Koenigsegg Agera R Geneva 2012
The new for 2012 Koenigsegg Agera R has arrived on the floor at Geneva 2012 and it looks stunning.
We have a big soft spot for the wondrous creations of Christian von Koenigsegg, and the latest versions of the Agera and Agera R bring even more to the party than before.
We had the chance to get up close with the Koenigsegg Agera at Goodwood this summer (well, Claire did – thanks, Tom) and were enormously impressed at the levels of craftsmanship and quality a minnow of a car maker like Koenigsegg manages to achieve.
So when the new Koenigsegg Agera R was rolled on to the floor at Geneva today we were up for a good look. And its’ every bit as impressive as the Agera we saw in the summer.
The improvements to the 2012 Agera include stuff like hollow carbon fibre wheels, nano-surfaced cylinder sleeves, a new ECU with a raised rev limit meaning more power than before – up to 1140hp on the Agera R – and improved suspension.
But above all else the Agera R looks stunning.
