivered to prospects, and that Michelin reps have been on-hand to verify all the things went okay.
We’ll replace this put up as we get extra info, however preliminarily, it seems just like the Agera RS is quicker than the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.
Here’s video of the day’s occasions from our good friend Gordon Cheng as properly:
