Geneva Show 2011 Highlights: 2012 Koenigsegg Agera R


Supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg has featured its new Agera R at the Geneva motor show.

The Agera R features a 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine producing an impressive 1100bhp and 885lb ft of torque when fuelled on E85 biofuel – this drops to 972bhp and 811lb ft of torque using regular petrol.

Mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, the R should hit 60mph in around three seconds and on to a top speed of 250mph.

Features of the Agera R – Agera meaning ‘to act’ – include a carbon fibre monocoque and removable roof panel, which can be stowed inside the car. Pictured in the gallery, is a custom carbon fibre roof box to house skis, as specified by its owner.

Other highlights include Vortex Generating Rim (VGR) wheels, which maximise the Agera’s downforce thanks to its turbine inspired spokes, and tyres rated to 260mph - the highest-speed-rated tyres in the world, according to Koenigsegg.
