Koenigsegg Agera RST Takes On A Tesla Plaid And Suzuki Hayabusa
Carwow recently released a new video featuring a drag race between a Koenigsegg Agera RST, Tesla Model S Plaid, and a supercharged Suzuki Hayabusa.
Mat had the privilege of driving the Koenigsegg Agera RST, a special edition car of which only 25 examples were ever produced. This particular model represents the highest-spec version, featuring diamond-encrusted paintwork as a luxurious finishing touch. Under the hood, the Agera RST is powered by a rear-mounted 5.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine, generating an impressive output of 1,341 horsepower (1,360 ps) and 1,158 lb-ft (1,570 Nm) of torque. With an estimated value of $4.5 million, it is also the most expensive car Mat has ever drag raced.
Next in line is the Tesla Model S Plaid, known for its remarkable electric performance. With three electric motors, the Model S Plaid can produce over 1,000 horsepower (1,020 ps) and 1,047 lb-ft (1,420 Nm) of torque. In terms of price, the Tesla comes at a more affordable cost, priced at £115,360.
Finally, we have the Suzuki Hayabusa, a supercharged beast with a price tag of $64,000. It is equipped with a 1.3-liter 4-cylinder engine and a supercharger, delivering an impressive power output of up to 375 horsepower (380 ps) and 206 lb-ft (280 Nm) of torque.
