The Swedish based supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg has recently announced that the updated Agera will be officially presented to the public on the 6th of March at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
According to the automaker, the updated Koenigsegg Agera will be wearing the 2013 model year in its name, which means that the supercar will go on sale sometimes this year. Koenigsegg says that the “new” Agera R is coming with the world’s first hollow, one piece, super light carbon fiber wheel, using a method developed by the company which is named the Aircore Technology. Besides this, the supercar is also coming with the world’s first production engines to use nano-surfaced cylinder sleeves, for reduced fuel consumption and friction.
The rev limited in the updated Agera has been raised to 7.500 rpm from 7.250 rpm, and its power went up from 940 HP to 960 HP, while in the “R” version this is now 1,140 HP from 1,115 HP on E85. The suspension has also been updated in co-operation with Swedish shock manufacturer Ohlins Racing, and this is now coming as standard on the Agera R. The Koenigsegg Electronic Stability, or simply KES, is now standard on all of the company’s models.
The new Koenigsegg Agera is available in both left or right-hand drive, and it’s coming with 120 liters of luggage space and detachable and stowable hardtop. The supercar can now accelerate up to 440 km/h or 273 MPH, and the 0 to 300 km/h acceleration is done in 14.53 seconds, while the 300 to 0 braking is over in 6.66 seconds. The 0 to 200 mph acceleration takes 17.68 seconds and the 200 to 0 deceleration takes 7.28 seconds. More details on the updated Swedish supercar at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
