Lightly Used 2018 Koenigsegg Agera RSN Looking for Fabulously Wealthy New Owner

Koenigsegg is a supercar brand perpetually on the outside, looking in on the established aristocracy. One can only assume long celebrated German and Italian supercar makers get pretty salty when a scrappy Swedish company builds something that does their job seemingly better than they can.

But hey, life is rarely fair. But in a world of haves and have-nots, the 2018 2018 Koenigsegg Agera RSN has the goods that few other hypercars can offer. The Agera was a watershed model for Koenigsegg. The successor to the fire-breathing CCX and CCXR, the Agera was built with two goals in mind. These were A: to be the finest hypercar ever constructed and B: to beat the Bugatti Veyron.

Well, it more or less succeeded at both objectives. Reaching a straight line one-way top speed of 458 km/h (285 mph) and a combined two-way speed of 447 km/h (278 mph) in 2017. Granted, this would go on to be bested by the Veyron's successor, the Chiron. But for a brief period, the Agera was the fastest car in the world.

As for the Agera RSN, think of it like a normal version of the Agera RS with extra liberal helpings of special sauce limited to 25 units for the entire planet. With added goodies like a removable hard top, limited edition deep blue paint with black striping, and a fully revamped aerodynamics package, the Agera RSN was as good of a car as ever did come out of Sweden in the year 2018.

With 7,500 miles (12,070 km) on the odometer, it's clear the last owner wasn't an all-show, no-go garage princess. Whoever they were, they loved to drive the snot out of this 1,160 horsepower, five-liter turbo V8 monster. With most supercars, this mileage would throw a monkey wrench into the pricing. But one can only assume a car as special as this one is more protected from depreciation than the average Ferrari.

At an asking price of £3,600,000 ($4,371,027), this is a car for someone who'd rather drive themselves around in a cloud of tire smoke than be driven around in a Rolls-Royce or Maybach at slightly under the speed limit.
