2011 Geneva Motor Show: Koenigsegg Agera R

With Ferrari unveiling the FF as the successor to the 612 Scaglietti and Lamborghini unwrapping the cover of the new Aventador LP700-4 at the Geneva Motor Show, Swedish firm Koenigsegg feels the need to pull the trump card.

On display at the Koenigsegg stand is this 1115 horsepower monster, the Koenigsegg Agera R. It features a new 5.0 litre v8 with two turbochargers developing 940 horsepower 1100 Nm on regular fuel and a monstrous 1115 horsepower 1200Nm on bio-ethanol E85.

0-100kph is achieved in under 3 seconds and 200kph is reached in just 8 seconds. No official figure has been released regarding its top speed but tires with speed rating of 419 kph (260 mph) found on the Agera R is enough to indicate its top speed.
