Koenigsegg Agera R – The Need for Speed, Style, and Comfort!
In 1994, Christian von Koenigsegg captivated the automotive world when he penned the original Koenigsegg Competition Coupe (CC). Four car generations later, the Agera was born. As we all saw in the Need for Speed movie, the newest hottest car from Koenigsegg is their Agera R. The R edition features even more toys and upgrades for the driver to experience. According to the press release “The name Agera means “to take action” in Swedish and is short for the ancient Greek word ageratos (ageless).” Koenigsegg doesn’t use the term “Supercar” to describe what they produce they call their cars “Hypercars.”
Starting of course with the engine, which gives off 1140hp from a bi-turbo powered 5.0L V8. Gets you going from 0-60 in under 3 seconds and tops out at 273 mph. The car comes with Dihedral Synchrohelix doors (Lamborghini style) and is a two-seater, so you won’t be taking it on family vacations any time soon. Unless you are just taking a drive, then it’s the perfect vehicle. Another first is its Dynamic Rear Wing System. Unlike heavy pre-programmed hydraulic systems, the lightweight Dynamic Rear Wing adjusts its angle of attack with actual wind pressure to always maintain the perfect balance and control at any speed.
The interior cockpit features Koenigsegg’s iconic “circle of buttons”, also having innovative technology such as the multifunctional infotainment system and configurable instruments to provide unsurpassed functionality. The instrument cluster features digital gauges to give the feeling of being strapped in to a fighter jet. This car might be just as fast as one at takeoff. When you are in the mood for some fresh air, you can take the carbon fiber removable roof off and store it inside the hood. Because the engine is in the trunk as is with most high end supercars.
Driving this car would not only be a dream joyride but also a remarkable privilege and a dream worth having.
