If you’re in the market for a hypercar that is a delicate balance of power and style, the Koenigsegg Agera R is likely near the top of your list. Of course, that’s only if you have a few million bucks in an off-shore account somewhere. Also \near the top of your list has to be the slightly more powerful Bugatti Veyron .
So, what if we take these two — a Veyron Vitesse and an Agera R — and we put them in a head-to-head, rolling-start race? Well, first of all, we would get to enjoy two mean-sounding hypercars, and we would also get to see which of the two is faster. Which do you think wins from a rolling start?
To help get a better idea of what we’re looking at, the Agera R is powered by a 5.0-liter, V-8 engine with twin turbochargers and with a total output of 1,140 horsepower. On the other hand, the Veyron Vitesse gets a W-16 engine that produces an output of 1,200 horsepower.
These numbers are a little too close to really make an educated guess, so have a look at the above video to find out.
