2012 Koenigsegg Agera R Review

March 1st, 2011 by By auto # Koenigsegg

The Koenigsegg Agera R again will debut at the Geneva Motor Show this year, which previously Koenigsegg had been in Geneva Motor Show. The Koenigsegg Agera R is also making its global debut, wearing in a Speed Racer-inspired paint scheme (per the owner’s request) and packing so much power that you’d think an R2 unit would be a better co-pilot than, say, Chim-Chim.

Now, about that power – 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 Koenigsegg points out that the Agera R rides on Vortex Generating Rim (VGR) wheels that are wrapped in Michelin tires developed specifically for the car. The tires are apparently good for 260 mph, which makes them the highest speed rated tired in the world.
