218 mph Porsche 918 Spyder Chasing a Koenigsegg Agera R on Autobahn
The Porsche 918 Spyder is an incredible supercar that’s powered by a 887 HP, 4.6 liter V8 engine. For most places in the world, taking a Spyder car out to test its top speed is only a dream. Too much traffic, speed limits and so on make driving a supercar like this fast very frustrating.
But in Germany, it’s different. The German Autobahn road system is very well maintained and better yet – no speed limits!
Christian von Koenigsegg is a Swedish entrepreneur who developed the Koenigsegg Agera R supercar (photo above). This extremely fast car was built for speed. The stylish Agera R was made between 2011 and 2014. Only 18 production cars were ever built.
