When it comes to hypercars, the inclined connoisseur can hardly ignore the Swedish brand Koenigsegg. Started as a newcomer a good decade ago, Koenigsegg quickly established himself in the Champions League of sports cars. Today Koenigsegg is immediately mentioned in the same breath as Bugatti or McLaren, and with the officially fastest road sports car in the world, which set this record in Nevada, USA, in 2017. And the record vehicle is now called the so-called Art Car auctioned for a good cause on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Festival of Children Foundation. Thus, the entire proceeds should benefit disadvantaged children and flow into social projects.
447 km / h for a hallelujah!
But let's take a closer look at the record-breaking vehicle with its incredible top speed of average 447 km / h holds the official Guinness World Record for production vehicles. Other manufacturers have already tried their hand at the world record, however failed For example, the American sports car manufacturer SSC with their hypercar called Tuatara was as pitiful as it was sensational when they tried to steal this record from Koenigsegg.
Only his potential successor named him can dispute the record Koenigsegg Jesko, which has a top speed of over 500 km / h is said to be. But even if the Jesko should raise the bar for road vehicles, it can still be said that the Koenigsegg Agera RS "Pomegranate" the fastest art car in the world. At least until one in Sweden comes up with the idea of turning a Jesko into an art object as well.
The artful Graphic of the "Pomegranate" is, in our opinion, strongly reminiscent of Asian anime and manga series, and makes the huge hypercar appear rather tame and peaceful. The best thing about the vehicle, however, is that car fans can see the unique work of art in person, as the vehicle can be admired in the Ancillary Studio in Costa Mesa, California.
1 megawatt of power catapults the hypercar forward!
Of course, such a record-breaking car also needs a lot of power, because with a small engine, 447 kilometers per hour are not possible. That is why the Koenigsegg Agera RS “Pomegranate” has incredible precision 1.000 kilowatts Performance, which is converted from 1.360 HP is equivalent to. The racetrack monster draws its bear power from one 5 liter V8 petrol engine with two turbochargers, which is installed as a mid-engine. And the power to weight ratio is also more than impressive as it's roughly the value 1:1 having. Such key data is normally only known from super sports motorcycles, but not from automobiles. Koenigsegg is setting new standards in terms of performance, and also the sprint from 0 to 300 kilometers per hour, in which just once 14,53 seconds passing away is like being from another planet.
Our Summary to the Koenigsegg Agera RS "Pomegranate":
