Koenigsegg have one of the most sensational line-ups we’ve ever seen at the Geneva Motor Show 2015. The Koenigsegg Agera RS sits alongside its megacar brothers, the Koenigsegg One:1 and the Koenigsegg Regera! The Agera RS is the successor to the Agera R in that it offers more power and a new look; owners probably won’t consider the Agera R.
As you would expect, the Agera RS implements some of the new technology and features of the One:1. Not only this, Koenigsegg are billing this car as “the ultimate track tool”. It does of course comply with all of the latest safety standards so it is primarily intended for use on the public roads!
Koenigsegg Agera RS
For the RS, Koenigsegg add advanced lightweight sound insulation, a new track optimised front splitter, front winglets, side skirts, an advanced dynamic underbody flap system and a dynamically active rear spoiler to the Agera package. The Agera RS now produces 450 kg of downforce at 250 km/h. It also benefits from improved air outlets around the front wheels, more power and a raised rpm limit.
The Koenigsegg 5.0 litre V8 engine has been optimized for regular pump gas and now puts out an incredible 1,160 bhp on regular petrol. The Agera RS hasn’t entirely ditched the E85 flex fuel capability though. Certain markets will be able to choose this option for even higher power outputs.
The Koenigsegg Agera RS is lighter too, even with all the extra standard equipment. It tips the scales at just 1295 kg with a curb weight of 1395 kg. It retains the Agera’s 7-speed paddle-shift with auto shift mode Koenigsegg Electronic differential.
Customers will be able to choose a Koenigsegg active and self-levelling chassis package as wells as a 3G connected Pre-Active chassis setup, alternative aero package, active sound cancellation and much more.
The Koenigsegg Agera RS will be handcrafted with just 25 examples planned. Koenigsegg have already revealed 10 pre-orders prior to the show. Expect this number to increase as the Geneva Motor Show 2015 continues!
