PostHeaderIcon Take A Look At Koenigsegg Like You’ve Never Seen It Before

Koenigseggs are some of the most beautiful cars on the planet, so imagine the possibilities if the Swedish automaker partners with Swedish camera maker Hasselblad for a stunning photo shoot. Well, don’t imagine it because it actually happened. Koenigsegg and Hasselblad went on locations in and around Ängelholm in the province of Skane in Sweden to partake in a photo shoot for the ages with a pair of Koenigsegg Ageras serving as the proverbial models.

The shooting took place as recently as May and June 2017, a time that Ming Thein, Hasselblad’s chief of strategy, described as ideal since the weather was more balanced and the natural distribution of light in the environment was more appropriate to the kind of stylized treatment the camera maker was going for. The results, as you might expect, are downright spectacular, a testament to the status of Hasselblad as one of the best in its fields. The production behind it certainly felt that way too, as Hasselblad pulled out all the stops to make sure the photo sessions were worth all the trouble, including using three drones from drone company DJI, one of which is considered the largest photographic drone available on the market today. Put all these pieces together and you have a photo shoot of a lifetime, as you can see from the incredible shots that we’re taken.

PostHeaderIcon Koenigsegg Agera RS1

As the car world goes absolutely bananas over the release of the quarter-mile killing insane-o-mobile known as the Demon at the 2017 New York International Auto Show, Koenigsegg is providing anyone with muscle car overload with a little respite. Say hello to the Agera RS1, a speedy Swedish meatball that’s far more car than the domestic straight-line one-trick pony from Dodge.

Koenigsegg first launched production of the Agera in 2011, and updated it by adding upgrades and special iterations every few years. The most notable of these is the venerable One:1, which was released at the Geneva Motor Show in 2014 with an incredible one-to-one power-to-weight ratio, producing one horsepower for every kg of curb weight.

The Agera RS could be considered a follow up to the One:1, using a lot of the same equipment but with a slightly less bonkers power-to-weight ratio. That said, it’s still very fast, offering an impressive 0.83 horsepower per kg.

Regardless, the Agera RS is an absolute performance powerhouse, framed as “the ultimate track tool” for buyers. This RS1 model is the first example off the production line, bearing a bespoke exterior and interior worthy of such a machine.

Only 25 Agera RS models will be built, all of which were spoken for as of January of last year. Read on for more info on what makes this thing so damn beastly.

PostHeaderIcon Koenigsegg Agera RS ‘Gryphon'

Koenigsegg had a real winner on its hands when it introduced the 2010 Agera. So much so, that a number of other models like the Agera R, Agera S, and Agera X all came to be within just a few years. Then, in 2015, we were introduced to the Agera RS, a car that is billed as the “ultimate track tool” and slots above the Agera R, but below the One:1. Through a means of improved aerodynamics and weight reduction, the RS truly became a powerful track demon. Only 25 RS examples were built, all of which sold out quickly, with the first 10 being spoken for before the car even went into production. Now, two years later, Koenigsegg is coming back to the Geneva Motor Show with a new version of the RS, but this isn’t exactly a version you want to take on the track, even if it’s more than capable. Fitted with the optional 1MW engine, and doused with healthy doses of gold flake, this baby is the definition of special editions.

But, it’s not all about the gold flake and horsepower when it comes to the Agera RS Gryphon. This thing is prepped to be fully compliant with U.S. road regulations, which means you can drive this 1,360-horsepower beast from coast to coast if you really want to. There are plenty of cabin comforts and driving aids, and the roof can even be stored under the front hood. It’s a beautiful and well-appointed special edition, so let’s dive on in and take a closer look at it, and what makes it so special.

Updated 03/27/2016: We added a series of new images for the new Agera RS ‘Gryphon’. Check the “Pictures” tab to check them all.

PostHeaderIcon Koenigsegg Agera XS

The Koenigsegg Agera was launched in 2010 as the company’s second nameplate after the CC, which spawned the CCR, CCX, and other limited-edition models. Built until 2013 in just seven units, the Agera received several updates. The Swedish brand launched the Agera R in 2011, the Agera S in 2012, and the One:1 “Megacar” in 2014. The latter is the most powerful Koenigsegg built to date and it also delivers the greatest power-to-weight ratio. However, the Agera saga continued into 2015 with the RS, built in 25 units, and in 2016 with the Agera Final. Although the Final was the last Agera-based supercar, Koenigsegg unveiled a new bespoke supercar at the Monterey Car Week.

