2013 Geneva Motor Show: Koenigsegg Hundra based on Agera S

Article by Christian A., on March 5, 2013

At the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, Koenigsegg brought the Hundra, a unique one-off Agera S built for an excited car collector. Based on the right-hand drive Agera S, the Koenigsegg Hundra whose a clearcarbon finish, 24 carat gold leaf inlays, creating an intriguing mix of traditional and hi-tech craftsmanship.

Under the impressive design, we find the standard 5.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine, developed in-house by Koenigsegg and capable to deliver 1030 hp and 1100 Nm of torque. With a total weight of 1400 kg, the Hundra is not as fast as the Agera R, but still the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is made in 2.8 seconds while the 0-186 mph (300 km/h) -0 is made in an impressive 22.5 seconds.

The Koenigsegg Hundra has a price tag of $1.6 million plus local taxes and it is likely to see it in Hon Kong as the lucky guy who bought it is currently living there.

Understated and subdued would be the right words to describe the Agera. The minimalist approach in the car’s design meant more care and focus were given to ensure the functionality of the Agera. Standard features on ergonomics, safety, practicality, and aerodynamics were given their proper place in the design and the manufacture of the car. Therein lies the beauty of the Agera. The simplicity and back to basics approach makes the prevailing theme of the car revolve more on its purpose than on its aesthetics.

The Agera has always had a shape that is known and distinct. The car is balanced, compact, and muscular. This traces its roots to its first concept and design conjured a decade and a half ago by Koenigsegg CC. 15 years later, the Agera remains relevant, fresh, and attuned with the competitive market.

A brainchild of Christian von Keonigsegg, the Agera is a throwback to the past but manages to reach out to the future. Though it remains true to its original look and design, the Agera offers a fresh driving experience for the driver and passengers. The functionality of the Agera is breaking new grounds in terms of control, handling, speed, comfort, and practicality for all hypercars in the market.
