Koenigsegg Agera RS – A month ago, the car manufacturer Bugatti proudly announced a new world record. A Bugatti Chiron with 1,500 hp needed only 42 seconds to speed up from 0 to 400 km/h and then to brake from 400 to 0 km/h again. The video on Youtube was watched over 6.3 million times. The audience also included the Swedish carmakers from Koenigsegg, who did not want to put the shame on themselves for long.

On October 1, the record set by Bugatti was broken. This is a Koenigsegg Agera RS, controlled by Niklas Lilja at an airport in Vandel (Denmark).
