Koenigsegg Agera R Breaks the 400 Km/h barrier at The Ring

The Koenigsegg Agera R is an astonishingly fast machine. After breaking six land speed records now we have the chance to see it break the 400 Km/h (250 mph) barrier in motion at the Nürburgring Nordschleife pit straight. Just in case you are lazy enough to not click this link, here's a reminder of the Agera R's technical specs: Power comes from a bespoke turbocharged V8 producing 1115 Hp and 1200 Nm of torque. The car weights just 1330 kg (2932 pounds). That allows it to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds. The 300 Km/h barrier is broken in just 14.53 seconds, more than two seconds faster than the Veyron SS.

Now i'm just wondering if the Agera R is capable of improving the recorded top speed of 402 Km/h knowing that the pit straight of the green hell is a little narrow and bumpy...
