Bugatti's recent record zero to 400km/h and back to zero time is no more.

Swedish carmaker Koenigsegg answered the call of the blistering 41.96 second time set by the Bugatti Chiron when driven by former F1 and Indycar driver Juan Pablo Montoya in September, 2017.

Utilising the new Agera RS driven by Koenigsegg factory driver, Niklas Lilja, the Swedish hypercar maker managed to complete the run in just 36.44 seconds, more than five seconds faster than the Bugatti Chiron.

The Koenigsegg Agera RS hit 400km/h in just 26.88 seconds, which is far quicker than the Bugatti Chiron which hit the peak speed in a comparatively pedestrian 32.6 seconds. The Koenigsegg even had a little more juice to peak at 403km/h before starting to break

Just as remarkable was that it took only 9.56 seconds to bring the hardcore street machine to a complete halt.

This particular Koenigsegg Agera RS featured a 1MW engine upgrade to its 5.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine that produced a stonking 1014kW of power and 1370Nm of torque.
