An Agera R has been put up for sale, providing a rare opportunity for car aficionados and collectors to acquire one of Koenigsegg’s most prominent automobiles. The car, labeled as Unit #105, is the last Agera R model ever produced. This means that the car is a recent specimen, and employs the latest technologies Koenigsegg has come up with for its hypercars.
These include the signature brake and ABS system, in addition to the ESP and TC systems found inside the car. Other revolutionary features are the Koenigsegg Aircore Carbon wheels and the new Koenigsegg/Sima gearbox.
The gearbox is noted for its excellent shifting and comfort in using. The paint in this particular specimen by the Agera R by Koenigsegg has openly been inspired by the Speed Racer theme.
It features a predominantly white finish, combined with a tailor-made Thule Roof Box as well as specially made Michelin tires for its wheels.
It also features a Black Bronze finish together with the white. Sitting out in the sun, Car #105 shimmers distinctively thanks to the Bronze Metal Flakes design integrated into the paint job.
Finally, the upholstery inside Car#105 is made out of natural Swedish leather. The seller is asking £1,225,000 ($1,894,000) + VAT, but the car can be sold NET of taxes of export.
The Koenigsegg Agera line first surfaced in 2010, when the company debuted an early prototype of what would become a Hypercar of the Year awardee by Top Gear, and would later on receive mostly positive and exceptional reviews from various members of the media who specialize in reviewing cars and other vehicles.
Thanks to its groundbreaking technology, the Agera R is one of those models that have succeeded in giving Koenigsegg’s customers a new experience every time they drive the units that belong to that line.
The Agera R excelled, and continues to excel, in both ordinary roads and in performance-demanding race tracks. Space management is also one aspect that the Koenigsegg hypercar’s design does so well in.
The space in its luggage trumps any other car’s luggage space. It also features a custom-made Koenigsegg door system, and a hardtop that one can simply detach and stow away when not needed. While the pre-production unit of the Agera impressed reviewers, the actual production versions did even better.
For instance, the final versions of the Agera had engine and gearbox configurations that differ significantly from the prototype that was reviewed by motoring journalists. Even the interiors of the final units included features that are different from the ones that were installed in the pre-production model.
The production versions also featured improved aerodynamics and chassis parts compared to the pre-manufacturing model. Minimalism is a main feature of the Koenigsegg Agera, which means that it is designed with a focus on functionality instead of aesthetics.
The car’s profile, for instance, is designed with an eye for ergonomics, dynamics and safety. People who are fond of flashy exteriors will be disappointed with the standard features of the Agera R – any extra features are designed mostly to comply with changes in local regulations and standards particularly in driver safety.
In other words, if Koenigsegg introduces new features in succeeding models, it is only to make sure that the new model keeps up with new regulations and standards. Because of that, you’ll find that the external profile of the Koenigsegg CC remains as a major design inspiration for the Agera 15 years after the CC came out.
The concept has proven itself to still be relevant up until today – the Agera’s body continues to remain as a good example in proportions, in compactness and in muscularity. However, despite unchanging exteriors, the Agera’s performance continues to evolve with every model released.
