Koenigsegg Agera R - Click above for high-res image gallery

Koenigsegg certainly caught our attention when it unveiled the new Agera R at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month. With its Speed Racer paint scheme and 1,115 horsepower on tap, it darn well better have. But the exotic Swedish automaker has only now released the full specifications, and suffice it to say, they don't disappoint.

As we already knew, the Agera R packs a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces a prodigious 940 horsepower on standard 95-octane gasoline, but fill it with E85 bio-ethanol blend and you're looking at a whopping 1,115 hp. Driving the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, that's good enough for a 2.9-second sprint to 60 mph.

The engine is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg, however. The carbon-Kevlar body generates 300 kilos (660 pounds) of downforce at 250 km/h (155 mph), to which the turbine wheels contribute, wrapped in specially-made Michelin rubber. Koenigsegg says their latest supercar will also pull a neck-straining 1.6 g around the skid pad – enough to trounce just about anything else on the road. Follow the jump for the full specifications.

      Looks like something out of Tron.

      1.6 g's?! Holy !@#$
        • 3 Years Ago
        I wonder about this too. There's sustained lateral g-force, such as around a skidpad, and there's momentary lateral g-force, such as recorded by an accelerometer around a road course. The latter is always higher, since it is only a momentary spike, but it is seldom quoted in performance specs. Seeing as some of the best machinery currently in production maxes out at just over 1.0g (something like 1.1 or 1.2 at most), 1.6 seems especially high. It's as if, with current supercars hitting about 250mph top speed, the Koenigsegg were to post a 364 mph top end. It's just not fathomable, even with all those fantastic specs. like special tires that are 345mm wide in back, and vortex generating wheels. Maybe with super-sticky compound race slicks, or maybe this is only a momentary g-force reading.

        I was wondering about that. 1.6 just seemed absurdly high, didn't know about the different ways to measure it.
      • 3 Years Ago
      I call BS on the 1.6Gs, that's just too good for a street car. Even a full blown race car like a GT2 car can "only" pull 1.45Gs or so. Still a badass car though.

      If I sell a ball, can I put a down payment on this beauty?
      • 3 Years Ago
      Sigh.... Love.
      • 3 Years Ago
      and you get a 3 year warranty. now thats a good deal..i wish i could afford this
      • 3 Years Ago
      THIS IS ART. It is not only a Super car with the most evil performance money can buy. All the detail is absolute masterpiece. I totally love the car and want to drive one before I die.
      • 3 Years Ago
      By the gods I wish they bought Saab! I'd die a happy man to see one of these in the show room. Still surprised they are able to bump up the HP by that much with E-85.

      Go Scandinavia! Wooo!
