Watch Agera RS smash Bugatti time

Koenigsegg Agera RS breaks Bugatti record

McGREGOR v Mayweather may have got all the boxing pundits excited this year.

But this heavy mettle battle has got more punch.

Koenigsegg takes on Bugatti in a race to from 0-249mph and back to 0.

As this video shows, the Agera has just managed that in 36.44 seconds.

So what I hear you cry.

But that in actual fact is a whopping FIVE SECONDS quicker than the Chiron managed a month ago at 41.96 seconds.

OK so these are first world problems for motoring geeks.

Especially when most of us are happy when our Vauxhall Corsa makes it to the end of the road in under a minute on the school run.

Christian von Koenigsegg admitted: “A result like this does not just happen. It may have only taken a few hours of driving to complete this run, but we cannot overlook all of the work that went into creating the car in the first place. Building these cars takes everything we have. We give it our all, every day of the week.

“Dreams can become reality. The story of David and Goliath continues to resonate. It is so important to visualise our efforts and results. It gives fuel to the dreamers and visionaries striving to realise their goals.

“You can do it regardless of how impossible it seems. This is probably the most important aspect of what we do here at Koenigsegg.”

What next?

Breaking the sound barrier?
