There's truth in the fact that even some of the very fastest hypercars are actually pretty easy to drive, even in extremis. The Veyron - even the 1,200bhp SuperSport - may be an engineering masterpiece, but it can, at times, feel like an Audi TT for all the competency you actually require to get the best from it. And while that makes them very usable for even the most hamfisted and inattentive trustafarians, it also pokes the Agera R into sharp perspective: this is simply not an easy car to drive to its full potential.
