But Koenigsegg's record may not last long as two rival hypercars look set to pose a serious challenge to the Swedish hypercar's title of world's fastest auto. Of course, the video is not almost as thrilling as what it must have felt like to hit those speeds, but it is interesting to see the 270-plus miles per hour. Broken, too, was the unofficial street-legal vehicle speed record of 435.31 km/h (270.49 mph) set by the Hennessey Venom GT in 2014.

Responsible for sending the power to the pavement was reportedly a set of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2 tires - the standard tire for the Agera - which seemed to survive the high-speed stint without a hitch.
