Koenigsegg’s Agera RS is already known (and feared) as baddest production car around, having claimed numerous speed records back in 2017, but we’ve now learned that there’s an even meaner replacement on course.
The Swedish hypercar specialist has released a teaser sketch of said replacement, far ahead of its scheduled debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2019.
There’s not much else to go on for now, except perhaps for an interview that founder Christian von Koenigsegg had with Top Gear recently, in which he stated that the new car would be “more race-like” and “even more extreme” than the current Agera RS.
Koenigsegg also told the British publication that it won’t feature hybrid technology, but rather a development of the current twin-turbo V8 petrol.
So, to recap, today’s Agera RS is built around a lightweight carbon fiber and aluminum honeycomb monocoque structure and is powered by a 5-litre twin-turbo V8 that pelts out 1014kW and 1371Nm, when run on E85 fuel.
In 2017, it claimed five new world records, including that for the highest speed achieved by a production car (446.97km/h) and the 0-400-0 record (33.29 seconds).
