The Koenigsegg Regera has just bagged the world record for the fastest-ever 0-400-0km run, beating, well… another Koenigsegg, actually.

For the last attempt, we need to rewind to 2017. Not content with Niklas Lilja’s thrilling 284mph Agera RS charge on a closed road in Nevada, Koenigsegg also clocked four other records with the car including 0-249-0mph/0-400-0kmh. Again, this was an improvement on its own record - the 33.29sec run lopping three seconds off the Swedish hypercar firm’s PB. This latest effort, using the Regera, saw the record tumble by (nearly) a further two seconds to 31.49sec.

Let’s compare this to, say, making a cup of tea. By the time you’ve got the bag in the cup and topped it up with boiling water, a Regera could have hit 249mph from rest and braked back to a standstill. Astonishing.

Koenigsegg Beat Its Own 0-400-0 Record By 2sec Using A Regera

The record-breaking feat was completed at Sweden’s Råda Air Base, with Koenigsegg factory test driver Sonny Persson behind the wheel. The 1478bhp, single-speed hypercar took 22.87sec to hit its RPM-limited top speed, and 8.62sec to brake to a standstill. All of this took place in 2048.46 metres, although Koenigsegg reckons there’s room for improvement. “In better conditions a total length of under an unbelievable 2000m should be fully achievable with the Regera,” it said.

Christian von Koenigsegg, as we know, does have a bit of a thing for breaking records. So, when asked about top speed in the video at the top of the page, he said: “that’s for another car - we have faster top speed cars of course”. At this point, Persson asks Koenigsegg to hold his beer and walks off.

Will Koenigsegg have a go at beating the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport’s 304mph Vmax? Perhaps with the Jesko? Watch this space…

This is all very nice, but… who cares? Like go and lap the Nurburgring, like all the other kids. These made up records mean nothing.

And Nurburgring laps mean something? You think some spoilt rich Arab kid will take his GT2 RS, SVJ or Pista do tracks? No. They’ll f$%k boi it in London, Dubai or LA. Only thing that matters for them is to look cool Except MR GT2 RS and Apex taxi’s 2RS you won’t see many more of them there.
