Koenigsegg Agera R Humbles Porsche 918 Spyder In Its Home Turf

Hypercars can differ greatly in performance, even if they all slot into the same category. Take the Porsche 918 Spyder and Koenigsegg Agera R, for example.

The Porsche 918 Spyder was unveiled in 2013 as a technical tour de force with industry-leading hybrid powertrain technology and a motorsport-derived, naturally aspirated V8 engine.

While the LaFerrari and McLaren P1 may have got the pick from most driving enthusiasts, the 918 Spyder has proven itself to generally be the quickest of the trio around a racetrack, thanks in no small part to its all-wheel drive and Porsche’s technical wizardry.

In a straight line, the Porsche 918 Spyder can rocket to 300 km/h (186 mph) in a blistering 20.9 seconds. That’s far quicker than most automobiles need to approach 200 km/h (124 mph). However, compared to a vehicle like the Koenigsegg Agera R, a 0-300 km/h time in the 20-second range is slow.

In fact, the Agera R posted a 0-300 km/h time of 14.53 seconds back in 2011. What’s more, the Swedish machine can run to 300 km/h and brake to zero in 21.19 seconds, barely any slower than the time needed for the 918 to simply reach 300 km/h.

It’s therefore little surprise that when a Koenigsegg Agera R driver came across a 918 speeding down the German autobahn, they decided to have a little fun and show the German just how fast a car can be.

    I am still amazed how it’s legal to go with 345+ kmh on the German Autobahn, with normal traffic in the next lane…

    • Mikestroh

      Because German drivers take driving seriously unlike Americans that drive while distracted because they can’t keep their eyes peeled away from their cell phones. Simple as that.

        No they don’t, they can just turn out rigth in front of you.

        Better than americans but not good.

      • Auf Wiedersehen

        I am American and I 100% agree with this statement, BUT the rest of the world are also glued to their cell phones. Watch YouTube for millions of examples. I think the consequences in Germany are far worse than the U.S. for distracted driving. When drivers licenses are much harder to get, as they are in Europe, they are much more appreciated. Most in the U.S. have forgotten it’s a privilege not a right at age 16.
