It's an end of an era as Koenigsegg says goodbye to the Agera line by rolling out the Final Edition cars —Thor and Vader — from their factory in Angelholm, Sweden. Named after the hammer-wielding Norse god of Thunder, Thor, and the iconic villain of Star Wars, Vader, the two Ageras will first be delivered to their owners in southern Germany and later will be showcased at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, England.
The two Final Edition cars sign off the three-car Agera Final series, which was first announced in March 2016. They have been named as ‘Final Edition’ cars by their owners with the consent of Koenigsegg Automotive. The Agera Final series is based on the Agera RS but with all options available to owners at no additional cost, including the development of bespoke aerodynamic solutions.
Both the Thor and the Vader are powered by the 1,341bhp 5.0-litre V8 engine ‘megawatt’ engine, which was first used in the One:1. The Agera marked Koenigsegg’s change from supercharging to turbocharging and this range inspired the development of Koenigsegg’s Triplex suspension system, numerous aerodynamic advances and the Aircore hollow-spoke carbon fibre wheel. Both the Final Edition cars incorporate custom-designed front winglets, enlarged front and rear spoilers.
Thor is finished in two-tone clear carbon with diamond-flake in select sections of the paintwork. The body features a large LeMans-style central fin for high-speed stability as well as Koenigsegg’s traditional active aerodynamic solutions.
Vader, on the other hand, is finished in traditional clear carbon with diamond flake and features two small rear winglets and highlights finished in white gold leaf. The enlarged rear spoiler is supported by strakes with bespoke cutouts that reveal the skeleton supporting the function of the active rear wing.
The Agera line has been Koenigsegg’s longest-lived model range, spanning from 2010 to 2018. A replacement for the Agera line is due for unveiling at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
