If you feel lucky enough and have the courage to get in one of these cars, it can drive you to a top speed of 420 km/h.
The new model is powered by a twin-turbo 5.0-liter V8 mill that develops 1,115 hp at 6,900 rpm when running on E85 ethanol. The car can also run on 95 octane petrol, or 98 octane.
And now here is a list with what the equipment of the Agera R includes: dual airbags, detachable storable hardtop with glass roof, power windows, adaptive rear wing, adjustable pedals and steering column, Agera stitching, adjustable seats in rake and length, carbon ceramic brakes with Sport ABS, hydraulic lifting system, power steering, power brakes, extra 4 point seatbelts for track use.
