Innovative racing car technology meets safety-first car about town.
What defines the perfect sports car? Is it a detachable hardtop? Advanced, lightweight sound installation? Side skirts? A front splitter and front winglets? Or a dynamically active rear spoiler? That all sounds pretty great, doesn’t it?
But when you add to the mix increased power and a raised RPM limit, as well as a dynamic underbelly flap system and side air outlets behind the front wheels, you have the Koenigsegg Agera RS – an exclusive, extraordinary addition to the Koenigsegg range of sports cars.
With one eye on racing glory and the other firmly on the road, this car includes features that you didn’t even know you needed. Advanced composites and layup techniques mean the company has been able to lower the kerb weight of the car even further than in previous models, for a drive that feels as though you are floating on air. The engine has been optimised to be just as effi cient when running on regular petrol, with an output of 1160 bhp, making this just as much fun to drive around town as it is on the racetrack.
This extremely versatile car complies with all the necessary safety regulations needed to drive on the road, yet it provides the extreme driving conditions required to please professional racing drivers. Unlike previous models, it even has a usable luggage compartment. The desirability of this two-door, two-seater car is increased even further when you discover that only 25 will be made; 10 of which will be pre-sold before they are seen. The twin turbo, 5L V8 cars, each of which are handcrafted, have three traction settings, dual airbags, leather carpets and roof storage bags, as well as adjustable steering, power windows, integrated satellite navigation and climate control. The removable hardtop stores neatly inside the car, to make for an easy transition to convertible driving. It has always been the dream of Christian von Koenigsegg to create the ultimate sports car, and with each new model he gets slightly closer to perfection. He created his first car, the Koenigsegg CC, at just 22 years of age, fuelled by an obsession that began when he was only five years old. The car was completely original, and created on limited resources. And now, 18 years later, it still drives as good as new, and is a force to be reckoned with in the world of the supercar. Now, experts in the car industry, Koenigsegg continues to push the boundaries of technology to create superb cars that are always innovative and unique.
