When you think of fast cars, nothing really compares to the Bugatti Veyron SS, but there are others that come close. One such supercar is the Koenigsegg Agera R, and with a possible 1,115 horsepower under your right foot, you can clearly see why this car has potential. However, you have just 940 horsepower as standard.
The good thing is, to get all that extra power you do not need to pay any extra money for an engine upgrade or other modifications, just fill the fuel tank up with E85 bio-ethanol instead of 95-octane gasoline. Who would have thought that going for a fuel that is more fuel-efficient will give you a power increase of 175hp.
So let us take a look at a few of the main specs of the new Agera R and see how it compares to the Super Sport. Firstly and most importantly is the engine, the Koenigsegg has a 5-liter V8 with twin turbos, The Veryon has a 8-litre W12 16 cylinder engine with a quad turbo system — seems like Bugatti wins that round then.
0 to 60 mph for the Agera R is just 2.9 seconds, the Veyron does it in 2.5 seconds. The top seed of the SS Veyron is 267.856 mph, the Agera R is said to hit over 242mph — although we have no official figures just yet. So looking at things it looks as though the Bugatti Veyron SS, has all things covered, but you certainly pay the price for it. Yes the Koenigsegg Agera R will also come with a hefty price tag, but not as much as the Bugatti.
