The Koenigsegg Agera. A man’s lustful wet dream. It’s been around for a while with us, this mad Swede. Since 2010 in Angelholm, Christian Von Koenigsegg and his band of mad geniuses made the Agera and its various incarnations. We can only imagine a factory of hardly 100 skilled engineers at Angelholm having fun designing the Agera. The first Agera R, in 2011, set a new Guinness World Record by breaking the 300 kmph barrier in just 14.53 secs. So now you know about Koenigsegg, and how mental this really was. It was far ahead of the curve and had stolen every trophy from Bugatti’s drawers!
To end this hypercar’s reign, there will be one last edition, which will be called the Agera Final, and Koenigsegg will be manufacturing only 3 examples of this super-exclusive superhot automobile. And to nobody’s surprise, all 3 units were sold even before the model was announced in Geneva! The first of the Agera Final series is the Koenigsegg “One of 1”, which was designed for the Geneva Motor Show in particular.
When you pay insane amounts of money, your car has to be different, better and more customized than any other Koenigsegg Agera. And that’s exactly what Agera Final is! With the Agera R serving as a light platform, the Agera Final will have the performance bumped up to the level of the One:1, to be precise. According to Koenigsegg, “The customer wanted an Agera that would be as close to a One:1 as possible in performance terms, while retaining the roof window, stowable roof and full luggage space of the Agera R.” Externally, furthermore, there’s a custom-designed top-mounted rear wing with a second blade, and a roof-mounted air intake. At the back, there’s a custom Koenigsegg shield mesh, an adjustable venturi element and even a twin-exit titanium exhaust outlet, specially 3D-printed for the car.
The Agera Final features the company’s 1MW engine: the 5.0-litre, twin-turbo V8, which has been much appreciated in the One:1.
1MW stands for ‘one megawatt’, or the same otherworldly 1360 BHP of the Koenigsegg One:1. The engine also develops an insane 1371 Nm of torque, which allows the car to cover the 0-100 kmph sprint in under 2.9 seconds. Its kerb weight is 1380 kg, aided by the company’s ‘Aircore’ hollow carbon-fibre wheels, which tip the scales at under 7kg each despite their 19-inch (front) and 20-inch (rear) diameter. Other features from the standard Agera list will be added at the owners preference at no additional cost. Sounds like a good investment, eh?
All 3 Agera Final editions will leave the factory at Angelholm, Sweden towards the end of 2017. Yes, there will be a replacement and Koinigsegg has already started working on it. The Regera is the flagship and only other model in the Koinigsegg line-up until the new car arrives, from which we can expect more promised madness. Till then, with the Agera Final, lets enjoy the Agera for one last time. It will be written in the automobile history books as an absolute gem.