Dubbed Agera XS, it’s a one-off vehicle with custom features inside and out, as well as the first Agera created specifically for a U.S. customer. Just like the RS it is based on, the XS is an evolution of the One:1 and incorporates much of the technology developed for the “Megacar.”

“It is a true pleasure for us to present the Agera XS at this year’s Monterey Car Week, especially as this is the first Agera RS that will be fully homologated for use on American roads. Our re-entry into the U.S. market is a watershed moment for our company and the Agera XS is the perfect car to emphasize this occasion,” said Koenigsegg boss Christian von Koenigsegg.

Keep reading to find out more about it and stay tuned for updates.

Updated 08/18/2016: Our guy Jonathan Lopez is present at the 2016 Monterey Car Week and he took a series of shots for the new Koenigsegg Agera XS. Check them out in the picture gallery.

Koenigsegg Agera One of 1-0

As previously announced, Koenigsegg brought to this year’s Geneva Motor Show the production version of the Regera hyper car and a “final” version of the Agera. Celebrating the success of the Agera series and the end of production, the one-off Koenigsegg Agera One of 1 comes with a number of exclusive features.

The bespoke hyper car is powered by an upgraded 1MW engine and weighs just 1,380 kg with all fluids and fuel on board which means it is up there with the One:1 model in terms of performance. Among the distinguishing features of Koenigsegg Agera One of 1 there is the front air vents and a top-mounted air intake, and bespoke new double-blade rear wing, air intake, front splitter, side skirts, venturi and triple-front winglets.

Koenigsegg Agera One of 1 also features custom designed Koenigsegg shield mesh at rear, custom badging, 3D Printed twin-exit titanium exhaust outlet with imprinted “One of 1” name, custom designed paint finish with partial clear carbon, and polished interior switchgear. This car also introduces the Ager Final limited edition program which includes the following upgrades:

  • The 1MW engine upgrade, which allows customers to feel the full power of the Koenigsegg twin-turbo V8 under foot, with 1,360hp and 1,371Nm of torque available for the ultimate in performance.
  • Koenigsegg’s unique Aircore™ hollow carbon fibre wheels, which weigh less than 7kgs each and save over 20kg in unsprung mass compared with Koenigsegg’s lightweight, regular wheels.
  • A clear carbon finish, or partial clear carbon, which shows the beautiful weave of the Agera’s carbon fibre body panels, is also available at no extra cost.

PostHeaderIcon In-car Footage of Koenigsegg Agera R Speeding Down the Autobahn

One of the best things about visiting Germany, or maybe even living there, is the Autobahn, the national highway with certain stretches of roadway with no regulated speed limit. That’s quite the thing to experience. But, imagine hitting that long stretch of unregulated roadway in a vehicle like the Koenigsegg Agera R.

Well, since chances are you’ll never get that chance, someone was nice enough to take an onboard video while riding in an Agera R that appears to hit more than 220 mph. We never really get a shot of the speedo, so we can’t say for sure, but those other cars certainly appear to be sitting still as the Agera rockets past them. And, is it just me, or does that Agera sound like it is about two seconds away from breaking the sound barrier?

Anyway, it is a short video, but well worth your time to watch. I actually watched it twice. I recommend you use headphones, or watch it in a place where you can really crank up the volume – you most certainly want to hear the therapeutic noise produced by that 5.0-liter, 1,140-horsepower engine. By the way, this is probably one of those videos you’ll want to bookmark for later. Once we get our hands on all the new virtual reality headsets that are about to debut, this video might prove to be one hell of a VR experience.


PostHeaderIcon Koenigsegg at Geneva 2016: Production Regera, Final Agera

Koenigsegg at Geneva 2016

Koenigsegg’s booth at this year’s Geneva Motor Show is a must-visit on account of what they are bringing along. There are three attractions, including a brand-new Agera RS build, the Regera in production trim, and the world premiere of the final Koenigsegg Agera model range.

So although one beloved Koenigsegg is going out of production, a new and more awesome model is replacing it. The Swedish firm has not revealed any details about the final series Agera, but rest assured, the hyper car will be going out with a bang. In fact, they will be showing a new Agera RS build which, again, we know nothing about yet, but should be quite exciting.

