Default Koenigsegg Agera R Hits 250 MPH On The Nürburgring





Quote:
A 1,200-horsepower Koenigsegg Agera R topped out at 249.54 mph (401.6 kph) on the main straight of the Nürburgring Nordschleife at yesterday's Gran Turismo Nurburgring supercar meet-up. No, it wasn't a video game, and yes, it is insane. The driver, Norwegian Bård Eker, isn't even a factory test driver. He is a regular Koenigsegg owner, simply driving flat out on the nearly one-and-a-half-mile-long Döttinger-Höhe straight. He described the run, saying,
No problems with stability under extreme speeds. The tarmac was a little bumpy while braking so It was quite exciting before the left turn.
Koenigsegg just got a little bit cooler.

I wonder if they have their version of the subaru ownership badges? I can see it now, "My 4th Koenigsegg" + "250 mph" + "Hotel Chains"?

250mph is insane. I don't have the balls to do that.

I could see Top gear doing a drag race between that and the bugatti on the straight away, which would be a drag race but probably the most epic one ever

Too narrow and dangerous for that straight.


On Ehra Lessein though.. Even though that's owned by VW.



Most likely place for a drag race will be the Middle East.

pretty absurd to think that this is even possible in a street-legal car, but just watch this video and you realize it's definitely do-able.

Edit: Is the Koenigsegg this thread is about, the same one that has the camless engine? Or is that going to be a future/next one, like in the link below?
