Swedish hyper car maker, Koenigsegg has come up with an awesome new model for 2010 Geneva Motor Show called the Agera, which means ageless in Greek. Although they say it’s a new model, it seems to be more of an evolution for the current CCX. Both cars are very similar inside and out, only the Agera has more of everything. More aggressive design, more futuristic interior, and of course more power.
This carbon fiber hyper car is still powered by that magnificent 4.7 liter twin turbo V8, which in this delivers 910hp and no less than 1100 nm peak torque. With this model, Koenigsegg is getting really close to the Bugratti Veyron territory, which is remarkable considering that the Swedish firm is much much smaller and nowhere near as powerful as the maker of the Veyron, VW.
Just like the exterior, the interior of the Agera remains loyal to the original Koenigsegg, but everything in it has been replaced by a fancy digital equivalent! Just look at that instrument panel in the pictures below, it’s fabulous! a bit confusing, but very fun. And that traditional circular control panel, which is now joined by a big LCD screen.
Apart from the engine and the looks, the company has also tweaked the cars chassis and suspension and also the braking system to cope with the added power. It now uses 92×36 and 380×34 ventilated and drilled ceramic discs which are equipped with an adjustable ABS system as well (It is now more civilized than ever!). They have also worked with Michelin to develop special sticky tires for this car.
