One of the fastest and most ferocious supercars ever to grace asphalt is about to grace America's, too.
Got seven figures to spend on a supercar and live in the US? We've got good news for you, because the Koenigsegg Agera R is coming to America. The Swedish boutique supercar manufacturer just made the announcement the other day on its website, following the car's unveiling at Pebble Beach during The Quail and the McCall Motorworks Revival, where it garnered enough attention from interested parties for Koenigsegg to launch it on this side of the Atlantic.
The Agera R represents the ultimate embodiment of Christian von Koenigsegg's dream. With a twin-turbo 5.0-liter V8 generating 1,100 horsepower and 885 lb-ft of torque, the Agera R boasts one of the highest power-to-weight ratios in the business and can accelerate from 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds and hit a top speed in excess of 245 mph. What Koenigsegg didn't disclose, however, is exactly how much the Agera R will cost in the US market. Given the million-dollar-plus asking prices for previous examples of the Scandinavian hypercar, however, we have the distinct feeling this is one of those cases of "if you have to ask, you can't afford it".
