Good news! You don’t have to be a member of Oman royal family to get the new Koenigsegg Agera R as they’ve announced the official debut of the car at the Geneva Motor Show.
So you can buy this hyper car too, well if you have £ 875,000 to pay for an Agera and then an additional £ 132,000 for the R treatment. It is well worth it though, because that money buys you no less than 1,115 hp. That comes from a turbocharged V8 that’s been powering Koenigsegg cars for years.
They have not yet announced how fast this car is, but it is certainly very very fast! It only weighs 1,330 kg so its power to weight ratio is better than Bugatti Veyron SuperSport even. But it’s not likely to be faster than the Bugga because it is just not as technologically advanced. It is more of a fancy hypercar than a full-blooded supercar.
Koenigsseg kindly throws in their own branded skis with this car but then asks £ 17,593 to provide you with a roof box to carry them! 17 grand for a bloody box dammit! This particular Agera R that will be showed at Geneva also gets a set of £ 7,322 winter tires since it’s commissioned by a Norwegian customer.
The Agera R is an amazing car. But come to think of it, you pay in excess of a million Pound for a garage decor! You can’t use it very often and when you get to drive it you can’t go fast enough to enjoy it! You can’t enjoy on the track either because you have to be fully concentrated all of the time just to keep it in check!
