Koenigsegg have smashed the world record for the fastest car in the world with a run of 277.9mph in the same car they completed the 0-400-0 record
Just days after Hennessy Performance unveiled their latest contender the Venom F5, Koenigsegg has just set the bar even higher. For a run to be qualified as a world record, the car has to do the run in both directions and then the final number is taken from the average of both runs. Before the record was shattered by the Agera RS, the official record holder was the Bugatti Veyron Super Sports (267.856 mph) and the unofficial record held by the Venom GT (270.49) which was only done in one direction.
It’ll be interesting to see what Bugatti will have to say about this. Will they attempt to reach 300mph?
