Lewis Hamilton In Koenigsegg Agera HH Blasting Through Desert At 140 MPH


Formula 1 points leader and arguably the best driver in the world at the moment Lewis Hamilton is currently in the deserts of California properly whipping it in his Koenigsegg Agera HH. According to Gumball Team Anime, they’ve been taking some turns on California highways at more than 140 MPH. Check out the GIF below!

It’s Day 6 of the 2015 Gumball 3000 Rally and although it’s a proper seven-day event, there’s really only six days of driving. For the last day of hoonage, Mr. Lewis Hamilton decided to join the merry band of Gumballers as they blasted through the deserts of California en route to their final desition, the glittering lights of Las Vegas (cue Viva Las Vegas.)

It should be noted that the owner of the Koenigsegg Agera HH isn’t Lewis Hamilton’s but is on exclusive loan thanks to David Heinemeyer a.k.a. the creator of Ruby On Rails. Not only is Mr. Heinemeyer a certified genius, but is actually an accomplished race car driver himself winning his class at the 24 Hours of LeMans after five years of contesting the monumental race.

Thanks to some Instagrammers along the Gumball route, we’ve caught glimpses of Hamilton blasting along.

The Koenigsegg Agera HH is a serious machine. Consider that it has a top speed of 272 MPH and can crest 60 MPH from a standstill in less than three seconds!

Then again, it’s Lewis Hamilton at the wheel. 140 MPH is pretty pedestrian for the current F1 Champ.

Here’s the Agera HH in all it’s glory earlier today thanks to another Gumballer and all around good guy Tim Shmee of Shmee150 on Youtube.
