Due to this numbers, behind the wheels wrapped in Michelin high performance tyres, the Agera feature the latest in braking technology, incorporating an adjustable ABS system, 392x36 and 380x34 ventilated and drilled ceramic discs.
The new traction control is the fastest reacting in the industry, with auto adapt functionality for different road conditions and driving styles as well as several manual settings. Inside, the car features a new type of illumination, called the Ghost light.
