    Don't get me wrong its the fastest car in the world but electric is going to make it look normal soon (how soon nobody knows), go google the gutted tesla's that the guys are racing, pulled out all the seats added some more batteries and takes the guys money each time. Would love to see it against the chirion in a drag, its already beaten the gtrs and the rest.

    I read yesterday on Autocar that a Kenigsegg Ageera S was just over 5 seconds faster than the Chiron......

    I suspect that, sadly, very few hypercars ever drive that much.

    That plot of speed and RPM is really interesting. At around 250 km/h it suddenly starts to rev up slower and the acceleration also decreases. It cannot be a sudden increase in drag. Are the high gears longer?

    I wonder if that Polo will be accused of hogging the right lane...

    That's the difference. One can't really compare the two.
    The one is a race car with a sports car body shell, the other is a super sports car.
    eg (visible) roll cage absent on the one.

    Agreed that the Koen..zzzz is an awesome car!

    I wonder, if they change the gearing on a F1 car (to be able to reach 400km/h) and reduce the down force accordingly, what time the F1 car will post.

    I only know that if I had to choose between the two, I would take the Bugatti EVERY time.

    You can go 6 seconds faster to 400 than the Bugatti on a very reliable machine at a small fraction of the cost. Not sure about 400-0 but it should be pretty good as well. Also far more fuel efficient.

    The Tesla is great but only for 400m then it runs out of steam and the big power with gears wins.

    As much as I like the Chiron, it's film was hollywood. I mean what car did the camera crew use?

    The Agera was a more "real" film.

    Did a little checking on Wikipedea, that Agera is the RS version, not the S, there is one more model called the One:1: which has 1360 bhp, 200 bhp more than the RS. The Chiron is quoted at 1479 bhp but has to carry +/- 500kg extra curb weight.
