Koenigsegg Automotive AB is proud to reveal the "Agera Final," a bespoke limited edition. As the name implies, it will be the last version of the Agera model line and only three units will be made. All three have been sold even before it was announced at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
The Agera RS has been a major contributor of the company’s success and was first unveiled during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The 25 units, which were set for production, were sold within 10 months. This made the Agera RS the fastest selling model in the company’s history.
"Agera Final" celebrates this success and is a fitting end to the Agera model line. Under the Agera Final program, owners will be given the opportunity to provide input to the design and even the specifications of the customized parts.
For the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the company will present the "One of 1," the first of the final series. The "One of 1" is a unique vehicle that will not be duplicated. There are a number of features that have been custom designed like the One of 1 front splitter, triple winglets on front bumper, and the roof-mounted air intake.
The top-mounted rear wing with second blade, venturi at rear with adjustable winglets, and the Koenigsegg shield mesh at rear have been custom designed as well. There is also a custom badging on the side, wing, and interior of this limited edition unit. The twin-exit titanium exhaust outlet is 3D printed and imprinted with the "One of 1" name.
It also has a custom-designed paint finish with partial clear carbon and aluminum interior switchgear that has been custom polished. The main objective of the Agera Final program is to optimize the vehicle based on the preferences of the customers.
For the "One of 1," customers wanted to have an Agera that was similar to the One:1 when it came to performance but will have the full luggage space, stowable roof, and roof window. It has an upgraded 1MW engine and even will all the fuel and fluids, has a weight that amounts to 1,380 kilograms.
Dry weight has been measured at 1,285 kilograms. While the One:1 had the top-mounted air intake and front air vents to help increase the downforce and with it the performance, it meant removing its ability to store the removable roof in front of the car. Designers at Koenigsegg therefore worked with the "One of 1" owner in order to solve this particular issue.
They sought to continue to have the luggage storage system and unique roof while still improving the aerodynamic qualities and performance. With the help of computational fluid dynamics, optimizing downforce was possible while retaining the fully functional luggage area with the solution being to have an air intake, side skirts, front splitter, venturi and triple-front winglets, and double-blade rear wing, specifically for the "One of 1."
This meant that the design had to be customized in addition to the tooling and manufacturing of the one-off parts for the "One of 1." The result is a bespoke version that is truly unique. Since the Agera Final marks the end of the Agera range and is the last to have the Agera badge, the limited edition is indeed important. It comes as no surprise to learn that the Agera Final models have full access to the company’s equipment list with all of the options being made available as standard but at no additional cost.
This is in addition to the bespoke aerodynamic treatments. Some of the options include the 1MW engine upgrade. This enables the driver to experience the full power of the twin-turbo V8 engine that can deliver 1,360 hp and 1,371 Nm of torque.
There is also the choice to have a partial clear carbon or a clear carbon finish with can display the amazing weave of the carbon fiber body panels. Another option is Koenigsegg's Aircore hollow carbon fibre wheels. Since each of them weighs no more than 7 kilograms, customers can save more than 20 kilograms in unsprung mass unlike that of the brand’s lightweight, regular wheels.
The Agera product line has long been associated with the company’s reputation for manufacturing the greatest performance vehicles since it was first launched in 2010. It was also during that year that Agera was awarded Top Gear 'Hypercar of the Year.' By 2011, the Agera R exhibited amazing performance by going from 0 to 300 km/h and back to 0 in merely 21.19 seconds.
It was with the Agera S that the company first showed that industry its Aircore carbon fibre wheels. It continues to be the sole OEM-manufactured carbon fiber wheel in the auto industry. It was the Agera line that served as the inspiration of the One:1.
The One:1 did not only set records at tracks but was also the first production car to have a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio. The One:1 beat the Agera R by more than 3 seconds in going 0-300-0 km/h in 17.95 seconds. The Agera RS meanwhile became the fastest selling car by January 2016 with all 25 units sold in just 10 months. Delivery of the Agera Final is expected at the end of 2017.
