Geneva 2011 – Koenigsegg Agera R – rpmGo.com

Koenigsegg Agera R

One year ago, the Swedish supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg revealed the pre-production version of the Agera which was powered by a V8 4.7-liter twin turbo engine. This week in Geneva, they’ve brought the production version of the model, along with the more powerful “R” version.

The production-ready model has a Koenigsegg-developed V8 5.0-liter, 32 valve, dry sump, aluminum/carbon fiber engine that cranks out 927 hp (940 PS / 691 kW) and 811 lb.-ft (1100 Nm) when using 95 octane petrol. The Agera will do 16 mpg (14.7 liters / 100 km) and have CO2 emissions of 310 g.

The Agera R has the same power plant as the standard version but the engineers tweaked the fuel system which can now accept E85 biofuel, allowing the V8 to output a whopping 1099 hp (1115 PS / 820 kW) and 885 lb.-ft (1200 Nm) of torque.

The model exhibited at Geneva is inspired by the legendary Speed Racer theme, as specified by the proud owner of the #83 production car. In addition, the model has a custom carbon fiber roof box that was developed in collaboration with Swedish roof rack manufacturer, Thule.

Koenigsegg teamed up with Cima to develop the car’s transmission, creating the world’s very first seven-speed dual clutch system for a single input shaft gearbox. Comparing it to a regular DCT system, this new gearbox is smaller, lighter and it has less moving parts while at the same time offering a more distinct shift feel.
