Factory driver Niklas Lilja has reached a top speed of 284.55 mph (457.9 km/h) during his second run, taming some 1360 horsepower in the process.

For the first time in 12 years, the fastest production car crown belongs to a vehicle that doesn’t wear a Bugatti badge. The Agera RS bests Bugatti’s record of 265.7 mph by over 12 mph—a record set by the French firm’s Veyron Super Sport back in 2010.

The same model also recently bested the Bugatti Chiron’s acceleration record, reaching 249 mph (400 kph) from a standstill and braking back down to a stop in just 36.44 seconds.
