Three Koenigseggs "Drag Race", Unleash 4,080 HP On The Street

Ladies and gentlemen drivers, allow me to point out that, between them, the three Koenigseggs sitting before us pack no less than 4,080 horsepower, which is quite a lot even by octane junkie standards. So when the drivers of the Angelholm machines decided to get together and have a bit of fun, the result was predictably explosive.

We're talking about some stop light shenanigans here. Now, as you'll get to notice in the piece of footage at the bottom of the page, which documents the stunt, not all three aficionados were uber-serious about seeing which one can get to the next light first, hence the quotes used in the title above.

Then again, the hooners did introduce the gas pedal to the floor, with this also resulting in a menacing soundtrack. After all, we're talking about the Koenigsegg Agera RS here, with this being animated by a twin-turbo 5.0-liter V8 that places 1,360 hp at the mercy of the driver's right foot.

The Agera RS is still the holder of multiple acceleration, top speed and braking world records, so you'll now get to enjoy a day in the live of such a four-wheeled celebrity.

In fact, we know the name of each car. We're talking about Thor and Vader, which are the two of the three final Ageras that rolled off the factory gates in Angelholm.

Long story short, these machines mix the Agera RS spec with the full list of options, while also packing custom aero bits.

Then we have Phoenix, which used to be owned by supercar collector Manny Khoshbin.

Interestingly, the said aficionado sold the Swedish brute after only six months of ownership. However, the reason might've been related more to finance than anything else, since the machine, which reportedly cost him $2.2 million reportedly traded hands for $4.1 million. So try to keep these numbers in mind while you check out the K trifecta playing and please don't use this as an example (head for the track when the speeding urges show up).
