It’s not every day that Koenigsegg reveals a new super car, but the Koenigsegg Agera R is more than a welcome sight. This Swedish stunner will be one of the fastest debuts at the Geneva Motor Show this week, with more muscle than a freight train under the hood. The Agera R is powered by a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with an astounding 1,115 horsepower. For the record, that’s 100 more horsepower than Koenigsegg’s last supercar, the Trevita. That power will push the Agera R well into the 200 mph range in a matter of seconds. Aside from the muscle, the Koenigsegg Agera R is a machine of rare beauty. This version, one of likely just a few to be produced, features a Speed Racer colorway with an emphasis on pure white with black and red accents.
The interior feels like the cockpit of a fighter jet, but not without the comfort and luxury of a million-plus sports car. In total, the design screams “performance” at a volume that is sure to shatter ear drums, but you won’t need to hear the power from this engine, you will feel it. The Koenigsegg Agera R will be shown in the flesh at the Geneva Motor Show this week. From there, only a handful will be lucky enough to own one, as these rare birds are reserved only to those with “filthy rich” as their job title. Sadly, ours still only reads “publisher”.
