    Koenigsegg Agera R packing up to 1,115 hp

    the Agera R's 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 makes a ridiculous 1,115 horsepower and 885 lb-ft of torque on E85. Fill the tank with 95-octane gasoline instead of the biofuel, and figure on "only" around 940 horses and 811 lb-ft. The V8's connected to a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The driver harnesses that power from a lavishly appointed cockpit that meets all the hypercar techno-fantasy criteria.

    The Agera R's body panels are draped over a carbon fiber monocoque whose rigidity is such that a roof is not required. Hence, it's a removable panel that can be stowed inside the car. The owner of the example being displayed in Geneva is a skier, so the car is outfitted with a custom carbon fiber roof box developed in conjunction with Thule. It's a single-piece system that replaces the Agera R's standard roof entirely; when you get to the mountain, you simply swap the ski-box roof for the standard roof (which is tucked away in the cargo compartment).

    Other highlights of the Koenigsegg Agera R include Vortex Generating Rim (VGR) wheels whose spokes act as turbine vanes that help maximize downforce. They're wrapped in Michelin rubber developed specifically for the Agera. Said tires are rated up to 260 mph, making them the highest-speed-rated tires in the world, according to Koenigsegg. As always, we'll have a full team in Geneva next week to bring you full details and a live look at the Agera R. In the meantime, check out the high-res image gallery below.

    I think it would be pretty cool to have an 1100 HP IKEA chair.

    Imagine riding that thing to local car meet.


    "DAMN DUDE WHAT IS THAT?"

    "IT'S AN 1100 HP IKEA LOUNGE CHAIR"

    new records from Agera R.

    0-300kmh: 14.53 seconds
    0-200mph: 17.68 seconds
    300-0kmh: 6.66 seconds
    200-0mph: 7.28 seconds
    0-300-0kmh: 21.19 seconds
    0-200-0mph: 24.96 seconds

    have no idea what these means? to compare, Veyron SS 0-200mph time is 22.2 seconds.

    Now if VW let Koenigsegg to use their highspeed track, Koenigsegg will be the fastest production car no doubt.

    0-200 in 17 seconds is freaking stupid fast. I want to know what it runs in the 1/4. Traps into the 150's I would guess?

    I know it's the easy way to make big power like that, but that motor does not match the car at all.

    Pricing anyone?
