The latest Koenigsegg Agera RS has just been spied in the midst of testing by Westbroek Carspotting. This particular example could be the third customer car and follows on from the bright red example snapped in final testing late last month.
Unlike that car and the original carbon fibre clad example from the Geneva Motor Show, this Agera RS has been painted in a simple shade of white. While the colour is far from extraordinary, the simple finish does turn your attention to the bold aerodynamic elements which distinguish the Agera RS from lesser Agera models as well as the extremely limited One:1.
While complete carbon fibre wheels are available for the Koenigsegg Agera RS, this particular example features a set of more simple silver wheels. There is a good chance however,that these wheels are simply being used for testing purposes and will be replaced when the Swedish hypercar is delivered.
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.
