A Swedish company, Koenigsegg well-known for the hypercars, has broken a world record with its tiny Agera RS for the fastest production car, over the last weekend. With the real hypercar style of ultra-Luxe, the company has shut down the section of state route 160 between Pahrump and Las Vegas, Nevada, while the test routes were very much conventional. The Agera RS hit the earlier record i.e. 267.8 mph, which was set by Bugatti Veyron super sport in 2010.
Since, this tiny Swedish hypercar with an highest speed skillfully compete with the records set by the Hennessey Venom GT hitting 270.49 mph in 2014 but just in a single direction and prompted questions regarding how many cars they have to build for qualifying the competition of production car.
Again, the question comes in mind that how is that possible to make such record. But, Koenigsegg has yet not revealed much about the more details. While, there is a common recipe for any highest speed-run that includes some steps. That involves adding power then the air resistance becomes high with the square of speed and required oomph increases by a cube of speed. According to Koenigsegg, a five liters v8 engine is bets for more than around 1,300 horsepower.
An aerospace professor, Joe Katz from the San Diego state university states that, “you just eat up the rubber. If you hit something, and lift the front, you can get airborne almost instantly.”
