Koenigsegg Agera R

At the 2011 Geneva Motor Show Koenigsegg is presenting the brand new Koenigsegg Agera R - Quicker than lightning! The Agera R on the Koenigsegg show stand - production car # 83 - is inspired by the legendary Speed Racer theme, as specified by the owner of the car. Speed Racers main colour is white - so is snow. Equipped with special Michelin tires and a custom made Thule Roof Box - Speed Racer is ready to attack the ski resorts.
In 2010 Koenigsegg presented a pre-production version of the 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". Please see attached quotes from these test-drives.

 Just how fast is this exotic two-door hyper-machine? Well, suffice it to say that the Agera R is hot on the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport’s tail clocking in at a blisteringly fast 0-168 mph in just 14.53 seconds. Although not yet completely verified, this performance proves that it won’t be long before Koenigsegg overtakes Bugatti and claim for itself the title of being the world’s fastest supercar.

The Agera R may be the epitome of performance, but style and luxury are not lost either. Standard equipment includes a detachable and storable hardtop roof, power windows, satnav system, MP3/USB compatibility, climate control, tire pressure monitoring system, and even a complete car cover. One of the coolest tech pieces about the new Agera is that you have to access a special “Top Speed” mode in the infotainment system to unlock its true potential. I still think the separate top speed key in the Bugatti is cooler, but this is a close second. If the owner so chooses, a set of fitted luggage, special leather interior options, and a myriad of exterior colors are available. The Geneva car was fitted with a distinctive and distracting Ski box on the roof. It’s sort of an oxymoron to take your Agera R to the ski resort, but the car is even available with winter tires.
