The Swedish car manufacturer Koenigsegg will exhibit the new Agera R at Geneva 2011 (between three and 13 March next): some official pictures and some details are already popular, a few hours ago. The performance and even sportier version of Koenigsegg Agera, identified by the addition letter “R “, appears to have been first requested by a wealthy Arab buyer (according to some indications, would be the Omani family that has commissioned the particular configuration) and that only Following the Northern European company has decided to give birth to the declination Agera R to a wider group of customers (do not know the volume of circulation, but the price is: € 1,180,000).

The difference from Koenigsegg Agera? The new Koenigsegg Agera R is the same engine equipped with 5.0-liter supercharged V8 twice, but in this case, produces 1,115 horsepower and more than 1,200 Newton meters of torque (unless, however, uses a blend of gasoline and E85, or alternatively, if you choose to use only gasoline, the new R Agera would have 940 hp and 1,100 Newton meters of torque). The vehicle’s total weight is equal to 1,310 kilograms: we do not know what are the benefits of the new Koenigsegg Agera R (surely the maximum speed will be greater than 400 kilometers per hour) to be notified when the official presentation.

The power of the new R Agera is handled by a robotic double-clutch transmission with seven speeds and is transferred to ground through the rear axle: Agera R is equipped with Michelin tires designed specifically for durability up to 416 kilometers per hour and alloy wheels Vortex Generating Rim defined, engineered and designed to increase the grip of the new supercar Koenigsegg Agera R.

A curiosity: if you asked you what that trunk is applied over the roof of the new Koenigsegg Agera R, know that this is a special extra luggage space, designed by Thule and commissioned by the Swedish car maker, built in carbon fiber and proposed to € 18,600. The only drawback: the maximum speed limit of 297 kilometers per hour.
