Remember that video where a Bugatti Chiron, driven by Juan Pablo Montoya, set a world record for the fastest production car to complete the zero to 400km/h to zero (now famously known as 0-400-0) sprint?
If you have been living in a cave, here’s the video of it:
Sporting a colossal 8.0-litre W16 quad-turbo engine pumping out 1,103kW and 1,600Nm of torque, the Chiron demolishes the first 100km/h in just 2.3 seconds before reaching a top speed of 420km/h. It did the 0-400-0 run in an incredible 41.96 seconds.
No doubt, the Chiron is hyper fast. And just when we think that’s the end of it, Koenigsegg has come to the challenge.
The Koenigsegg Agera RS is the fastest production car the Swedish car maker currently makes. Equipped with the optional “1MW” package, the Agera RS tasked with this challenge produces, as the name suggests, 1MW of power and a monstrous 1,371Nm of torque. Yes it’s down on power compared to the Bugatti but the Koenigsegg is much lighter.
At an airstrip in Vandel, Denmark, it’s showdown time for the Agera RS. Is it faster than the Chiron in a 0-400-0 sprint? Watch the video below to find out.
