The Koenigsegg Agera RS broke the record of Bugatti Chiron at an airfield in Vandel, Denmark. The performance test of the car was taken when an owner of Agera RS asked the company to verify the performance of the vehicle in comparison to other manufacturers.

The record of the car was set on October 1, however, till now the company has not officially published the top speed of the vehicle. The performance test of the car was scheduled between 30 September and 2 October but was canceled due to bad weather.
