We’ll find out if these claims are true at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
Now that the Agera has finished production, Koenigsegg is preparing its successor for its world debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show next March. Christian von Koenigsegg has promised the new model will be even more extreme than the Agera RS and Regera, which is a bold claim considering the Agera RS currently holds the production car top speed record. Koenigsegg hasn’t hinted what the Agera’s successor will be called, but The Supercar Blog is now claiming Koenigsegg's next hypercar will be called the “Ragnarok.”
This wouldn’t be the first time a Koenigsegg model has shared a connection with a Marvel movie either, as one of the last ever Ageras was named "Thor" after The God of Thunder. In Norse mythology, Ragnarok refers to the destruction of the world, death of the gods, and eventual rebirth, so it’s a suitable name for an earth-shatteringly powerful hypercar.
Speaking of which, a user on the McLaren Life forum is also claiming the Ragnarok’s engine will have a monumental 1,440 horsepower on tap. The engine will have some form of mild hybridization and have a redline of around 9,000 rpm. Koenigsegg is also allegedly targeting a weight below 2,646 pounds.
Since the car is being built from the ground up, the Agera successor will have a completely new design, which the user claims will share cues with the Regera and have a front that resembles the Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro. Christian Von Koenigsegg has already confirmed to us that the engine will be a lighter version of the company’s twin-turbo V8 and have mild hybridization but the other claims can’t be verified, so it’s best to take these rumors with a grain of salt for now.
