What is this luxurious manufacturer about? Creating the most powerful car ever made by mankind. Basically, in a nutshell, Koenigsegg wants to produce the most road legal power rocket.

This is exactly what they’ve accomplished with the Koenigsegg Agera RS. A fast, high-performance car capable of breaking the top speed records. After 2017 and before now 2019, the Agera RS was hands down the fastest production car in the world after setting the new world record.

"The Koenigsegg Agera RS became the world’s fastest production car in early November 2017, breaking the previous record set by Bugatti’s Veyron Super Sport. Koenigsegg’s Agera RS became the world’s fastest production car this weekend, hitting an average speed of 277.9 mph over two runs, and a top speed of 284.55 mph. It broke the previous record of 267.9 mph set by Bugatti’s Veyron Super Sport in 2010. (via. Business Insider.com)."

Unfortunately, Hennessey’s Venom F5 has taken that top speed record (301 mph) and has put the 284 mph to bed already. Yet, besides the Hennessey monster, it still places as the second fastest car in the world since 2017.  This stipulates the unmatched power and precision in the Agera RS.

It even comes in a one-megawatt model, and you could get this just by spending an extra $250,000. Who wouldn’t spend that little extra for so much more power?
