Geneva 2011: Koenigsegg Agera R video

Koenigsegg unveils its all-new 1115bhp, Bugatti Veyron challenging Agera R supercar at Geneva 2011. Pictures and video here

The new Koenigsegg Agera R is one of the main stars of the 2011 Geneva motor show, with 1115bhp on tap thanks to a revised version of the Agera 5-litre V8 engine. The Agera R is the most powerful Koenigsegg ever produced. 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 carbonfibre ski-box containing two pairs of Koenigsegg skis. This £17,593 roof-box can be easily swapped for a conventional roof section when not required and has a top speed rating of 186mph. Winter wheels and tyres are another £7322 option… The price of the optional ‘R’ package, on top of a normal £875,000 Agera, is £132,000 at current exchange rates but that looks like something of a bargain compared to the £168,000 Koenigsegg charges for creating a bare carbon car. evo visited the Koenigsegg factory a few weeks ago and there will be a special feature on the Agera R, together with an interview with Christian Koenigsegg, in Issue 155, on sale Wednesday March 2.
