2015 Geneva: Koenigsegg Agera RS is the ultimate track tool

Article by Christian A., on March 10, 2015

Besides the Regera, Koenigsegg also brought to the 2015 Geneva Motor Show the new Agera RS, an updated version of its well-known model that offers a new level of performance. Using advanced technology from the One:1 program, the Agera RS maintains all the features and functionalities of previous S and R models, but also keeps the Agera’s everyday usability such as the luggage compartment, rear window as well as the detachable and storable hardtop.

The Agera RS arrives with a lightweight sound insulation, a new front splitter optimized on the track, front winglets, side skirts, an advanced dynamic underbody flap system and a dynamically active rear spoiler, which can generate 450 kg of down force at 250 km/h or 155 mph. In addition, there are improved side air outlets located behind the front wheels.

Compared with the standard model, the Agera RS is more powerful, while the rpm limit was increased. Despite the additional functionality and equipment, Koenigsegg managed to lower the curb weight using advanced chassis and body composites and lay-up.

As an option, the Koenigsegg Agera RS is available with the Koenigsegg active and self-levelling chassis package, 3G connected Pre-Active chassis setups, alternative aero package and active sound cancellation.

Lifestyle options include a Diamond encrusted key fob, sound system, parking sensors, rear view camera, front and stone chip protection film, a luggage set, winter wheel package and aero carbon softline roof box.

The interior can be fitted, as an option, with anodizing, contrasting stitching and/or piping, pattern or floor mats/roof/black wall. Optional functionality for Agera RS include front hood vents for increased downforce, an active front venture flap system under splitter inspired by the One:1, active ride height and shock absorber system, integrated side winglets for reduced drag as well as a roof scoop.

Just like the Agera, the RS version uses the same 5.0-liter V8 engine that produces an impressive 1,160 hp o regular pertrol, which means 232 hp per liter. For even higher power levels, the Agera RS can be upgraded to run on E85 with fuel flex capabilities. The bad news is that only 25 units will ever be built and 10 of them were already pre-sold by Koenigsegg.
