The test was carried out on a piece of arrow-straight road that spanned no less than 11 miles between Las Vegas and Pahrhump, and was closed to the public during the test. Last month, the Agera RS pipped the Bugatti Chiron by performing the world's fastest ever zero to 400km/h to zero acceleration and braking run for a production vehicle, performing that feat in 36.44 seconds. In early October, Koenigsegg shattered the 0-400-0 km/h world record set by the Bugatti Chiron just weeks earlier, with a 1,360-hp (1,014-kW) Agera RS destined for a customer in the US.
On its first run the Koenigsegg registered a top speed of 271.2mph, beating the Veyron even while battling an incline and oncoming winds.
George HW Bush Openly Criticizes Trump in New Book
The younger Bush had earlier described Donald Trump's inauguration speech in March as "some weird s**t". Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication.
Although not yet officially confirmed, the Koenigsegg run was recorded and verified by Racelogic.
That record had been held by a Hennessey Venom GT which was recorded at 270.5mph in 2014.
Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner hands over documents to Special Counsel
Although Kushner's name has not yet officially come up in Mueller's investigation, it appears it is about to happen soon. Specifically, he questioned his role in the firings of Michael Flynn and James Comey , sources told " Vanity Fair ".
The video showed the two runs of the Koenigsegg Agera RS en route to its world land speed record. The tires that were used are Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, and Michelin reps were on hand to be sure everything was good with the tires. How long the mark will stand for, however, is anyone's guess with Henessey having just unveiled its new Venom F5 hypercar amid claims of 300mph capability and Bugatti having yet to put the Chiron to the test in anger.
Sure, the V10 Italian exotic may only have half the power of an Agera RS with the Megawatt engine, but the Sant'Agata Bolognese machine has something that the Swede is missing, namely a naturally aspirated heart.
Shin Megami Tensei V is confirmed for the Nintendo Switch
It certainly fits in with the legacy-the series began on the Famicom, and the last three games have been exclusive to the 3DS. There was no release date confirmed for it yet aside from the listed platform being Nintendo Switch .
