by Ionut Dragomir

The Swedish supercar maker, Koenigsegg has announced that it has broken no less than six world land speed records for a production car over the weekend.

The protagonist of our story is the Koenigsegg’s latest beauty, the 1,115 horsepower Agera R.

The six new records set were as follows:

0-186 mph = 14.53 sec
0-200 mph = 17.68 sec
186-0 mph = 6.66 sec
200-0 mph = 7.28 sec
0-186-0 mph = 21.19 sec
0-200-0 mph = 24.96 sec

“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.

The Agera R features ventilated ceramic brakes which gives it the impressive acceleration and deceleration feature like 0 to 200 kmph and then to stop, that is 0 to 124 mph to zero in 12.7 seconds.

The car boasts of a 5.0 liter V8 engine that can develop an earth shattering 1,115 HP at 6,900 rpm. This, when the car is run on E85 ethanol. The car is also capable of running on 95 octane petrol and would generate an impressive 940 hp or 1,050 hp when run on 98 octane gasoline. The top speed of the car is more than 420 kmph or 261 mph.

The other equipment fit of the car that makes it unique are the adaptive rear wing, hydraulic lifting system, satellite navigation system and the G sensor which can make its passengers feel up to 1.6G of lateral g-force. The car also swanks of leather carpets and a silver key.

There are certain optional features that the car maker offers but that comes at added costs. These include a visible carbon body, front winglets, rear view camera, heated seats, ski box roof, skis, Inconel exhaust system and winter wheel package. Cost of the car though not officially announced is expected to be more than €1,000,000 ($1,410,000).

Note, the Guinness Book of Records is yet to confirm the results, although all data was measured and collected by a third party with the officially accepted Racelogic VBox performance recorder.
