Sweden’s Koenigsegg Agera RS Smashes Bugatti Chiron’s 0-400km/h-0 Acceleration Record

The Bugatti Chiron is one impressive piece of automotive art. Volkswagen Group has poured all of its resources to develop a car that is insanely expensive – you’re looking at in excess of US $2.5 million if you want to buy one – and the very best of materials, aerodynamics, engineering and a quad turbo W16 engine that produces around 1,103kW of power and 1600Nm of torque. Truly staggering.

Bugatti recently took a Chiron, put Juan Pablo Montoya behind the wheel and told him to accelerate from 0-400km/h and then reach a stop as quickly as possible. The resulting time was 41.96 seconds. Very fast indeed.

But the Swedes at Koenigsegg¬†thought they could beat this. So they took to an airfield in Denmark with their Agera RS. And the results? You’ll have to watch the video above!
