  • Koenigsegg Agera successor teaser

    We've known Koenigsegg has an Agera successor in the works, but now we have a few new details on the hypercar. Swedish newspaper Dagens Industri reported last Wednesday the Agera successor, which will debut in March at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show, will not wear the rumored Ragnarok name. The name first came to light last August after a McLarenlife forum member published details on the car. It turns out Ragnarok is only the car's internal name. Whatever Koenigsegg decides to call the Agera successor, it will be very exclusive. The newspaper reported the car will be limited to 125...

  • Koenigsegg Agera Final, 2016 Geneva Motor Show

    Koenigsegg on Wednesday announced that it is in the process of building its last two Agera hypercars, after which the company's sole product will be the Regera hybrid. The last Ageras are the two remaining examples of the three-car Agera Final collection announced in 2016. Koenigsegg presented the first Agera Final at that year's Geneva auto show. It isn't clear why the first of the three Agera Finals was already presented two years ago, though perhaps it's one of the final examples by VIN only, because we know 25 Agera RS cars were built after it. Buyers of the Agera Final were able to...

  • Koenigsegg Agera RS sets production car land speed record of 277.9 mph

    Sweden’s Koenigsegg has claimed the production car land speed record with its Agera RS hypercar. Factory driver Niklas Lilja was the man behind the wheel.

Per the standard format for setting a land speed record, Lilja made two runs in opposite directions within the space of an hour to eliminate the effects of gradients and wind, with the two recorded speeds then averaged. On one run Lilja reached 271.2 mph, and on the other he reached...
