TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - Koenigsegg Agera R claims several new production car world records

Koenigsegg has set six new world records for production cars using a standard Agera R at its proving ground in Ängelholm, Sweden.

200-0mph = 7.28 seconds

0-300-0kph = 21.19 seconds
0-200-0mph = 24.96 seconds
