Koenigsegg is officially amazing, at least according to the Guinness Book of World Records. The well-known record-keeping organization has granted the Koenigsegg Agera the record of quickest 0-300-0 kilometers per hour by a two-seat production car. The time? A scant 21.19 seconds, recorded at the Angeholm Airfield in Sweden on September 2, 2011, with Robert Serwanski behind the wheel.

That's just over 186 miles per hour, then back to a complete stop, in 21 seconds. Yowza. That's not the only impressive feat accomplished that day by the Agera, though it is the only one that was certified as a world record by Guinness. For the record, Koenegsegg's masterpiece scooted to 300 km/h in 14.53 seconds on its way to 200 mph in 17.68 seconds. It can stop with equal alacrity, taking an evil 6.66 seconds to halt from 300 km/h and 7.28 from 200 mph.

The final stat is arguably the most impressive: 0-200 mph and back to 0 in just 24.96 seconds. Want to know what's even better than that? The fact that it was all recorded on video. Click past the break to see for yourself.

      I love this thing. It's a supercar that looks like a supercar, not a bloated insect. It reminds me of the supercars from the "mainstream" manufacturers back in the '90's, where they looked menacing and had real road presence. Today they're almost getting "soft" and even somewhat common. Koenigsegg is one of the few whose cars look as menacing as they perform.

        I think 90s supercars look brilliant. They hold their design really well.

        Funny, the basic design of an Agera is almost exactly the same as the original CC. Such a powerful menacing shape need not be tampered with.

      Thats really impressive, but I don't like the idea of making up new records to set. Hopefully now that this is certified in the book it will become the new standard of supercar acceleration/braking, instead of some other car getting certified as the fastest to "drive a mile and back" or something...

      It's too bad most people only look at 0-60 times or top speed to determine their favorite car that they will probably never own. Cars like this are mostly ignored, and I think that's a shame.

      If I was the test driver and all those test were done on the same day, I think my brain would be mashed potatoes and my eyeballs ejected out of my sockets.

      Jesus, the supercar game is really getting intense. The McLaren F1 reigned as champ for roughly a decade before the competition caught up and eventually overtook it. The Bugatti barely stopped production on the Veyron a few months ago and it's already getting its ass handed to it by the new kids on the block.

        The true King of spped of the McLaren F1 time was the Dauer 962 LeMans!!! The McLaren F1 was only the champ of the guinness book of records ignoring all its true competition..t Government observed officel tested at the same VW track as the McLaren F1 and Bugatti Veyron the Dauer 962 LeMans set this records topspeed 404km/h (250.48mph) 0-62mph 2.6s 0-125mph 6.9s even today the Dauer would destroy most modern Hypercars...

          Those are not really records. Four years earlier, in 1988 the Callaway Sledgehammer reached 254.7mph driven by John Lingenfelter. http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=5&ved=0CDMQtwIwBA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3Dm8dI-47Z2hI&ei=bDHXToS1Oob5gge18_n7Dg&usg=AFQjCNGQb0tCasCw1ntrPxDSyCkr8xr8QA
