It's not every day you find yourself driving a Koenigsegg Agera RS, let alone in a convoy with two more on the way to lunch at Hooters! Thanks to @dan_am_I, I find myself at the wheel of the fastest car in the world, for an outing that doesn't feel real in the slightest. Come along for the ride to join me for the experience of a lifetime!
Kicking off from the mancave of @speedy_jeff, we line up the Koenigseggs, where on display we have the Agera RS Draken I'll be driving, as well as two further Agera RS models; @speedy_jeff's Valhall and @shinmikeyin's Phoenix. Then in addition are also both of the Agera Final Editions; @x_marc_the_spot's Vader and @dan_am_i's Thor as well as @speedy_jeff's CCX too that's currently having the Ghost Package upgrades.
The Koenigsegg Agera RS Draken is one of the 25 cars, that are holding the title of being the fastest car in the world with a top speed of 277.9mph performed in late 2017 in Nevada. That comes thanks to 1MW of power; or 1,360ps/1,341bhp from the 5.0l TT V8 and a lightweight carbon fibre construction mixed with a maximum of 485kg of downforce in the normal specification at 155mph/250km/h.
Following the various models of the Agera, including Agera S, Agera R, One:1, then the Agera RS was only followed by the two Agera FEs based on the platform. To have technically 5 of the 27 cars all present together is just something incredible to behold, to drive one of them in convoy with 2 others is even more so.
After meeting up at the mancave, it's time to get the cars ready to head on out where we go for a drive over towards Hooters to have lunch! Onboard the Draken it feels unbelievable to be looking at the two other Koenigseggs on the road in convoy as we make our way there, while getting a small taster for what the car can offer.
