Koenigsegg is officially amazing, at least according to the Guinness Book of World Records. The well-known record-keeping organization has granted the Koenigsegg Agera the record of quickest 0-300-0 kilometres per hour by a two-seat production car. The time? A scant 21.19 seconds, recorded at the Angeholm Airfield in Sweden on September 2, 2011, with Robert Serwanski behind the wheel.
That feat requires the Agera to reach 300 km/h from a standstill, then back to a complete stop, in 21 seconds. Yowza. That's not the only impressive accomplishment that day by the Agera, though it is the only one that was certified as a world record by Guinness. For the record, Koenegsegg's masterpiece scooted to 300 km/h in 14.53 seconds. It can stop with equal alacrity, taking an evil 6.66 seconds to halt from 300 km/h.
The final stat is arguably the most impressive: 0-322 km/h and back to 0 in just 24.96 seconds. Want to know what's even better than that? The fact that it was all recorded on video. Click past the break to see for yourself.
