Guinness World Record

The Agera R has been granted the record for the quickest 0-300-0 km/h by Guinness.

On September 2nd the Swedish hyper car visited a Swedish-based proving ground to try and break a handful of 2-seater production car world records. And according to the Guinness Book of World Records, the Koenigsegg Agera R now holds the world record for the quickest 0-300-0 kilometers per hour. In just 21.19 seconds, driver Robert Serwanski sprinted the Agera from zero to 186mph and then brought it to a complete stop, almost without batting an eyelid.

Other world records attempted include 0-300 km/h (14.53 sec); 0-200 mph (17.68sec); 300-0 km/h (6.66sec); 200-0 mph (7.28sec); and 0-200-0 mph (24.96sec). These have yet to be certified by Guinness.
