2010 TopGear Awards: Hypercar of the Year
TG infiltrates Chinese air base with weapons-grade Koenigsegg Agera

The lead officer is pressing buttons now, twiddling the Agera's bespoke knobs with interest. I glance over at photographer Joe, who shrugs. I cross my fingers the officer doesn't know how to operate a flappy-paddle gearbox. Do planes have flappy-paddle gearboxes? I'm fairly sure planes don't have flappy-paddle gearboxes. After a couple more minutes of pressing, clicking and failing to engage any gear, he harrumphs and extricates himself from the car with rather more elegance than I managed. He gestures to his squad, who follow him off down the runway in quicktime. When you have your pick of a few hundred jets, maybe a 250mph Agera looks a bit boring.
