Koenigsegg Agera R Sets Guinness World Record For 0-300 KM/H Time [Video]
It was only a few months ago when we reported that the Koenigsegg Agera R had set record breaking times in acceleration runs from 0-200 mph and 0-300 km/h (0-186 mph).

Now these figures have been verified by the Guinness Book of World Records, and it has named the Agera R as the fastest accelerating production car in the world.

The famous record keeping organization reported that the Agera R went from 0-300 km/h in just 14.53 seconds. The 0-300-0 km/h run took just 21.19 seconds to compete, which is another record. The stop from 300-0 km/h took a very devilish 6.66 seconds, proving this car could truly be the son of Satan.

It also went on to claim the 0-200-o mph record with a time of just 24.96 seconds. The test runs were performed at the Angeholm Airfied in Sweden by Koenigsegg’s test driver Robert Serwanski at the wheel.

To fully enjoy these performance numbers, watch the video below:

Organized by Subaru of America’s Great Lakes Region and the Village of Itasca, Illinois, the chain of Subys stretched a total of 339 cars.

Yup, that’s a lot of turbocharged boxer engines and a total of 1,356 all-wheel drive wheels.

For achieving their goal, as promised, Subaru’s Great Lakes Region made a donation of $3,500 each to PAWS Chicago and Salute, Inc.
