Promises to be faster than the Agera RS, the fastest production car in the world
Koenigsegg is at it again. Late last year, the company claimed the title of making the fastest production car in the world when the Agera RS clocked an average speed of 444.6km/h on a closed public highway between Las Vegas and Pahrump. Even after this phenomenal feat, the Swedish supercar maker has not rested on its laurels. At the inauguration of their new sales and service outlet in Australia, the company revealed the sketch of the car that is set to replace the Agera RS. And as you’d expect, it will be faster than its predecessor.
The sketch shows off the rear of the car, and it looks typically Koenigsegg. The low and wide stance of is complimented by a large wing that it will come fitted with. This new model too will get the company’s signature Targa style roof. A large diffuser below the rear bumper and lot of cuts and creases all around to improve the aerodynamic efficiency of the car are some other details we could decipher.
While full details of the car aren’t out yet, founder Christian Von Koenigsegg said that it will be equipped with the reworked version of the Agera RS’ 5-litre bi-turbo V8 motor. Expect it to put about 20 – 30 horses more than the outgoing model. The supercar is also expected to be loaded with unique new technologies that will help the car go faster without compromising stability and safety.
With the kind of power that this car will make, it is natural to expect it to better the record the Agera RS set and even breach the 300 miles per hour barrier. The Agera RS currently holds the record of 284.55 m/h (457.49km/h).
