Video: Koenigsegg Agera R image

Thanks to Evo Magazine, today we have the first video showing the Koenigsegg Agera R, one of the most powerful street-legal car.

Boasting 1115bhp, thanks to a revised version of the Agera 5-litre V8 engine (capable of running on bio-fuel), the Agera R will be the most powerful Koenigsegg ever produced. That’s 205 more horses than the standard Agera!

The engine is able to run on both gasoline and E85 but with gasoline it only produces 940 hp. Torque also increases, to 885 lb-ft from 811.

Like the “regular” Agera, the R uses a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

Although the power figures are impressive enough, two figures that will likely grab the attention of most automotive enthusiasts in the days of the 1,200 horsepower Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, would be the Agera R’s scant weight of 2,932 lbs ( Veyron SS has 4,053 lbs ) and its lateral g-force capability of 1.6!

The price of the optional R-package is £ 132,000. This comes on top of the normal Agera which costs £ 875,000.
