This new 1140hp Koenigsegg Agera R (on methanol?) makes about 950hp on pumpgas (Europe has better oct fuel than here?

Car and Driver tested the new Agera and thinks that it is more fun to drive than the Veyron SS and thinks this car may beat the Veyron's speed record as in theory the Agera R should go 273mph.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=RUfkyMCDYhU

At an airport the car had traction in second gear (paddle shifter) and ran 300kph/186mph.  They didn't specify so we have to think that they didn't do a timed or measured run.   :driving:

The Agera R weighs about 3200# so is comparable to the new Viper in weight and it seems to have the Gen 5 Viper headlights installed in the front as well.  No mention of the mileage it gets, but it has a Ford racing V8 engine so probably decent gas mileage ...   :headscratch:

Oh yah, the cost is just a bit over half of a Veyron SS.  The Agera cost just under 1.5 million dollars!

Bigget pet peave are the headlights.  They are horrible.  Look even worse on the Viper.  That being said Dodge actually ripped the style off from this car's concept.

I thought the other way around ...     :idk:  Saw the Viper headlights years ago, first time I've seen them on this car was this week
