    In a way i would be quite bumed myself if my chance to ride an Agera R would come up during winter time, on winter tires, in ┼re, Sweden.. Dont care what Koenigsegg says, the Agera R is not suited for that kind of driving..

    It would be fun though!!

    Taking into account the circumstances and his bias, I'd say that was actually a fairly positive review.
    This^
    The review of the car itself was a positive one, Mr. Harris is just a pawn in the show, his actually opinions are useless, he will say whatever the producers tell him to say. He is paid to drive the cars, while some of the information may represent his true feelings for a car, most of it doesn't. Much like top gear misrepresenting cars, it is however the producers want the cars to be portrayed that will better help ratings and views.
