Koenigsegg Agera R hits 249 mph on Gran Turismo Nurburgring


If you needed more proof as to how cool the new Koenigsegg Agera R is, here it is! During the recent Gran Turismo Events on the Nurburgring, the car was able to hit an impressive 401.6 km/h or 249 mph. According to the official statement: "when the awesome 1200 HP Koenigsegg Agera R passed the pit lane on Döttinger Höhe on Thursday everyone was amazed by the speed of the car."

And why shouldn’t they be; the Agera R used the whole 3.5 kilometer straight and hit an impressive 249 mph before braking at the bridge in Tiergarten.

The owner of the car, Bård Eker from Norway, said there were "no problems with stability under extreme speeds. The tarmac was a little bumpy while braking so It was quite exciting before the left turn."

Next to the Agera R, a total of 120 super cars attended the event, with the most popular being the Porsche GT3 , the Ferrari 458 , and the Lamborghini Gallardo .

It wasn’t even the best yet, and it still looked amazing with that speed! I guess its built and features helped too!

Whoa, 249 mph?! Maybe if I were to drive it at its fullest I’d lose control; it’s really so powerful and speedy.

This car has such high-tech components! I think that someday, I may create a car that can fly like this Koenigsegg Agera. What I like most is its doors and wheels.

This one was good on a race. 401.6 km/hr was a large number. I’m amazed!

Now, this is what you actually call “super”! I’m loving how powerful it is, and how it’s obvious from its design. Aside from that, Koenigsegg has even installed amazing features!

I never doubted Koenigsegg ever since their first production. I’m glad that Agera R astounded plenty of people as much as me.

After reading this, I want to experience how amazing it is but at the same time, I’m scared. Maybe I’ll just sit on the passenger’s seat, if ever there’s a chance. smiley

There is only one word poped up in my mind after reading the article-"BRAVO" !

Awesome!! And that straight is uphill...
