A Koenigsegg Agera RS Just Broke The Record For Going From Zero To 249 MPH And Back To Zero

Just last month, a Bugatti Chiron went from zero to 249 mph and back to zero in an incredible 41.96 seconds. On Sunday, a Koenigsegg Agera RS broke that record, performing the same feat in 36.44 seconds.


The Koenigsegg broke the record at an airfield in Vandel, Denmark. Here’s the video they published Thursday, documenting the act, replete with hype music and what at first seems like a teaser before the (rather calm, frankly) cockpit footage.

“0 - 400 - OMG!” indeed.

I love Koenigsegg and this is cool and exciting (and the Agera would be cool even if they failed here) but the best thing about this whole scenario is this: Bugatti’s tacky Chiron with a big 42 in the grille to commemorate their new record, is now commemorating nothing. Hopefully there’s a really wealthy Douglas Adams fan out there to buy it
