Swedish Sports Car Reaches Whopping 250 MPH!

News

"This is unbelievable."

Last week, Germany's Nurburgring Nordschleife -- a 13-mile, curvy race track for the most elite vehicles -- hosted a Gran Turismo event featuring all the big names in fast and fancy cars: Ferrari, Lamborigini, Porche. But one that really stood out was the Swedish Koenigsegg Agera R topping out at 250 MPH.

Business Insider reports that with its "notoriously twisty" nature on the course there isn't often room for the vehicles to "stretch their legs" except a one mile stretch at the end. This is where the 1,000 horsepower Koenigsegg had a chance to shine.

According to the Gran Turismo blog post on the event, the owner of the car, Bård Eker from Norwa,y said before he had to slow the vehicle down on at a bridge and the tarmac was a bit bumping making it "quite exciting before the left turn."

More than 120 "super cars" made it out on the track and Gran Turismo reported Dennis Noten from the Netherlands as saying "I have never, ever in my life seen so many nice cars in the same place. This is unbelievable."
