"Agera, the the Swedish word "to act" has been chosen as the name for Koenigsegg's latest creation, as it symbolizes the Koenigsegg philosophy well. Our aim is always to strive forward, to seek challenges beyond limitations. Our new supercar the Koenigsegg Agera is an outcome of that creative process and its functions respond very well to the given name.

When we believe in something, we do it. We act, the car has to act, when commanded to unleash its performance, forcefully and flawlessly. The development of the Agera has been evolutionary, following the Koenigsegg tradition of continuous improvements, by honing and perfecting the end result, all based on previous experience and innovative mindsets. The focus when developing the Koenigsegg Agera was to maximize the driving experience, cornering speed, braking and adaptability.

It features the latest in braking technology, incorporating an adjustable ABS system, 392x36 and 380x34 ventilated and drilled ceramic discs, for unparalleled braking performance and zero fading regardless of track or road use. Thanks to optimizing breathing and twin turbo, power is now 910hp running on regular petrol. Torque is maximum 1100nm and is reached at 5100rpm. There is over 1000nm torque available from 2680 to 6100rpm.

It also features a new traction control system, the fastest in the industry, with auto adapt functionality for different road conditions, driving styles as well as several manual settings.

Koenigsegg has also developed a new type of interior illumination, which is a worlds first in the car industry - Ghost light. The illumination shines through the billet aluminium buttons and surfaces by way of invisible nano tubes, creating excellent visibility of the symbols, as well as a very clean and stylish appearance, framed by an all new carbon fiber center console and tunnel assembly.

The driver can easily select the information he/ she wants displayed in front of him/ her, on the all new multi-info cluster combined with the upgraded infotainment display, ranging from basic functionality, to G force meter, Sat-nav, music, lap-timer or compasses - to best suit the current driving conditions. Further more the interior features the new Koenigsegg Agera stitching and seams, wich gives an beautiful interior.

The Koenigsegg Agera was created to maintain Koenigsegg's position as one of the most engaging top performance supercars existing today on the planet and the the near future. Still maintaining the largest luggage space in the industry and the novel Koenigsegg doors and detachable/ stow able hardtop, that really makes all Koenigsegg supercars stand out.

The Koenigsegg Agera will be produced in parallel to the Award winning CCX and CCXR models. This gives Koenigsegg the ability to live up to our customers varying, wishes and demands. The Agera pre-production Geneva show car will be put through extensive testing for the coming six months prior to the production car launch of the Agera."
