The Koenigsegg Agera – the world’s fastest production car in 2017 | XIT4U

The Koenigsegg Agera

The Koenigsegg Agera is a mid-engine sports car produced by Swedish car manufacturer Koenigsegg. It is a successor to the CCX/CCXR. The name comes from the Swedish verb ‘agera’ which means “to act” or in imperative form “(You) act!”.

It was named Hypercar of the Year in 2010 by Top Gear magazine. The Agera RS variant became the world’s fastest production car in 2017, setting a record with a GPS-verified two-way average top speed of 447 km/h (278 mph) and a fastest straight-line speed of 458 km/h (285 mph).

The Agera ceased production in July 2018 with the unveiling of the two final edition cars at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed. It was succeeded by the Jesko in 2019.

Engine and transmission

The 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine

The Agera is powered by an in-house developed 5.0-litre V8 engine based on the Ford modular engine block and fitted with twin-turbochargers which generates a maximum power output of 706 kW (960 PS; 947 hp) at 6,900 rpm and 1,100 N⋅m (811 lbf⋅ft) of torque at 4,000 rpm. The total weight of the engine is only 197 kg (434 lb) due to a carbon fibre inlet manifold and aluminium construction. The transmission is a specially developed 7-speed dual-clutch with paddle shifters. It is the first dual-clutch transmission to feature only one input shaft. The second clutch slows down the input shaft during up shifts in order to reduce the time it takes to synchronise the next gear, resulting in faster shift times. Most notably, the transmission weighs only 81 kg (179 lb).

Performance (manufacturer claimed data)

  • 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in 2.8 seconds
  • 0–200 km/h (0–124 mph) in 8.0 seconds
  • 0–200–0 km/h (0–124–0 mph) in 13.5 seconds

The top speed for the production model is claimed to be 400 km/h (249 mph).



Exterior and interior

The Agera has a body made from impregnated carbon fibre/kevlar with lightweight reinforcements. The car’s hardtop roof is stowable under the front hood lid. The chassis is also made out of carbon fibre with an aluminum honeycomb structure that comes with integrated fuel tanks for optimal weight distribution and safety. The rear wing is electronically adjustable with auto setting or manual control in order to have as little compromise as possible between low drag and downforce, depending on driving conditions. The Agera comes with forged aluminum wheels with centre locking nuts, measuring 19-inch on the front and 20-inch on the rear and wrapped in a set of Michelin Super Sport tyres that can be used for speeds of up to 420 km/h (260 mph). Other notable features include the trademark Dihedral synchro helix actuation doors, a new traction control system, LED lighting, blue hood stripes that continue on through the cockpit of the car and a custom interior with a new “Ghost light” lighting system, which uses carbon nanotubes in a unique configuration to shine through the car’s aluminum buttons.
