Speed matters

Swedish car firm Koenigsegg has broken the speed record for a production car after recording a two-way average speed of 277.9mph in the Agera RS (pictured). Driver Niklas Lilja did the run at Pahrump, Nevada, and the speed breaks the previous record holder, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, which recorded a speed just shy of 268mph in 2010.

Just last week the Hennessey Venom F5 was unveiled and it has a projected top speed by the company of over 300mph. If achieved, this would comfortably break the record, now held by the Koenigsegg.
