Reserved? No. And that’s what makes the Agera the most exciting supercar on earth, bar none, for me. I’d felt it compress itself onto the runway as the speed zapped past 100mph, felt the steering become even more positive and stable. With the optional ‘handling’ full-downforce wings fitted, this car develops so much downforce that it destroys its tyres, so it has to be speed restricted in that configuration. It is a wonderful, frighteningly fast machine and one not to be treated lightly.
