Last year, Koenigsegg figuratively blew the roof off the 2014 Geneva Motor Show with its competition-annihilating Agera One:1 – the world’s first “megacar” with 1,341 horsepower, a 273 mph top speed, and a true one-to-one power to weight ratio. What a machine.
A year has since passed and it appears the Swedes are at it again. On its Facebook page, Koenigsegg has revealed that a new Agera RS model will debut in Geneva for 2015. It’ll undoubtedly pack more of a punch than the already bonkers Agera R… but just how much does that extra ‘S’ bring to the equation? We’ll find out on March 5.
So far, nothing is known about the clandestine supercar, but we’re likely to see a significant evolution of the current ‘R’ model (seen above). It packs a twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V8 that produces 1,140 horsepower and 885 lb-ft of torque.
Zero to 200 mph takes just 17.68 seconds. Expect the ‘RS’ to slice a chunk out of that. Rumors began circulating after a newer Agera production mule crashed on the Nurburgring late last year. Potentially, this could be the spawn of that car.
Regardless of its to-infinity-and-beyond specs, the Agera RS is certainly not alone in the top strata of the supercar world. There’s the new Bugatti Chiron – rumored to produce 1,500 horsepower – as well as the Hennessey Venom F5 with a target 290 mph top speed, plus the obligatory McLaren P1, Ferrari LaFerrari, and Porsche 918 hybrid hypercars. Tough market.
