Lau also said that, since the event wasn't a tightly embargoed automaker event, some misinformation was leaking throughout the day - like a reported top speed of 291 miles per hour.

Per the standard format for setting a land speed record, Lilja made two runs in opposite directions within the space of an hour to eliminate the effects of gradients and wind, with the two recorded speeds then averaged.

Factory driver Niklas Lilja, who completed the run, said: 'I wasn't nervous.

The hypercar was driven on two runs in opposite directions of an 11-mile stretch of closed public highway between Las Vegas and Pahrump. At the time, it narrowly took the record from the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, which had recorded a 269.86mph time.

Hennessey is claiming its new Venom F5 may be able to break 300 miles per hour. The vehicle beat the previous record of 267.8 miles per hour, set by Bugatti's Veyron Super Sport in 2010. With 1,600 horsepower on tap, the Hennessey's actually the most powerful here.

Koenigsegg told Jalopnik the run was done on Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, the same tires delivered to customers, and that Michelin reps were on-hand to make sure everything went ok. They had the full blessing of Koenigsegg. Earlier in October, Koenigsegg took another record from Bugatti, smashing the 0-400-0 km/h record. It's so fast in fact that it can accelerate from 0-249mph and back to 0 in just 36.44 seconds.

To hit these incredible speeds, the Agera RS is built using a lightweight carbon fiber body and an aluminum honeycomb monocoque structure.
