This street-legal vehicle is smashing world records for speed”

A Swedish hypercar has set a world record for the fastest ever road-legal auto after averaging a staggering 278 miles per hour.

The Swedish automaker had shut down the 11-mile stretch to attempt the fastest production vehicle record with several natural obstructions like wind and G-forces to deal with.

Koenigsegg Agera RS has accelerated from 0 to 400 km/h and back to 0 in 36.44 seconds, on Sunday (1 October), at Vandel Airfield in Denmark. During the 2011 Indian Grand Prix, Alguersuari recorded top speed of 324.2 kph.

Driver Niklas Lilja told he "wasn't nervous" during the run, adding: "Driving the road at 100mph, it was very quiet and smooth".

On the first of its two runs, the Agera hit 271.2mph despite driving slightly uphill and into a headwind. The average of 277.9mph secured the record.

The Agera RS is powered by a five-litre twin turbo 32-valve DOHC V8 engine, which drives a seven-speed paddle-shift transmission in a 1395kg chassis. This is also thanks to it being lightweight, weighing in at 1,996kg - about the same as three dairy cows. With just one twitch of the wheel at such speed the steering seemed to react nearly instantly. However, that car's maker has unveiled its latest F5 model, which could steal the crown from the Koenigsegg if it can reach 300mph, as claimed.
