One of the first production-spec Koenigsegg Agera RS models has been snapped while testing near the company’s headquarters in Angelholm, Sweden.
Seeing as all examples of the Koenigsegg One:1 have been sold and produced, the Agera RS is now acting as the firm’s range-topping model. The first example was delivered back in June and the latest example pictured is certainly bold.
While the first delivered featured a carbon fibre finish, this one is painted in a bright shade of red and includes black accents on the front bumper and bonnet as well as the splitter and side skirts. It also features a set of silver wheels but it remains to be seen if they’re being used simply for testing purposes or if they’re the finished product. Complete carbon fibre wheels are of course available for the Agera RS.
Generally speaking, the Agera RS bridges the gap between the One:1 and the Agera R. 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 1160 hp 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.
Just 25 units of the car will be produced.
