A few prominent quotes from the report include:
Most state’s minimum level of car insurance coverage is between $10,000 to 25,000 dollars. That doesn’t cover much on a 2.5 million dollar car.
Modern engineering offers spectacular starts, life-saving stops and the aerodynamics to keep the car on the ground even as when it reaches gravity-defying speeds
Breathing down the neck of Bugatti and Hennessey, the Agera R is aiming for the top spot. The Agera R reached 260 mph on the Autobahn in Germany. The horsepower is lower than the Bugatti, but the top theoretical speeds are a close match.
The Aero speeds from zero to sixty in an amazing 2.7 seconds. For a few years, this all-American beauty claimed the top spot as fastest car in the world.
