Veyron

2,340 horsepower. That’s the total combined power output of the Bugatti Veyron Vitesse and Koenigsegg Agera R. Since the Veyron was introduced in 2005, it has become the poster child for flat-out speed. However within the last 10 years a few other manufacturers have stepped up to offer a challenge. One of the biggest guns comes in the form of the Koenigsegg Agera R. This is a car with 1,140 hp, a top speed of 273 mph and a drag coefficient of 0.33 to 0.37 with adaptable rear wings which makes it incredibly slippery. The big question though is, which car is faster – the Bugatti Veyron Vitesse or the Koenigsegg Agera R. Click through to find out.

Who Knew The Chinese Had A Super Car Club?

Chinese Super Car Club

“Made in China”. That’s a sentence that is unfortunately seen on most of the goods we have over here in the United States. As Americans, we see that, sigh, and then drop our heads wishing that we produced all of our own goods and services. Apparently though that phrase is paying off big time for the Chinese as they’ve got a car club over there that rivals just about anything I’ve ever seen stateside. Pagani, Ferrari, Bugatti, Koenissegg, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Porsche and Mercedes-Benz are all present and accounted for and hot damn if these guys don’t drive the piss out of them as well. Stored in a warehouse somewhere in China, the value of these automobiles together rivals the yearly economy of some small countries. So, next time you see a label that reads “Made in China”, don’t worry because it’s helping keep our favorite super car companies in business.

Koenigsegg CCX wrecked on Long Island, NY

Koenigsegg CCX Wreck

There is no question that owning a car like the $500,000 Koenigsegg CCX would be a true privilege. Sometimes however being privileged isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. For instance, if the average Joe gets into a fender bender with their run of the mill Toyota Camry, the odds of anyone giving a crap are slim to none. Stack a half-million dollar super exotic though and well, everyone and their brother is going to pick-up on it regardless if it was the owners fault or not. I suppose some people see it as justice for the little guy when something beautiful and expensive gets wreck, whereas they should just see it for what it is… a simple car accident. I’ve got to say though that it does kind of hurt the eyes to see such a beautiful piece of machinery stuffed in the woods like that.

Thule Makes $28,000 Bike Rack For Koenigsegg Agera R

Koenigsegg Agera R Thule Rack

For some, the new 1.6 millon dollar Koenigsegg Agera R is the ultimate hypercar. It has a 5.0-liter V8 with twin-turbo superchargers that help it produce an astounding 1115 hp and 885 lb-ft of torque. It goes 0-62 mph in under 3-second, 0-124 mph in under 7-seconds and has a theoretical top speed of 273 mph making it one of, if not the fastest production based automobile on the planet. While all of this speed and technology is great, the Koenigsegg Agera R is not without its flaws. For example it only gets about 8 mpg and there isn’t even enough storage space to store a pack of chewing gum. The fuel consumption is unfortunately out of our hands, as for the storage thing, well let’s just say that we’ve found a way for all you prospective owners out there to haul your goodies along with you for the ride.

The 10 Most Expensive Cars, According To Forbes

2011 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

The Bugatti Super Sport tops the list.

If you ever see me giving stock tips on RideLust, be afraid. I’m not a “play the stock market” kind of guy, and every spare dollar I’ve ever made has gone into cars, bikes, racing or travel (usually centered around cars, bikes or racing). With that in mind, you have a certain right to be skeptical when Forbes publishes a list of the most expensive cars. First, it’s only a snapshot in time, as new supercars are introduced every year. Next, there’s no clarification on where the prices are from, so I assume they’re a manufacturer’s list price, translated in to U.S. dollars. That’s hardly an accurate representation, as cars typically sell for higher prices in the EU than they do in the United States. Finally, any car’s price is based on supply and demand: since the entire run of Bugatti Veyron Super Sports has been spoken for, good luck finding one at the list price of $2.6 million.
