Remember the famous 0-400-0 in 42 by Bugatti Chiron? Well, the Swedish hypercar maker Koenigsegg has taken the similar challenge in an Agera RS destined for delivery in the United States.
In fact, Koenigsegg said that the owner was very keen to verify the car’s performance in comparison to other manufacturers.
This particular Agera RS features the optional 1MW upgrade, meaning the 5.0 twin turbo V8 makes 1,360 hp and 1,371 Nm of torque compared to 1160 hp and 1280 Nm standard output.
Driven by Koenigsegg factory driver, Niklas Lilja, at Vandel Airfield in Denmark, the Agera RS took 26.88 seconds to accelerate to 400 km/h over a distance of 1,958 meters. Deceleration took 9.56 seconds over 483 meters. The total distance for 0-400-0 was 2,441 meters. The entire run from 0-403-0 km/h took 37.28 seconds over a distance of 2,535 m.
The Chiron weighs close to 2 tonnes (1995 kg) compared to 1395 kg kerb weight of the Agera RS. I guess its all about power-to-weight ratio then. Nonetheless, its fantastic to see 0-400-0 challenges. Regera might do this even faster.
