The engine is mated to a newly-developed seven-speed gearbox, which combines a dual clutch system with a single input shaft gearbox for the first time, resulting in extremely fast gear changes.
This is no American heavyweight car either, as the monocoque chassis weighs only 70 kg and the dry weight of the car is 1,330 kg, making it the lightest fully homologated hypercar in production, according to Koenigsegg.
All these improvements translate into a theoretical top speed of 440 km/h (273 mph), which the Agera would reach were it not limited to 375 km/h (233 mph).
The model seen on display here comes with a winter package which includes among others a carbon fiber roof box made by Thule. It can be used safely at speeds of up to 300 km/h (186 mph).
“Last year Koenigsegg presented a pre-production version of the upcoming Koenigsegg Agera. Since then the pre-production car and several test mules have continued the Agera development program. The Agera pre-production car has been driven by several influential motoring journals, resulting in raving reviews and awards, such as for example becoming the Top Gear Hypercar of the Year,” stated the official press release.
