Wednesday Matinee: Porsche 918 Spyder and Koenigsegg Agera R Racing in 4K[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkC_ZZueQ6c&list=UUEe-43j9WUt6A0pHBppRJ_A[/youtube]
It’s one thing to read the acceleration figures of a modern supercar on a computer screen or a piece of paper; it’s another thing to see it pull off those numbers in the real world. And it’s yet another thing to see a supercar achieving its amazing numbers while being driven right next to another supercar that’s also being pushed to the max. That, apparently, is the thinking behind a series of videos being made by GTBOARD.com’s Gustav Traff and shot at the Papenburg test track in Germany. This particular one – shot in 4K, if you’ve got the beaucoup bandwidth needed to run it at that resolution – sees a Porsche 918 Spyder (equipped with the Weissach Package) going heads-up with a Koenigsegg Agera R. Does the hybrid Porsche have what it takes to handle the more powerful Koenigsegg? Well, if you had already watched the video, you’d know, wouldn’t you?
