These familiar words signify time for take-off and this Porsche hypercar is certainly about to take-off. The driver is chasing a 1140-horsepower Koenigsegg Agera R, to no avail I might add, and the videographer is strapped into the passenger seat giving us an incredible view.

The Porsche 918 Spyder utilizes a 4.6-liter internal combustion engine and a series of electric motors to generate 887-horsepower. It can rocket from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.2-seconds with an estimated top speed of 214 mph. As you can see, the car in the video is moving at 218 mph and seems to have more to give. Of course, this is a European market car.

The Koenigsegg Agera R is the most fantastic supercar of which you may have never heard. It is manufactured in Sweden and is often compared to Thor’s hammer. It utilizes a 5.0-liter twin-turbocharged engine and accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 2.8-seconds. It has a top speed of 273+ mph.
