This video is shot primarily from inside the car. There are no sweeping shots as it takes a corner or lets loose in a straightaway.
It’s all about experiencing the power and adrenaline rush of being inside the car as it hits deliciously fast speeds in the hands of a skilled driver who won’t wrap the thing around a tree.
The official record is held by the Nissan GT-R, which posted a time of 2:18:36. Koenigsegg’s data-logging system which is attached to the car, recorded 2:17:57. Even then, they managed this with little prior exposure to the track, no special setup for the car, and a passenger riding shotgun. Just imagine what this car could do if Koenigsegg truly aimed for a record.
