The Koenigsegg Agera is a mid-engined sports car produced by Swedish car manufacturer  Koenigsegg  since  2011. It is a successor to the Koenigsegg CCX/CCXR. The name comes from the Swedish verb ‘agera’ which means “to act” or in imperative form “(You) act!”.

Hennessey is the top class model of Venom GT. Coming second in the world’s fastest cars category is the Hennessey Venom GT, which is a relatively new name in the industry, but has generated quite a buzz in a short period of time. The car is based on a modified Lotus Exige and has a max speed of 270 mph (just 3 mph less than the Koenigsegg). As a result, the vehicle will terrify anyone upon first glance, as it is purely a beast.

Packed with a mighty 7.0 Liter Twin-Turbocharged V8 Engine, the Venom GT is capable of generating an outstanding and dazzling horsepower of 1,244 and torque of 1,155 pound-feet, hence enabling the car to fly from halt to 62 mph within 2.8 seconds only and accelerate from zero to 200 mph in 14.51 seconds (all thanks to the intercooler upgrades and single-clutch shift system to ensure faster shift times).

All this power is packaged in an overwhelming and sexy interior and exterior design that can be yours for approximately US $1.2 million. Therefore, the vehicle is relatively cheaper than the Koenigsegg Agera R and delivers a similar performance, only 3 mph less! Which one is the better vehicle? Well, that we can only find out when the two cars RACE!
