The Fastest Production Car in the world has 5 records

  1. Highest top speed for a production vehicle 277.87 mph (447.19 km/h)
  2. 0 – 400 – 0 km/h in just 33.29 sec
  3. Flying kilometer on a public road 276.9 mph (445.63 km/h)
  4. Flying mile on a public road 276.36 mph (444.76 km/h)
  5. Highest speed achived on a public road 284.55 mph (457.94 km/h)

The record 0 – 400 – 0 was first achived by Bugatti Chiron in 42 sec. They created this benchmark. And they was so proud on the record that they painted on the grill.

During that time Koenigsegg Agera RS was in tests. And after the few tests, a little while after, the Bugatti cleaned the time from the grill.

The good new is that the record was made with a stock car. So you can grab one if you want. There is an option for upgrade with 200hp by using ethanol and the power goes from 1MW to about 1.1MW

The car that set the record has received offers 3 times higher than production price. The production price of Agera is about $2.3 Million, depending on options, so i let you do the math…

Another lets say interesting thing is that you need to be tall enough to start the car. You cannot move the seat until you start the car. On every Koenigsegg that is produced you can remove the hardtop. The hardtop is so light that even a girl can hold it.

The Koenigsegg pain is so special that ordinary people may consider it a fortune. You may wonder why. Well, because is actual diamond dust. And it cost about several hundred thousand dollars, dependind where are you put it in the car.

The key is simple and has diamond dust. It offers unique driver experience because it offer that do things that normal cars don’t do.

With all the requirements from the goverment, the safety features and other features the car has a weight of 1420 kg wich is super low.

The car who set those records it looks exactly like the car in the picture below.

Performance

Agera does not have a gear box. There is only one drive mode. The car is a customer-owned vehicle, a Koenigsegg Agera RS fitted with our 1MW engine upgrade producing 1,360hp when running on E85 fuel. The engine is helped to reach his potential by an powerful electric motor. You practically start with equivalent of 7th gear assisted by the electric motor. It has 800v EV.

The magic is that you have power instantly everywhere at your flick of your foot. The transmission is made for long run. Is very very durable and extremely good for high torque.

The ghost

On the rear you can see the ghost logo. It is named “The spirit of performance” and has the slogan “The show must go on”.

The brakes for Agera are unique. They are made inhouse and designed for each part of the car. Like the front-right disk brake can be used only in front on the right side. Same for the rest. Everything is optimised for every corner of the car.

In the front of the car there is a masive cooler. The most horse power to cool off than any production car in the world. Many of the cars are going in Dubai or Saudi Arabia and so on, so there is no compromise on cooling.

They have the world record for stopping with those brakes.

Interior

Each car is individual tailored to the customer own taste. You can chose everything when inspecting the car. There is no 2 Koenigsegg the same. There is no standard Koenigsegg made. You can customize the colors, stiching, paterns, and many more.

The seats are unique also. The structure only is made from carbon fiber and weighs 1.8 kg. Leather is top quality. Koenigsegg use the same leather supplier Rolls Royce is using.

All the electric was redesign for Agera. There are a lot of processors that can be upgraded along the time. You can say that it’s a distributed control system. Even the wing mirrors have processors inside or the door locks or lapms.

Exterior

Windscreens are also unique. When the design team took the decision for a so curved windscreen the producers said that is not can be made. The production of this type of windscreen is pricey because the glass must be melted at the same temperature. Every different change effects the optics of the glass. In mass production the costs are quite big. This is only one reason because the car is not produced in mass. And in case you forgot the cost of a car like this is about $2.3 million.

The production cycle was almost four weeks in the beginning and now is about two weeks a far as i know.

The layers of the colors are taken care of. It takes more effort but for $2.3 million you can sense the every layer whether it’s paint, carbon fiber or other material. As i said above, you can chose every color you want, the car is fully customizable.

The rims weighs about 6.5 and 7.5 kilo (front and rear). Not all the wheels are carbon because some of the customers want shiny wheels and this cannot be done with fiber carbon unfortunately. They have the lightest carbon fiber wheels in the world. There are few others producers out there that fabric carbon fibers wheels, but not that light. One of the reasons are because are hollow.

There are about 500 carbon fiber pieces into a Koenigsegg car.

The doors open is unique also. They have 2 video cameras, one near mirror and one at the front of the door. When you open the door the cameras scans the way before door so you don’t hit anything. If there is an object the door stops. At the touch of a button, the door opens.

Mirrors are also very inteligent. Beside the scan sensor there is a camera inside wich is connected with the rest of the cameras to have an helicopter view from the inside.

The roof can be taken off wherever you are and be putted in the front trunk. Not many car offers that. Super handy feature. You can see tires presure and temperature always.
