Ride onboard a Koenigsegg as it hits 457.94kph

Video: new footage from inside the Agera RS during its high speed run last month. Turn it up

Eerily, there is not much drama in this little video, released today by the good folks over at Koenigsegg. Noise, yes. Lots of it good. Thunderous. Pleasing.

Though eerie because the footage showcases the Agera RS racing up to 457.94 in Nevada.

Remember last month when Koenigsegg claimed five speed records along a section of closed road? Yeah, this is the onboard footage of the highest speed run of the day, the Agera RS hitting 457.94kph.

This was achieved during its north-westerly run, from the Las Vegas end of Nevada toward Pahrump. The south-easterly run clocked 436.44kph, meaning it averaged out at 447.19kph.

That of course, makes the Koenigsegg Agera RS the fastest production car in the world.

The other records you can read about here, which includes the fact that the RS smashed Bugatti’s 0-400kph-0 time (by eight seconds). In any case, the footage below would never suggest that driver Niklas Lilja was gunning for an outright top speed. More a Sunday drive.

Like we said, eerie…
