Three days ago, a legend was made as a Koenigsegg Agera RS breaks the world record for highest top speed for a production car, previously held by the hypercar manufacturer Bugatti’s Veyron Super Sport.

This is a picture of the Agera RS that broke Bugatti’s world record.

This incredible event occurred on the fourth of November, inside of Las Vegas, Nevada, and has been all over every automotive youtubers channel. The video where I originally found this astounding feat was on the channel of a small youtuber that is know as “The StradMan” who hunts hypercars all over the world.

The previous record, was held by Bugatti’s Veyron Super Sport at a ridiculous speed of 265.7 MPH (or 427.6 KM/H) which was broken by the Agera by 8.2 seconds at an astounding 277.9 MPH (467 KM/H).

The battle will continue, as Bugatti’s newest installment, the sinister Chiron, has not been tested for a top speed yet, but has claims to be able to perform a speed of 280+ MPH. And  another hypercar manufacturer, Hennessey’s new car, the Venom F5 is competing but cannot attempt to break the record, as it is only a prototype and is yet to be released.

But for now, Koenigsegg holds the record and will fight to keep it that way. What will happen next? Stay tuned to Stevens Automotive Corner… Until next time
