Koenigsegg Agera R: Quicker than Lightning

(continued from above)

This year at the Geneva Motor Show, Koenigsegg is presenting the brand new Agera R. The Agera R on the Koenigsegg show stand is inspired by the legendary Speed Racer theme. Speed Racers main color is white and so is the car. Equipped with special Michelin tires and a custom made Thule Roof Box, the Speed Racer is ready to attack the ski resorts.

Last year, Koenigsegg presented a pre-production version of the upcoming Koenigsegg Agera. Since then the pre-production car and several test mules have continued the Agera development program. The Agera pre-production car has been driven by several influential motoring journals, resulting in raving reviews and awards, such as for example becoming the "Top Gear Hypercar of the Year".

All in all the production versions of the Agera are created to take the Koenigsegg experience to the next level both on the road and the track, still maintaining the largest luggage space in the industry in combination with the unique Koenigsegg door system and detachable/stow-able hardtop.

The Agera R displayed at Geneva is a very special customer car, set to be delivered to its new Norwegian owner straight after the show closes. It comes equipped with a special roof section featuring an integrated Thule carbon-fiber ski-box containing two pairs of Koenigsegg skis. This $28,000 roof-box can be easily swapped for a conventional roof section when not required and has a top speed rating of 186 mph. Winter wheels and tires are another $11,700 option.

The price of the optional 'R' package, on top of a normal $1,400,000 Agera, is $211,000 at current exchange rates, but that looks like something of a bargain compared to the $270,000 Koenigsegg charges for creating a bare carbon car.

The Interior

The interior of the Agera R is like no other car. No other materials than those deemed worthy by Koenigsegg are allowed. This means that what you get to touch and see inside the Agera R is only aluminum, carbon fiber, precious metals, alcantara and aniline leather.

All switch gear is highly bespoke and features wonderfully unique solutions, as for example the Koenigsegg Ghost light, that make solid aluminum buttons gleam with LED powered symbols appearing out of nowhere. The illumination shines through the billet aluminum buttons and surfaces by way of almost invisible micro holes, creating excellent visibility of the symbols as well as a very clean and stylish appearance, framed by an all-new carbon fiber center console and tunnel assembly.
