Here in the United States, going 218 mph on a public road would have you thrown in jail in a heartbeat. But, on certain parts of the Autobahn, the only thing limiting your speed is the car you’re driving.
GTBoard.com, one of our favorite YouTube channels, uploaded a video of a high speed run on the Autobahn today, involving a Porsche 918 Spyder and a Koenigsegg Agera R. In the video you can see the speedometer of the 918 reaching up to 350 km/h, which equates to 217.48 mph, as it chases down the Swedish hypercar.
Just for fun, here are some quick stats on both cars that were partaking in this exciting Autobahn run.
Torque: 944 lb-ft
Top Speed: 214 mph (according to Porsche)
0-60 mph: 2.5 seconds

(Note: Attempting to reach speeds this high is a dangerous endeavor, and should not be attempted unless on a closed course under professional supervision.
