In 2005, the Bugatti Veyron became the world’s fastest production car, smashing the record set by the McLaren F1 all the way back in 1998. Five years later, the Veyron Super Sport improved on that benchmark, taking the record to 267.8 mph, a barrier that seemed unreachable for other carmaker. Seven years have passed since the Veyron Super Sport set its incredible record in 2010 and we may have a new candidate for the top spot. A Koenigsegg Agera RS achieved a two-way average speed of 277.9 mph in a closed road in Nevada, beating Bugatti’s record by more than 11 mph. Although this record has yet to be confirmed by the Guinness Book of records as of November 2017, it’s a good reminder that supercar automakers are looking to push performance to the limit with each new vehicles.