The best part of Koenigsegg’s Geneva show, however, will be the debut of the new Regera hybrid hyper car in full production trim. It will be interesting to see how the car has changed since we last saw it as a concept. The car maker says the production Regera has undergone 3,000 changes compared to the concept, so it could be a totally different car now.

PostHeaderIcon Koenigsegg Agera RS Is Officially Sold Out

10 months after making its debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the Koenigsegg Agera RS has officially sold out, making it the fastest selling model in the company’s history. Yep, all 25 units of the Agera RS are already spoken for with deposits being made on all 25 cars.

Koenigsegg founder Christian von Koenigsegg made the announcement, commenting on the “instant classic” status of the Agera RS, and referring to the megacar as a “pinnacle project that has been wholly embraced by our customers and friends.” It’s hard not to argue with von Koenigsegg’s assessment here. The Agera RS, after all, is considered as the evolution of two previous Koenigsegg models – the Agera R and Agera S – and also includes applications that the company learned from developing the Koenigsegg One:1.

So in a lot of ways, the Agera RS is the product of years worth of experience building supercars, drawn up and developed by adhering to the principles that paved to way for its predecessors. No wonder all 25 units sold out as fast as they did.

On the technical side, the Agera RS is as fast and as powerful as any supercar in existence today. On top of all the technological wizardry and all its state-of-the-art features, the Agera RS is powered by a 5.0-liter, twin-turbo V-8 engine that can produce a conservative 1,160 horsepower on 95 octane fuel. That number is conservative because, according to Koenigsegg, the car can reach higher power levels when it’s running on E85 flex fuel.

PostHeaderIcon One-Off Koenigsegg Agera N Spotted for Sale

Koenigsegg Agera N-0

Due to their nature as bespoke, built-to-order hyper cars, every single Koenigsegg that leaves the factory is a one-off. So the word is used in rather a large sense. This Koenigsegg Agera N, however, does deserve to be called a one-off. It gets, after all, its own unique designation.

The ’N’ in Koenigsegg Agera N does not stand for anything significant as far as we are aware, though one could say it stands for ‘New’ because of the deep modifications applied to the car. This unique machine started life as a normal 2011 Agera belonging to a British businessman. When he sold it in 2014, though, the new owner had Koenigsegg modify the car and fit it with new features. That’s when it became the Agera N.

Among the main highlights of Koenigsegg Agera N there are a set of exquisite carbon fiber wheels, new side mirrors, and smoked lights, all of which borrowed from the One:1 model. The N is powered by a 1,140 horsepower version of Koenigsegg’s V8 powertrain, but it’s fitted with an inconel exhaust system complete with N logos on the mufflers. Despite the changes, the Agera N will always remain a British-spec model as it’s a right-hand-drive car.

This car is up for grabs at London-based super car dealer SuperVettura with 5,500 miles on the clock for a nice £1,200,000.

PostHeaderIcon Drunk Man Crashes Koenigsegg Agera R; Likely Breaks Record for Costliest DUI Crash

A 26-year-old man in China crashed a Koenigsegg Agera R in what local Chinese media is reporting as a drunk-driving episode. The crash happened just after midnight on Sunday, November 29, 2015 in the Yubei District of Chongqing.

According to the People’s Daily Online, the driver was in an inebriated state when he lost control of the hypercar, sending the $4.1 million machine straight into a metal railing where it crashed head-on, destroying a big chunk of the front end of the car. CCTV footage near the site of the crash also showed the Agera R violently spinning after the initial impact, ripping open the rear clamshell in the process before sliding backwards into the center of the road in a heap.

Fortunately, the driver came out of the crash in good shape, but was reportedly held by Chinese police after the crash. There’s no word yet on whether the driver will face criminal charges, or whether he owned the Agera R he crashed in the first place. Separate reports have indicated that the actual owner of the Agera R is quite the exotic car connoisseur, having amassed a collection that also includes all three hybrid hypercars: the Porsche 918 Spyder, Ferrari LaFerrari, and McLaren P1.

In another lucky break, the damage sustained by the Agera R doesn’t appear to be a death knell for the car. It can still be repaired, although the cost for doing so will likely make it one of the most expensive repairs for any one car in history. After all, only six Agera Rs exist in the world and if repairs are to be made on this one, the entire car is likely going to have to shipped all the way back to Koenigsegg’s headquarters in Sweden.

There are times when something so extraordinary happens that all we can do is sit back, take a deep breath, and shake our heads. This is one of those times.

