Koenigsegg Agera R U.S. Debut

Koenigsegg Agera R

For those of you who have been living under a hypercar-news-blocking rock, Koenigsegg has a new car, the Agera R.  And, it’s awesome.  Completely makes you forget about most other hypercars (Koenigsegg CCBlank included).  The 2013 Koenigsegg Agera R has Aircore hollow carbon fiber wheels and a top speed of 273 miles per hour.  273 mph!!!  The Agera R also holds the records for fastest 0-300 km/h (14.53 sec), 300-0 km/h (6.66 sec), 0-200 mph (17.68 sec) and 200-0 mph (7.28 secc).  All that with 120 liters of luggage space and a stowable hardtop (Yep, the Agera R is a convertible).  So, it’s pretty much the king of the hill.  Not to mention the fact that the Agera R is painfully gorgeous.  

Good news everyone! The Koenigsegg Agera R made its U.S. debut today (or will in about an hour).  It is afterall the week of the Pebble Beach Concourse d’Elegance.  The Agera R is scheduled to be at the McCall Motorworks Revival today from 5 pm to 10 pm at the Monterey Jet Center and Friday at the Quail A Motorsports Gathering from 10 am to 4 pm at the Quail Lodge in Carmel, California.  Brand founder Christian von Koenigsegg will even be there.  Maybe one can get him to autograph their cylinder head.  And now, specs photos of the Koenigsegg Agera R.
