We all know Koenigsegg makes blisteringly fast exotic cars. The latest hyper machine from Sweden is the Agera R, and Koenigsegg wanted to see just how fast its two-door toy could go. With the help of an (unnamed) third party to verify the results and a Racelogic VBox, the Koenigsegg team set out to make some high-speed passes at its Sweden-based proving ground.

The results... are amazing:

0-300 km/h (186 mph) = 14.53 sec
0-200 mp/h = 17.68 sec

300-0 km/h = 6.66 sec
200-0 mp/h = 7.28 sec

0-300-0 km/h = 21.19 sec
0-200-0 mp/h = 24.96 sec

The Koenigsegg Agera R has impressive acceleration numbers, but we're equally stunned by how quickly the car can come to a stop. Koenigsegg says it has video of the runs, which will be released soon. For now, all you can do is stare at the photo above and make vroom vroom noises while imagining the G-forces at play.
