Now that we have seen the Koenigsegg Regera everything else by comparison looks kind of dull and boring. But for the poor souls who may not be able to buy that awesome hybrid hyper car, the Swedes have made the Koenigsegg Agera RS which is like a diet version of the Regera!
Koenigsegg Agera RS is not a hybrid. It is in fact a hotted up version of the Agera R, itself a car of seriously high temperatures. The RS is built to slot between the Agera R and the high-end One:1, utilizing some of the technologies of the megacar in a more affordable, easier to handle package.
One of the distinguishing features of the Koenigsegg Agera RS is a brand-new aero kit it is sporting with larger front splitter and rear wing than the previous models. The new aero design is so effective, it generates 450 kg at 250 km/h. In comparison, a Ferrari 488 GTB only manages 325 kg.
The downforce helps the RS become a faster car around corners, but it does no good for the car’s top speed, which is a shame because it certainly has the power to reach insanely high top speeds. Koenigsegg Agera RS features a 1,160 horsepower version of the firm’s trusty old 5.0-liter V8 engine which is E85 capable as well.
Production of Agera RS is limited to 25 units, with 10 already pre-sold. It is pretty good going, considering each one of these cars runs for nearly $2 million.
