Koenigsegg Agera XS Unveiled – First Agera RS To Hit The United States
This particular Koenigsegg Agera RS has been badged as the Agera XS and it will be the first Agera RS in the USA and is a fully homologated street legal car with the best power to weight ratio currently on the road. The car belongs to @lamborghiniks (most of you should know him) as he owns a Lamborghini Veneno too and has been finished in Karosserie Orange. This is an intense orange hue finished with diamond-dust metallic effect. Full press release can be seen below the photo’s.
The Megacar revolution is about to land on US roads. The Koenigsegg Agera RS showing at Monterey 2016 – badged as ‘Agera XS’ according to the wishes of its owner – will be the first Koenigsegg Agera RS in the United States and will be one of the most powerful, fully homologated, street legal production cars on American roads with the best power to weight ratio.
The Agera XS is presented in Karosserie Orange – an intense orange finish with diamond-dust metallic effect – and a clear carbon centre strip. The interior features black alcantara with orange contrast stitching to match the exterior. The Agera XS also comes with bespoke aerodynamics, including the largest rear wing ever fitted to a Koenigsegg, specifically designed to the owner’s wishes.
The Agera XS – as with every Koenigsegg ever made – has a removable lightweight hardtop that can be detached and/or reattached in minutes and is stored on-board, under the front hood of the car.
The Agera RS model is an evolution of the Koenigsegg One:1 and incorporates much of the technology developed during the creation of the Koenigsegg’s first ever Megacar, but with more creature comforts and practicality. It has a 5-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 engine mated to a CIMA 7-speed paddle-shift transmission, with Koenigsegg’s in-house developed, integrated E-diff.
The Agera RS includes all modern electronic aids and conveniences – smart airbags, detachable hardtop with lightweight roof, adjustable pedals and steering column, 6 way electrically adjustable carbon sport seats, carbon ceramic brakes with Sport ABS, KES (stability control) , front/rear hydraulic lifting system, active shock absorbers, active ride height, active front and rear aerodynamics, LifePo4 battery, Apple CarPlay, USB connection and media player, climate control, digital warning and information system, G sensor, alarm and tire monitoring system.
Despite all of this equipment, the Agera RS still weighs just 3,075 lbs including all fluids, ready to drive.
Christian von Koenigsegg: “It is a true pleasure for us to present the Agera XS at this year’s Monterey Car Week, especially as this is the first Agera RS that will be fully homologated for use on American roads. Our re-entry into the US market a watershed moment for our company and the Agera XS is the perfect car to emphasise this occasion.
The response to the Agera RS and the Regera in the USA has been overwhelming and we look forward to delivering the ultimate in automotive performance to our American customers in the very near future.”
