The Swedish based supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg has recently presented its latest creation, the updated Agera R, at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
According to the automaker, the Koenigsegg Agera is wearing the 2013 model year in its name which means that the supercar will go on sale later this year. The updated 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. The model is also coming with the world’s first production engines to use nano-surfaced cylinder sleeves for reduced friction and fuel consumption.
Koenigsegg says that the Agera R is available in both right and left-hand drive, coming with 120 liters of luggage space and detachable and stowable hardtop. The “new” Koenigsegg Agera R can accelerate up to 440 km/h (273 mph) and the 0 to 300 km/h acceleration is done in just 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 mph deceleration takes 7.28 seconds.
The rev limiter in the updated Agera has been raised from 7.250 to 7.500 and its power went up by 20 horsepower, from 940 HP to 960 HP, while in the Agera R the total output is now 1,140 from 1,115 on E85. The suspension has also been updated and the supercar is fitted with the KES (Koenigsegg Stability Control) on all models. More details on the Koenigsegg Agera R will be announced close to its launch.
