Agera RS #?? battleship grey
Agera RS #?? record car
Agera R #103 blue carbon/gold accents
CCX #46 black/ghost package
CCXRS #43 clear carbon/black
EDIT 11:15am PST - According to IG user cars_and_criticisms who is onsight they just hit 291mph... stay tuned
EDIT 2 - Update - According to people onsite they have made a 2nd run in the reverse direction (as required by Guinness) and hit 263mph, which brings their average to 277!!!!!!!!!!
Apparently it is quite windy there hence the large difference in speeds.
If these figures are correct, we have a new world record! By 9 mph! Not to mention the absurd 291mph run...
EDIT 3 - Update: IG User and owner Whitesse is reporting Koenigsegg have set official record at 284.7mph!!!!!! Unbelievable
EDIT 4 - 1220pm PST - Koenigsegg is reporting on their instagram an average, two-way speed of 277.9mph, VBOX confirmed. Congratulations to Koenigsegg!!! A record long awaited by every fan.
