While the Swedish Bikini Team may actually have been American actresses hired for a beer commercial, the Koenigsegg Agera RS is pure Swede. That\u2019s the difference, but the similarity between the team and the car is striking\u2014both have the right curves and proportions in all the right places. Plus, the Agera is fast. Not fast easy, but fast fast.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nRecently, the Koenigsegg team took the Agera to a 17-kilometre section of closed road between Las Vegas and Pahrump, Nevada. Over the course of two runs, the Agera averaged 444.6 km\/h. Aided by a tailwind, the first run hit 458 km\/h. Coming back, and hampered by a headwind and an uphill gradient, the Agera clocked 436 km\/h. That beats out the previous record holder, a Hennessey Venom GT, which held the title at 435 km\/h, run at the Kennedy Space Center. (The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport came in at 434 km\/h running on a test track.)\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe Agera sports a 1015kW, 1369Nm version of the Koenigsegg RS\u2019s 5.0 liter, twin-turbo V8. It also features a removable roll-cage, but at 450 km\/h, what\u2019s the point? Not that Niklas Lilja, Koenigsegg\u2019s test driver, was phased by the speed. \u201cI wasn\u2019t nervous\u201d Niklas said. \u201cThe only hesitation was over the tyres, as you always know that something could happen.\u201d\r\n\r\nAs if straight ways weren\u2019t enough, the team looks to conquer cornering next. Considering just how curvaceous this car is, that\u2019s shouldn\u2019t be too hard.\r\nCheck it out\r\n\r\n\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
