Koenigsegg’s latest special order Agera R has been officially released. It’s named the BLT and its tailor made for a client out in China. It passes no resmblence to the famous sandwich though, instead it features a unique blend of blue and grey carbon fibre. It features red highlights and a number of special options, specified by the customer.

According to the Koenigsegg press release, BLT has a different meaning in Chinese. The name was chosen as it represents the pinnacle of the Koenigsegg customization program and shows how truely bespoke a Koenigsegg can become. Both Koenigsegg and the customer are thrilled with the result.

Underneath the mechanicals are shared with the 2013 Koenigsegg Agera R. It features Koenigsegg’s in-house developed 5.0-litre twin-turbo-charged V8 engine which produces 960hp with 93 octane fuel and 1140hp with E85. For the 2013 model Koenigsegg made eight changes to ensure that the package remains an attractive proposition for hypercar buyers.

The 2013 Agera R features the world’s first hollow, one piece, super light carbon fiber wheel saving 20kgs of weight. The owner of the BLT chose not to add these wheels to their car. Fuel consumption is reduced through the use of nano-surfaced cylinder sleeves and a new ECU which also raises the rev limit to 7,500rpm. The 2013 Agera R benefits from a lighter exhaust, front winglets, unique Triplex suspension and an electronic stability program which become standard across the Agera range.
