Geneva: 2013 Koeniggsegg Agera R produces a mind boggling 1140bhp

| March 8, 2012 | 3 Comments

For the Uninitiated, Koeniggsegg Agera R is one of the rare few cars in the world which could challenge the Bugatti Veyron in terms of both speed and power. The small (ahem!) Swedish carmaker holds its own in the world of automobiles for the extreme machines it creates. For Geneva, Koenigsegg have presented the 2013 version of their most extreme Agera R with more power.

For its newest 2013 model year variant, the Agera R produces an absolutely ludicrous 1,140 bhp of peak power while running on E85 ethanol fuel. Yes, this baby is a flexi-fuel car. If you think that is amazing, have a look at what this exotic baby rides on – two pairs of all carbon fiber, hollow wheels. Be it the world’s first nano-surfaced low friction cylinder sleeves or Triplex suspension, the Agera R is full of wonders. We have listed below some of them, followed by an image gallery of this mad supercar.

Exciting features for the 2013 Agera range.

2. The rev limiter has been raised from 7250rpm to 7500rpm, raising power from 1115 to 1140hp for the Agera R on E85.

3. KES (Koenigsegg Electronic Stability) is now standard on all Koenigsegg models.

4. A new, lighter rear exhaust section has been developed for the Agera R, which also improves the performance of the rear diffuser.

5. New front/side winglets for the Agera R provide 20kg more downforce at 250km/h, as well as reduced drag.

6. Agera R does  0-300 km/h in 14.53 sec,  0-200 mph in 17.68 sec and has a top speed of approximately 440 km/h

7. Available in left or right hand drive

We’re as amazed as you are. Drool over the images of this sexy car.