PostHeaderIcon Koenigsegg Agera R For Sale on eBay

A day in the office typically involves spending a few minutes browsing through some auto classifieds. You never know when you might strike gold on a good deal, right? Well, a recent sweep of eBay ended with me staring at a Koenigsegg Agera R that has a “Buy It Now” price of $1.65 million.

The seller is British Motor Exotics, a US-based dealer that has a handful of used exotics at its disposal. I browsed through the dealer’s listings and it revealed a handful of Bentleys and Lamborghinis that are all for sale at pretty attractive prices. There’s even a $384,888 black SLR McLaren with only 6,682 miles on it and a $2.1 million, one-off Bugatti Veyron “Transformers Edition”. As appealing as these cars were, the Agera R was the one that really caught my attention because of its rarity and more importantly, its mileage. This bad boy only has 601 miles on its tires, which is roughly the equivalent of it being brand new.

To be clear, I have no intention of making a bid for it, let alone buy it outright. $1.65 million doesn’t grow on trees, and last I checked, the palm trees outside my house had no surprises waiting for me. So, I’m not going to be the proud owner of a Koenigsegg Agera R anytime soon. Tough luck, I know. But, just because I can’t buy it, that doesn’t mean I can’t point someone who might be interested in the right direction.

So here it is. Like i said, this particular Agera R is being sold for $1.65 million. It’s worth noting that the car has been listed once before at a price of $1.7 million. But that listing ended on November 9, 2015 with no takers. British Motor Exotics brought the car back up in a new listing, slashing $500,000 off of the initial asking price. The new listing will be up online for the next four days as British Motor Exotics continues to find a buyer for this incredibly rare Agera R. Rest assured, I’m going to keep tabs on it to see if someone would be willing to fork over that kind of money to own one of the fastest and most powerful cars in the world.

Koenigsegg Agera RS-Alain-0

For as far back as we can remember, Alain Class Motors in the United Arab Emirates has been the single most high-end super car dealership in the Middle East, possibly the world. And now they show us why once again by showing off their Koenigsegg Agera RS.

Boasting a two-tone white and carbon paint work, this limited edition hyper car of just 25 units is the next best thing after the extremely rare Agera One:1. Koenigsegg Agera RS weighs in at just 1395 kg and yet packs an astonishing 1,160 horsepower and 1,280 Nm of torque. The power is delivered to the rear wheels through a seven-speed paddle shift transmission and Koniegsseg’s own electronic differential. It relies on very complicated electronics, suspension system design, and active aerodynamic to remain drivable and fairly practical – at least for a weapons-grade hyper car.

You will find the full technical specs of the Koenigsegg Agera RS after the pictures:

RSR-Spa-0

Even though a year and a bit has passed since the trio of the new hybrid hypercars took the world by storm, it is still kind of a big deal to see all three of these bad boys in one place, especially if that place is a race track like Spa-Francorchamps. But it’s better than that, since the LaFerrari, P1, and 918 are joined here by a huge number of other sports and super cars including a magnificent Koenigsegg Agera R.

The event that brought these cars, plus many more amazing models, together was hosted by RSR Spa, a company that specializes in high-end track days, exotic car rentals, and driving tours. The gallery below highlights the best of their August track day which was particularly heavy on the Porsche side with a couple of 918 Spyders, a few GT3 RS models and Cayman GT4.

Last Koenigsegg Agera R-0

A luxury car dealership in Germany is offering the last ever Koenigsegg Agera R produced for sale. The Swedish hyper car has a sticker price of 1,980,000 EUR, but if you have good negotiation skills you can probably knock as much as five grand off. Now that would be a sweet deal!

Nah, we’re just kidding, this car is seriously overpriced. Two million Euros can buy you all sorts of hyper cars. You have to be a huge fan of the Koenigsegg Agera R to choose this bad boy over all the other options. This version is of course rather special owing to the fact that it is the last ever Agera R boasting “improved power and drivability,” according to the dealer.

The 1,201 horsepower super machine features Koenigseggs own brake and ABS system, ESP and TC system, Koenigsegg Aircore Carbon wheels and the latest iteration of the Koenigsegg/Sima gearbox with improved shift time and comfort. All that means is, the latest R is a tad less intimidating than the early versions. It is still pretty vicious though, as any 1,200 hp rear-wheel-drive car would be.

