Default Koenigsegg Agera R Sets 6 world records



That's right the Agera trumps the veyron ss in mind boggling acceleration tests that will be confirmed by the Guiness Book of World Records shortly.

Here's just a few figures:

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

Wow that's fast!

Here's the article

Are you mental? What about getting to 200 mph in less than 18 sec is undesirable? It beats the AWD Veyron SS in every one of those tests. Obviously a sub 3 sec 0-60 isn't that traction limited. Not like could actually afford one anyway.

I still have a soft spot in my heart for the Veyron SS...this car is unbelievable for sure! The Veyron was still the "first" and is still first in my heart. It is great to see Koenigsegg back in the swing of things though!

Indeed. The Veyron is engineered to travel at 200mph with ease, as in it feels like your putzing around at 30mph while the world flies by you. This is something a LOT of other supercars do not do. Most supercars are very unstable at that speed, edgy, vibrating violently, and generally feeling quite uneasy about going at that rate. Bugatti made great efforts to make the Veyron very natural at such speeds. It is tame and composed, stable, and mundane. That is the brilliance of the Veyron. It is something that no other super car will touch.

How do you know this isn't stable at such speeds, personal experience? Obviously the agera r will not only touch the veyron it surpasses it. Look at the numbers compared between the two. Plus its much much sexier. What about 0-200-0 in less than 25 secs with a top speed of 260 isn't just as impressive if not more than the veyron?

Pics or it didn't happen.

There are no legally imported and driven Zondas in the US.
There are a couple driven illegally and a few more imported under the show and display law, but I doubt they’re being rented out in Vegas.

What supercar is unstable at 100mph? My viper was easy and quiet (for viper) until 180mph. At 197mph, the fear of "what if" was the greatest concern, the car was stable, with a light lift at the front of the car.
My Murci is silent at 90mph. There is a little higher rev note at 100-120mph. Murci is very stable and quiet to 160ish (I haven't been beyond).
I cannot believe that any supercar is unstable below 200mph. Now at 230+ I can see where it could get windy, flappy, lifty, and nerve racking.

I need a word for the Agera R; something between outrageous, amazing, and gorgeous.
