Koenigsegg Agera – Click above for high-res image gallery

As if we didn't have enough to look forward to at next week's Geneva Motor Show, the exotic-obsessive folks over at GTSpirit have secured the first images of Koenigsegg's latest masterpiece ahead of its debut, and the Agera looks every bit as potent as its predecessors.

It's obvious that Koenigsegg didn't want to mess with a winning formula, so the Agera is more of an evolution of the CCXs that came before it, with a similar greenhouse and the same dimensions (169-inches long, 78.6-inches wide and 44.1-inches tall) as the outgoing supercar. The new front and rear fascias ditch some of the aging angularity of the previous iterations, and the new LED headlamps and hood are decidedly more racy.

Nestled within the carbon fiber and aluminum honeycomb chassis lies the same 4.7-liter V8 as the CCX, but output has increased to 910 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque, allowing the 2,832-pound Agera to hit 62 mph in 3.1 seconds and top out at over 242 mph.

And as Koenigsegg has learned over the last 10 years, it's all about the little things. In addition to the bespoke sequential gearbox and carbon ceramic brakes, the exhaust is made entirely of Inconel, the fuel tanks are mounted on either side to optimize weight and balance, and the carbon fiber and kevlar body work, combined with the flat underbody tray, allow the Agera to produce 661 pounds of downforce at 155 mph. Oh, and there's custom luggage too.

According to GTSpirit, Koenigsegg only plans to produce 16-20 Ageras each year and orders will begin next week with deliveries starting later in 2010. We'll have more from the show floor in a few days, but in the meantime, check out the images below and hit up GTSpirit for more details.

      looks fantastic, kinda slow for the numbers but who cares, I'm sure it'll sound insane... the split fuel tank though... meh.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I wouldnt say slow ...

        :P

        Id say the numbers are pretty bang on... Im guessing its 0-60 isnt as good as some cars because it doesnt have AWD. Maybe the top speed is incorrectly quoted (or just isnt tested).

        Anyone else think it'd be fun driving this thing into a full service gas station right between two pumps? What other car lets you do that? a cool million well spent I'd say.

      I don't like that the windshield wiper is resting in the middle of the windshield and blocking the field of view.

      DROOOOOOL
        • 4 Years Ago
        Viiv?
        • 4 Years Ago
        Oh yeah and good work on the downforce, we don't want any Stigs dying on us.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Beautiful car, can't wait to see it perform
      • 4 Years Ago
      If it ain't broken, don't fix it. The new design look beautiful, a great progression of the CCX.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Fresh arent you confused... CCX used Fords 4.6 block not Adiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

      Looks great, especially the front. Nice work Koenigsegg!

      Am I the only who would rather see cars become more efficient and do more with less? I'm not saying become a bunch of prius driving wieners. Finding ways to lower internal friction of most moving parts, lower drag with 0 lift aerodynamics, lowering the weight of most moving parts are some examples of what I'm talking about. Call me crazy

        @Carlos
        No, I like that as well.

        But there is a special place in my heart for a 910 bhp supercharged, light-weight monster of a supercar, one that is just pure insanity. We need these cars to make up for the Priuses of the world.

        @ Fara,

        What he said.
        • 4 Years Ago
        @Carlos
        What makes you think that engineers cant do that while adding power?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Supercharged or turbocharged?

      Either way, that is a sweet car. Looks nice too.
        • 4 Years Ago
        In the past it has been twin rotrex supercharged.

        With a power upgrade, though... who knows (outside the company) until the information is published...

      It's so funny that this thing and the Pagani Zonda, two glorified kit cars, get so much love on this site by the same people who bash the LFA and the Veyron.

      Hilarious how ignorant people are.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I have to say that I came, I saw and I came again... THIS SWEDE IS GORGEOUS!
      • 4 Years Ago
      I'm they got rid of those taillights.
