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

But, as I start to acclimatise to the magnitude of the experience, it becomes apparent the Agera is more than a simple warhead. The steering, oddly light at low speeds, is quick and intuitive at pace, imbuing the Agera with surprising nimbleness for a two-metre wide hypercar. The chassis set-up couldn't ever be described as forgiving, but the near-race-spec suspension soaks up the hideous cracks in the runway concrete with astonishing ease. No, the Agera can't match the Zonda - or, indeed, the Veyron - for the sheer ease and usability of its power. It doesn't try to: the Koenigsegg experience is far more visceral than that. But it is also much more sophisticated than its fission-spec powertrain initially suggests.
