Artist James Jean has somehow made the Agera look even more striking.
It's been a few years since the Koenigsegg Agera RS set no less than five speed records at Nevada, where it achieved an average top speed of 277.87 mph and hit 0-249-0 mph in 36.44 seconds. Since then, the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ became the first production car to break the 300-mph barrier, but rest assured Koenigsegg is coming back fighting with the Jesko Absolut, a 300 mph+ hypercar designed to smash speed records and beat Bugatti.
But now the Agera RS record car has returned for a special photoshoot. On Instagram, artist James Jean has shared images of his latest art car project based on the Agera RS record car. The result is the "world's fastest art car."
Dubbed Pomegranate, the Agera RS art car is wrapped in a colorful livery that makes the Swedish supercar look even more striking.
Combining shades of red, blue, green, purple, and pink, the colorful design is based on Jean's Pomegranate print, which depicts a woman using juice from a pomegranate fruit as makeup. Adapting the print to complement the Agera R's sharp lines, curves and aggressive aero wasn't easy, so the artist enlisted California-based Wrap Legends to create a custom wrap. The wrap was designed to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Festival of Children Foundation, a non-profit organization that "improves the lives of children by strengthening charities that serve them."
Powering the Koenigsegg Agera RS is a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 generating 1,176 horsepower and 940 lb-ft of torque as standard, while the One-Megawatt upgrade boosts the output to 1360 hp and 1,000 lb-ft. All that power is sent to the rear wheels through a seven-speed automatic transmission.
With the 1MW upgrade installed, the Agera RS rockets to 60 mph from a standstill in less than 2.9-seconds. During its fastest record attempt in Nevada, the Agera RS recorded a top speed of 284.55 mph. Only 25 examples of the Agera RS were produced, each costing $2.5 million.
