Speed Racer Inspired Koenigsegg Agera R



The Swedish supercar maker Koenigsegg will be bringing their latest car, the Agera R, to the Geneva Motor Show.  This particular Agera R’s paint scheme is inspired by Speed Racer per the owner’s request and comes with a carbon fiber ski box that can be mounted on the roof and can be used safely at speeds of up to 186 mph (300 km/h).

The technology present in the Koenigsegg Agera R is impressive; the car’s monocoque chassis weight only 154 pounds (70 kg) and the entire car weighs in at 2,932 pounds (1,330 kg).  According to Koenigsegg, the Agera R is the lightest production supercar in the world.  Not only is the Agera R very light, it also packs a massive punch.  Powered by a 5.0 liter bi-turbo V8 engine that produces 1,150 horsepower and 885 pound-feet (1,200 Nm) of torque using E85 ethanol fuel or 940 HP and 811 pound-feet (1,100 Nm) of torque when running on gasoline (95 Octane).


The Agera R’s top speed is limited to 233 mph (375 km/h) but theoretically it can achieve a top speed of 273 mph (440 km/h).  Koenigsegg can unlock the top speed for the owner, for a short time, when all necessary conditions are met.  Not sure what these conditions are and if any formal paper work is involved.

The Koenigsegg Agera R’s interior is very simple with a busy gauge cluster.  It boasts aluminum and carbon fiber trim and comes with leather and alcantara upholstery.
