    Not sure if anyone will find this interesting, but I sure do.
    Last week Koenigsegg descended on Spring Mountain and used it as it's base of operations for their record runs on HWY 160 on the last stretch you drive from Las Vegas to Pahrump.

    They set 5 records using a customer's Agera RS running on Michelin Super Sport Cup 2 tires.

    Full article here from Koenisegg: Koenigsegg Agera RS Achieves Multiple Production Car World Speed Records - Koenigsegg

    There are 8 Agera RS's in the US and 4 of them showed up for the event.

    One owners videos:

    They let them run on the closed highway also, since they had it for the day.

    That is pretty awesome, but my car could do that all day going in reverse! :p

    But seriously, that would be quite the run! Amazing machines!

    Great video Mike, thanks for sharing. Love those roads out there, straight to the horizon on some of them.

    Remember back in the day when journalists used to do the 0-100-0 tests and that was the standard of performance? :rofl:

    I was initially pretty surprised that he wasn't even wearing a helmet.... Then I thought... does it really matter if you crashed at 400kph.....
    I won't post it as it's quite graphic but there is a youtube of a Huracán 300+ crash on the autobahn. Just nasty.
