      We see supercars and hypercars hitting the track all the time. While the results are obviously spectacular, you have to keep in mind that the overall driving experience is mostly comprised of time spent on public roads. So how exactly does it feel to live with a hypercar?
Let's take the Koenigsegg Agera R, for example. With 1,140 HP, this car holds multiple acceleration and braking records. For instance, it can play the 0 to 300 KMH game in 14.5 seconds while the 0 to 200 MPH sprint takes 17.68 seconds. In terms of deceleration, the reversed version of the quests mentioned above take 6.66 seconds and 7.28 seconds, respectively.

Returning to the everyday life aspects we discussed in the intro, the video below perfectly demonstrates the Swedish machine's character.

The footage was caught while the Agera R was on its way to a racetrack. The video, which comes from GT Board, shows the Koenigsegg traveling on the German Autobahn.

There are plenty of question to be answered here, and we'll give you some examples:

  • How good is the ride? Sure, the Autobahn is smooth, but everybody who's had these German highways under his or her wheels knows the asphalt is not perfect.

  • Can you engage in casual conversation at high speeds?

  • How does the general atmosphere in such a machine feel like?

The clip offers all the answers, as the driver decides to use all the force of that forced-fed V8, taking the Agera R all the way up to 215 MPH (340 KM/H). As for the role of the passenger, this is played by the man filming the drive.
