The Koenigsegg Agera R was one of the stars of the Geneva show grabbing many headlines with its unusual high-speed roof-box that was proposed as an accessory. However, there was plenty of information missing about this Swedish hypercar. Up until now, that is, as the exotic carmaker came out with all the juicy details.
Starting with the performance numbers, the Agera R lives up to the company's reputation. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h [62mph] comes after just 2.9 seconds, while 0 to 200 km/h [124mph] takes only 7.5 seconds. Even more impressively, the 0-200-0 km/h [0-124mph-0] is covered in a mere 12.7 seconds, partially thanks to its ventilated carbon ceramic brakes.
As we previously reported, the 5.0-liter V8 engine develops 1,115 horsepower at 6,900 rpm when running on E85 ethanol. However, in markets where this fuel isn't available, the Agera R can run on 95 octane petrol (940HP), or 98 octane (1,050HP). Top speed is rated at over 420 km/h (261 mph).
Koenigsegg also revealed the equipment features for the Agera R that include among others an adaptive rear wing, hydraulic lifting system, satellite navigation system, G sensor (the car can make its passengers feel up to 1.6G of lateral g-force), leather carpets and a silver key.
Koenigsegg charges extra for options such as visible carbon body, front winglets, rear view camera, heated seats, ski box roof, skis, Inconel exhaust system and winter wheel package. The pricing has not yet been announced, but the Agera R is expected to cost well beyond €1,000,000 ($1,410,000). Scroll down for the full specs.
