A Koenigsegg Agera R at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, front three-quarter view

No more having to work through brokers or call your people in Europe when you want to trade up to this year's Koenigsegg, now that the Swedish supercar syndicate has appointed New York's Manhattan Motorcars to be its first US dealer. Putting high priority on the company it keeps, this will put the Agera R in a Gotham classroom alongside pupils from Bugatti, Bentley, Lamborghini and Rolls-Royce. All the better for it to get called on when it raises its hand for potential buyers.

Those buyers will need to get it out of the city, though, if they really want to use it. The twin-turbocharged, 5.0-liter V8 behind the Agera's cockpit is good for 960 horsepower on regular gas, or 1,140 when primed with E85. And we don't expect that those one-piece carbon fiber wheels will enjoy Manhattan's mean streets, even with the swanky Öhlins Racing Triplex suspension.

This is your cue to head down for a test drive with your trade-in and a Vuitton bag filled with roughly $1.5 million. Or you can take your time and start with the press release on the appointment below.

I couldn't be happier with the choice of partner. Since 1995 Brian Miller and his group have created a dealership with almost iconic status in the middle of New York City. Their friendly, relaxed, knowledgeable and down to earth attitude fit very well with our brand values, so it's the perfect match.
