I'm terrified, elated, concentrating like crazy and convinced I'm about to have a massive accident. You unpick the edges of the Agera R's handling and performance like bomb disposal goes about mine-clearance: one stepat a time, and aware that any misstep will have you posted home in an urn. For me, it's too soft at the back, something Bård tells me is easily adjustable via the Triplex triple-spring and damper arrangement of the rear suspension - the horizontal middle spring is adjustable for preference, and the car has been set up to take some of the pressure off those skinny rears. But even though the car is ready to bite, I can't stop. Agera R addiction turns out to be quick, easy and dangerous.
