Koenigsegg, the Swedish dream car maker has claimed that its beautiful Agera R supercar has officially broken not less than six land speed records. So before I post the times for you, here's a short reminder of the car's technical specs: It is powered by a bespoke turbocharged V8 engine tuned to produce 1,115 Hp and 1,200 Nm of torque. All that power is sent to the rear wheels and the total weight of the supercar is just 1330 kg (2932 pounds).

Here's the list of the six new records which are still subject to confirmation by the Guinness Book of Records:

0 to 300 Km/h (0-186 mph) = 14.53 sec (Veyron SS: 16.7 seconds)
0 to 320 Km/h (0-200 mph) = 17.68 sec
300 to 0 Km/h = 6.66 sec
320 to 0 Km/h = 7.28 sec
0- 300-0 Km/h = 21.19 sec
0- 320-0 Km/h = 24.96 sec

The Agera R does the 0 to 100 Km/h sprint in 2,9 seconds so it doesn't go off the line faster than the Veyron SS but it beat it by more than 2 seconds to 300 Km/h (186 mph). With 2,900 pounds It weights 1,000 pounds less than the Veyron SS which promises some much better handling and it has a much more beautiful and a smonther body. You can contemplate the body of the swedish supercar in the gallery below and you can also see it motion in the video after the jump.
