A video of Koenigsegg’s crash testing with the Koenigsegg Agera recently surfaced on YouTube. The footage comes from National Geographic’s Megafactories series. Crash testing is an unfortunate part of any cars development process, Koenigsegg is no different. The crash tested the CC8S when it was originally released, and now that the Agera has hit the market, it has gone through the same process.
The video is small and only lasts for 37 seconds but you can clearly see the process of the testing. Because the value of the Koenigsegg Agera is so high, they were forced to us only one vehicle. To put that into perspective, NCAP would usually use around 26 cars.
The Koenigsegg Agera was hit at 80km/h at the rear, 54km/h at the side and a head on collision as part of the testing. The video doesn’t mention a crash test rating, merely that the car survived every test. The Agera’s resistance to damage looks pretty impressive in the video though!
We’ve included a copy of the Koenigsegg CC8S’s crash testing so that you can compare the two. Enjoy!
