Koenigsegg Agera N Vs. Koenigsegg CCX: Video
Runways and supercars go together like Jeremy Clarkson and a hot meal – they just work.
Hence, we have events like Vmax200. Roping in some of the fastest cars on the planet, this UK-based acceleration fest has been running strong since 2002, playing host to countless exotics and top speed monsters through the years. It’s one of the few places where the full range of high-dollar mega machinery can actually use all that potential lurking under a heavy right foot, which means it’s exactly the kind of place you’d expect to see YouTube horsepower-hound Shmee150.
With his trusty camcorder at this side, Shmee was on point to record the battle of the winged Swedish meatballs, as two of Koenigsegg’s finest lined up for a showdown. In one lane, we have the CCX, an older model with a blown 4.7-liter V-8 producing 800 horsepower and 679 pound-feet of torque. Acceleration figures include a 0-to-62 mph time of 3.2 seconds, 0-to-124 mph time of 9.8 seconds, and a top speed in excess of 245 mph.
In the other lane, there’s the dark horse of the race: the one-off Agera N. Information is hard to find on the N, but from what I can tell, it’s basically a modified Agera S.
Compounding the complexity, we find ourselves with a wet track and live flagger dropping his arms for the off. With mere mortals behind the wheel, getting a decent reaction time and traction at the launch will be difficult at best.
So then – who will win? Let the bench racing flame war begin.
