The 15th of December 2017 Car of the Day goes to 2015 Koenigsegg Agera RS. It was released at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show as the last and fastest Agera (not including the One:1) and integrates technology from the Agera R, Agera S and the One:1.
Featuring a mid-engined, rear wheel drive layout, with said engine being a 1,341 bhp Twin-Turbo V8 (with the Megawatt package), a 7-Speed Dual-Clutch Automatic Transmission and a power to weight ratio of 1 horsepower per 1.03kg. This combo bestows the car with a 0-100km/h in just 2.6 seconds, the highest road-legal production car top speed of 447.19km/h, a world record previously held by the Bugatti Veyron, and the world record for 0-400-0km/h, taken from the Bugatti Chiron, which it completes in just 33.29 seconds!
With such crazy performance figures, it's hazard to see how this Agera can't get someone's car of the day, well except for Bugatti's!
When I was a wee lad in my gleefully troubled youth, I was quite fascinated with light, how to capture it, catalog it and ultimately generate it so if need be, images could be altered to display objects in better 'light', more so when in motion...after researching the history of cameras, I ran across a book on Eadweard Muybridge and his genius late 1800's work on animal locomotion that employed multiple cameras to capture #motion in #StopMotion#photographs that along with his zoopraxiscope invention, projected motion pictures long before celluloid film of the later movie industry...i however was more fascinated by the light needed to both capture the horse in mid gallup as well as the light for the device to project the captured images...
My very first camera, the famed #Kodak#Instamatic 110, came from Mum when I was still but 9yrs old, for when we would go to the museums, I would gravitate to the #photography section and ask a thousand questions about time of day, the sun's inclination, and its association with color, or tones of grey if the photograph was in black and white...my very first roll of film captured a day's worth of sunlight casting shadow across a grouping of my cacti...I then took the prints, put them into a stack and fluttered them in unison producing a stop motion mini film...instead of being enamored by the motion, I used the method to determine the best shot with best light and shadow - a process I somewhat do today shooting tens of images that I can compare and contrast to find the right one with THE right light!
