The Koenigsegg Agera XS is here and it's very orange

It seems fitting that a car named XS and designed specifically for the US would be shown first at Monterey Car Week, the most excessive display of vehicular over-the-top-itude there is. Koenigsegg showed the Agera XS last night at McCall's Motorworks Revival at the Monterey Jet Center. The very orange car will also appear at The Quail on Friday.

A brief refresher on the XS: It's an Americanized version of the Agera RS, built for the first US Agera customer. The XS uses the same powertrain as the RS, a 1,160-horsepower, 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 backed by a seven-speed paddle-shift transmission. There's a huge wing on the back – the hugest Koenigsegg has ever put on a car, because that's what the owner wanted. (XS, get it now?) And it's really orange.

This marks the Swedish super-hyper-megacar manufacturer's re-entry into the US market. It also helps usher in 2016 Monterey Car Week, and we'll have more for you from the Monterey peninsula over the coming days.
