Koenignegg surprises us by revealing another model of the Agera. It has only been weeks ago that the Agera RS Gryphon was released at the Geneva Motor Show. Dubbed the Agera RS1, this model is commissioned by an American owner and his son who have been intensely involved in the specifications and the design of the car.
The RS1 looks so gorgeous with its Arctic White exterior paint with carbon fiber accents all over - black side intakes and a black stripe that runs along the roof of the car, combined with blue canards, calipers and side strakes. The cabin is finished with the same shade of blue in alcantara which contrasts with the polished carbon fiber and black anodized aluminum. It also has aerodynamic features as you would see on a standard Agera RS. This includes the integrated front spoiler, the side skirts, and of course, the rear wing.
Similar to other Koegnisegg models, the RS1 comes with a removable roof that is lightweight and can be stowed in the luggage compartment under the hood of the car. Up to date with technology, this includes a digital entertainment system, a climate control, Bluetooth integration, electric carbon fibre sports seats and many more features.
And we haven’t even started with its capabilities yet. In just a blink of an eye (well I’m exaggerating there), 2.8 seconds to be exact, the RS1 can speed up to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) from a standstill, and can reach up to triple the distance of 186 miles per hour (300 kph) in just 12.3 seconds. And it can hit a top speed on 273 miles per hour. This comes from Koegnisegg’s 5.0 liter biturbo V8 that can yield a whopping 1,360 horsepower (1,014 kilowatts) and 1,011 pound feet (1,370 Newton metres) of torque. This extra robust engine is paired with a seven-speed automatic gearbox, giving power to the rear-wheel drive. The RS1 has a curb weight of 3,075 pounds (1,394 kilograms), or 2,854 pounds (1,294 kilograms) dry weight.
Just one of the few awesome creations of Koegnisegg, like the RS Gryphon that had 24-karat gold leaf accents around the exterior, the Agera RS1 is going to be another limited hypercar. The Swedish company says that they will only be producing 25 units of the Agera RS1, which will still be distributed around Europe and the US. However, there has been no word on the release date of this model yet as well as its price.
So, hurry up and get your tickets to check out this Agera RS1 at the 2017 New York International Auto Show which will be held at the Javits Center starting this week up until the end of next week.
