Video: Ferrari 458 Italia Challenges a Koenigsegg Agera R

When your ride packs a high-revving, 570HP V8 matched to a dual-clutch transmission for a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) time in 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 320 km/h (200 mph) then you’re inclined to believe that you’re the king of the road.

But as fast as your ride may be, there will always be something faster. And as the owner of a Ferrari 458 Italia found out, the Koenigsegg Agera R that was launched earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show is one of them.

This is not surprising given that, on paper, it smokes the Italia, sprinting from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 2.9 seconds thanks to the 1115HP courtesy of its 5.0-liter V8.

Of course, with a price tag in excess of $US 1.4 million, the Agera R makes the 458 look like a bargain…