Koenigsegg Agera R can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in something like 2.8 seconds and reach a top speed of well over 400 km/h. On the surface though, it looks like an ideal cruiser as it comes with a detachable hardtop, navigation, MP3 audio system, bluetooth, and a lovely leather-wrapped interior.

Koenigsegg Agera R-ADV1-0

Swiss tuner Luxury Custom, as you may know, is the proud owner of a candy red Koenigsegg Agera R which they bring out occasionally to show off with. Recently they decided to give the hyper car its first-ever mod in form of a new set of wheels.

This, then, is the world’s first Koenigsegg Agera R with aftermarket wheels. There is of course only a handful of wheel makers capable, and confident, enough to tailor a set of custom wheels for a car like the Agera. ADV1 Wheels is one of them, and they’ve come up with this setup you see here.

LC’s Koenigsegg Agera R gets a custom setup with 19×9.5 inch wheels at the front and 20×13 inch on the rear. The wheel design is ADV5.2 MV1 CS with center lock feature, finished in brushed aluminum.

Of course, with a 1,000+ horsepower car like the Koenigsegg Agera R there is always some concern regarding the effect the new wheels might have on the car’s performance. After all, the standard wheels and tires were chosen after countless rigorous tests and changing them kind of messes up all the math done by the engineers. Still, when you see the name ADV1 on the wheels you can be sure they’ve done it right.

PostHeaderIcon Lewis Hamilton Races Gumball 3000 In Koenigsegg Agera S: Video

The Gumball 3000 entry list usually consists of wealthy exotic car owners with more money than driving skill, but there are always a few exceptions to the rule. One is our very own Christian Moe, who participated in this year’s Gumball, and to our knowledge, is not a billionaire. Another is two-time and current defending Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton, who joined the 2015 Gumball to drive a Koenigsegg Agera S in the final stage.

Friend and software mogul David Heinemeier Hansson invited Hamilton to join him from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. The route took the rally through Death Valley, where temperatures hit over 105 degrees, which isn’t so bad when you’re behind the wheel of a Swedish hypercar with a twin-turbo 5.0-liter V-8 producing 1,030 horsepower and 812 pound-feet of torque. It also doesn’t hurt knowing you have an ice-cold adult beverage waiting for you at the finish line in Vegas.

PostHeaderIcon LaFerrari Drag Races Koenigsegg Agera: Video

Today’s hypercars are so stinking fast, that most racetracks are nowhere near big enough to let them truly stretch their legs. Forget public roads. Consider the 217 mph, 950 horsepower Ferrari LaFerrari and 270 mph (theoretically), 960 horsepower Koenigsegg Agera — cars with enough power and speed to accidentally tip the planet’s rotational axis. This new level of performance has given rise to Vmax events, at which owners can fire their cars down a two-mile stretch of runway to see just how fast they actually are.

We’re really beginning to think our pal Shmee150 has some sort of self-replicating superpower, because the guy seems to be everywhere at once, including the Hypermax II event at the Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground near Birmingham, England, where he witnessed this epic LaFerrari, Agera drag race. The K-egg has some trouble getting power down at the start, but begins to catch the red car, once aerodynamics become a factor. Place your bets, and watch to see which car is quickest.

PostHeaderIcon Here's The Most Expensive Car Key Ever: Video

What would you buy if you had $250,000 to blow on whatever you want? A house and a loaded German sedan? Or maybe skip on the house and place an order for the new McLaren 570S? Granted, there’s a lot of stuff you can buy with that amount, but you probably won’t spend it on a car key fob made of platinum, onyx, and a whole lot of diamonds. Unless it has a Koenigsegg emblem and comes with the Agera R, that is. And $250K doesn’t sound that expensive when it grants access to a $2.8-million supercar, right?

So what’s the deal with this key fob, which is probably the most expensive ever made? For starters, it’s circled with 40 carats of sparkly diamonds, and the rest of the fob is made of platinum and black onyx, both very expensive materials. Made by Optimal Innovative Solutions, the same company that makes diamond hood ornaments for Rolls-Royce, it’s actually just a custom, one-off piece and not a production item. It’s not yet available as on option with the Agera, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see it on the customizing list of other Koenigsegg supercars if there’s enough demand. For now, it’s just as impressive as the Agera R price-wise.

Not that I will be able to afford a Koenigsegg anytime soon, but I’d rather have mine with a carbon-fiber key fob. How about you?
