All in all the production version of the Koenigsegg Agera is 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.
several differences between the pre-production car previously shown and the
production versions. For example, the engine and gearbox configurations are
different and some revolutionary interior, chassis and aerodynamic features
adorn the production version of the Agera that has never been shown before.
Although sharing the same values and philosophies as previous Koenigsegg
models, the Agera takes the Koenigsegg experience to a completely new level.
Similar to all previous Koenigsegg hypercars, the 2012 Agera is the
brainchild of Christian von Koenigsegg. The Agera has come to life in order to
set new benchmarks for Hypercars when it comes to control, handling, speed,
comfort, practicality and sheer driving enjoyment, while combining these
features with clean, efficient and beautiful design.
The name Agera set
the tone for the new project. Agera means "to take action" in Swedish. It is
also short for the ancient Greek word Ageratos which means "ageless". These two
are very suitable meanings, for the car building the future of Koenigsegg.
Design: Less is More
The 2012 Koenigsegg Agera is designed with the
minimalistic "less is more" philosophy in mind. This philosophy means that the
shape of the car has to be purely functional with no added features except those
purely needed to meet regulation, added safety, ergonomics, practicality and
aerodynamics. Koenigsegg believes that if this philosophy is followed, the car
will also be beautiful as it is purely purposeful.
The 2012 Agera
is proportionate, compact and muscular. Its timeless, efficient and distinctive
shape is truly a testament to time. The original shape and concept of the
Koenigsegg CC, created 15 years ago, is still valid, fresh and highly
competitive today. The Agera manage to stay true to the original philosophy,
shape and size of the original CC. At the same time, it looks, feels and
performs like something belonging to the future.
