Koenigsegg Agera RS’s Speed Record Caught On Video

Setting a production car top speed record was a momentous achievement by Koenigsegg, so one can’t blame them for milking it for as long as possible.

In a bid to ensure the Agera RS’s top speed record was immortalized in the best way possible, Koenigsegg teamed up with Swedish camera maker Hasselblad to capture some truly stunning images of the hypercar with the 100-megapixel HB H6D medium format digital camera.

Photographer Toshi Oku was the man behind the lens during the record-breaking run and has dropped five black-and-white images of the Koenigsegg. All of them are beautifully composed and show the Agera RS in its element before and after sprinting down a highway in Nevada at a two-way average of 277.9 mph.

Moreover, if you scroll below the image gallery, you can watch a behind-the-scenes video showing how the photographer managed to get the best out of the Swedish hypercar’s record attempt.
