Per the standard format for setting a land speed record, Lilja made two runs in opposite directions within the space of an hour to eliminate the effects of gradients and wind, with the two recorded speeds then averaged. The average of 277.9mph secured the record. The above video shows just that and features Koenigsegg factory driver Niklas Lilja hitting almost 300 miles per hour. On one run Lilja reached 271.2 miles per hour, and on the other he reached 284.6 miles per hour.
The auto was driven by Koenigsegg's test driver Niklas Lilja on a closed road, topping out at 457.9km/h in the more favourable direction. After recently toppling Bugatti's impressive zero to 249 miles per hour to zero record, the team tackled the overall top speed record in Nevada. At the time, it narrowly took the record from the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, which had recorded a 269.86mph time.

It recently announced that the successor to the Venom GT, the 1600-bhp Venom F5, could break the 300-mph limit. Earlier in October, Koenigsegg took another record from Bugatti, smashing the 0-400-0 km/h record.
But that's not the only record the Agera RS has broken. Its 5-liter twin-turbo V8 provides it with 1,160 horsepower. The tires that were used are Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, and Michelin reps were on hand to be sure everything was good with the tires.
