In just 31.49 seconds, the Koenigsegg Regera was able to not only hit 250mph, but then brake back to 0mph. These are some incredibly impressive numbers to say the least, but what’s even more impressive is the video that’s just been released showing exactly how the action went down.
With the Koenigsegg factory driver Sonny Persson behind the wheel, the Regera was able to remove almost two seconds from the previous record made by the Agera RS. The car effortlessly accelerates up its single gear to the speed of 250mph before Persson slams on the brakes to bring the car to a standstill. He wrestles with the grip as it comes to a stop in an effortless manner.
Clearly seen in the video, the only modification to the car is a roll cage, plus the use of a Racelogic VBox which tracks the car’s speed and analytics. Yeah, they’re quite impressive…
- 0-400 km/h in 22.82 seconds
- 0-250 mph in 23.64 seconds
- 400-0 km/h in 8.67 seconds
- 250-0 mph in 8.84 seconds
- 0-400-0 km/h in 31.49 seconds
- 0-250-0 mph in 32.48 seconds
Will we see the Regera take on the top speed record now held (maybe not so officially) by the Chiron? Or will it be the Jesko that takes the medal?
