It seemed not too long ago that the Bugatti Veyron was once the king of the track, notching neck-breaking speed of 267 miles per hour.
The Hennessey Venom GT soon came in and claimed the throne, boasting an unofficial world record of 271 mph.
Both speedsters, however, appear to have been left in the dust by a new Swedish supercar, as the Koenigsegg Agera RS recently recorded an ultra-impressive 284 mph at top speed.
According to Koenigsegg’s official Twitter page, the remarkable vehicle was manned by fearless factory driver Niklas Lilja, who completed the feat on a closed 11-mile stretch of Nevada Highway, close to Las Vegas.
In an interview with Top Gear, Lilja revealed that he kept things steady to begin with and methodically built up momentum for the recored-breaking run.
