GTboard recently managed to gather the world’s two fastest ‘convertibles’ , the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse and Koenigsegg Agera R, together for a truly extraordinary number of rolling drag races which saw the two hypercars pitted against each other.
The video shows two different races from a selection of different camera angles with the race kicking off at 50 km/h and the two accelerating to 350 km/h and beyond. While the top speed of the Koenigsegg Agera R hasn’t been proven, the following video shows that despite being slightly less powerful than the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, its significantly lighter overall weight means it walks away with victory in both races quite easily.
In one race in fact, by the time the Bugatti Veyron has reached 340 km/h, the Koenigsegg Agera R is down the road and travelling at 363 km/h!
On the spec sheet, the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse features an 8.0-litre quad-turbocharged W16 engine delivering 1200 hp at 6400 rpm and 1500 Nm of torque between 3000 and 5000 rpm. By comparison, the Agera R and its 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8 pumps out 1140 hp on E85 ethanol.
