Sweden-based hypercar builder Koenigsegg works hard on surpassing the international speed record of 278 mph (447 km/h) its own Agera RS vehicle set in the fall of 2017. If successful, the title of the fastest-going car in the world should pass to the new Koenigsegg Regera.

According to some sources, the company is currently developing a new ECU software that would enable the car to accelerate past its factory-set limit of 255 mph (410 km/h) and sprint 0-250 mph (0-400 km/h) in breathtaking 20 seconds.

The Koenigsegg Regera comes powered by a hybrid drivetrain consisting of a five-liter twin-turbo gasoline engine and three electric motors. Its total output is estimated at 1,500 hp (1,119 kW) and 2,000 Nm (1,475 lbft) of torque. Even in its stock form (if the word even applies), it sprints 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 2.8 seconds.

Let’s wait and see whether the Regera can go past 278 mph (447 km/h) and set a new record.
