The United States is home to interstates and highways with plenty of speed limits and restrictions. Over in Europe, they have a thing called the Autobahn, where speed limits are rare and supercars can test their top speeds.
Today, GTBoard.com uploaded a video of a Koenigsegg Agera R testing its top speed on the Autobahn as it raced against the Porsche 918 Spyder. We don’t know how fast the car was going, but a related video from last year was uploaded from the 918’s perspective and the description noted speeds of 218 mph.
Would you go this fast on the Autobahn? Let us know in the comments below.
