In October at a military airfield in Denmark Koenigsegg Agera RS broke the record of Bugatti Chiron in acceleration from standstill to 400 km/h and then stop: the Swedish hypercar completed this exercise for 36,44 with (the result of Chiron — of 41.96 s). The fifth of November the Swedes repeated the measurements in the us state of Nevada near the town of Pahrump on a closed straight section of highway 160. Factory driver Niklas Lilja was able to perform the exercise 0-400-0 km/h in 33,29 with — a new world record!
But mainly in the U.S. session was still another achievement: beaten-owned Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport’s record of the maximum speed for serial cars 431,072 km/h: achievement Agera RS — 446, 97 km/his the average value of two runs in opposite directions. The absolute maximum of the car in one of the attempts made 457,49 km/h.
Along the way, managed to improve the acceleration time from zero to 400 km/h was of 26.88, was 24! 1500-strong Bugatti Chiron, recall, exchanged five hundred for 32.6 s. the maximum speed of Chiron is still unknown, the firm Bugatti plans to conduct races.
- Firm Hennessey Performance from Texas wants to thumb his nose at the same time the Ager and Chiron: last week she introduced the Venom F5 hypercar, which theoretically can accelerate to over 300 mph, that is 482 km/h, but this “monster” has yet to prove their abilities.
- The absolute record for land speed-controlled vehicles was installed in 1997 and is 1227,985 km/h. This speed was reached British driver Andy green driving Thrust SS, equipped with two turbojet engines Rolls-Royce. In 2020 Andy green plans to set a new record by driving the Bloodhound SSC raketomobil and to surpass the milestone of 1000 mph (1609 km/h).
