One American client will have his Koenigsegg Agera RS build documented.
A few weeks back we learned that Koenigsegg was going to give fans a behind-the-scenes look at the process of building an Agera RS. Remember the Agera RS? It debuted earlier in the year at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show with a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine good for 1,160 horsepower. It weighed in at a trim and slim 3,000 pounds thanks to lightweight features like wheels made of pure carbon fiber. Then, by Koenigsegg’s own admission, there was radio silence on the Agera RS.
That silence was due to the supercar company’s packed summer schedule featuring record-setting lap times and other awesomeness. However, the Agera RS is back in the spotlight on the automaker’s blog, specifically chassis No. 128. What makes this car so special? For starters, the owner gave Koenigsegg full permission to document the build process. Oh, and it’s also the first “RS fully homologated and road-legal for the United States of America.” This Agera RS is the seventh one to hit the production line; remember that only 25 will be made with 10 pre-ordered before the vehicle even made its official debut. Making-of videos and blog posts, such as the Ford Focus RS documentary series, are all equally awesome.
That being said when the car involved is ultra-rare and ridiculously powerful, well let’s just pull an “Animal Farm” and say some making-ofs are more equally awesome than others. We’ll keep an eye on the Koenigsegg blog and will share any interesting details that come out from the build process as well as the identity of the #Build128 (that’s the automaker’s hashtag) owner when it’s revealed.
