Car with over 200 extra horsepower and a similar frontal area is faster in a straight line from a rolling start... Not exactly news is it...

Two lovely cars, but one of the most amateurish videos I've seen!

Given that the Agera can destroy a Veyron it is hardly surprising the porker comes a distant second... Rolling Eyes

did a shoot with a K once as well and it struck me as the complete antithesis of something like the 918

on the one hand you have one of the worlds finest most advancely engineered cars and on the other hand a spazzed up TVR where the only resident design know-how is the phrase "brute force"

I should probably have mentioned that you need to skip to about half way before you see the head to head... Get Me Coat

Thank you chimp, you just saved me 5 years... Grin

The 918 driver yelled something about "wrong gear", but then it doesn't seem that they repeated the test. Fairly pointless I think to not do a best-of-three or similar

Looks like Brute Force is the way forwards it made the 918 look a bit silly, no wheelspin no nothing just gone!! Whats brute force about that?

+1 Boys vs Men.

The K is a work of art IMO and every bit as special as the 918 Spyder. The vid doesn't lie. What the point of new tech if old tech destroys it? Bit blinkered IMO. I'd love to have a K Thumb

Have you driven one and had a good poke around inside and underneath one ?

Maybe they've come on a bit but the one i spent a day with was a complete piece of s***.

Probably fine if numbers are all that matters to you but personally, since working on cars, whats underneath and how things are done matters hugely to me.

The Zonda we had out on the same day made it look like a student project car.

No unfortunately not but read somewhere that the early cars were a bit airfix and the new ones they're making now rival Pagani for craftsmanship. Think there was buying guide in EVO. They reckoned the K would have its day and are very well priced (this was about 18 months ago so may have sky rocketed like other rare cars). I like them because they're daft! worship

Spazzed up TVR?

Maybe not!
