Koenigsegg Agera RS1: The Perfect Blend of Performance and Exclusivity

Apr 14, 2017 07:00 AM EDT | Yen Palec

The annual New York Auto Show is considered as one of the biggest stages used by car manufacturers to show off their latest creations as well as future concepts. Swedish high-performance car manufacturer Koenigsegg Automotive will be displaying the Agera RS1 at the event.

The Koenigsegg Agera RS1 is a beast. It is the company's latest masterpiece and it is immaculate both on its exterior design and what is under the hood.

The interior of the Agera RS1 is adorned in a shade of blue which complements the Arctic White exterior according to Bloomberg. It has blue Alcantara which blends quite nicely with black anodized aluminum and polished carbon.

The Agera RS1 packs a stunning twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V8 engine which churns out 1,360-horsepower and 1,011 lb-ft of torque. The engine's power is mind-blowing that it can propel the car from zero to 62mph in just 2.8 seconds and can sprint from zero to 186mph in just 12.3 seconds.

The Koenigsegg Agera RS1 is able to pull off this massive feat because of its aerodynamic design and it is ridiculously light weight. The company was able to shave the Agera's weight down to just 3,076 pounds. This means that the supercar has an unbelievable power-to-weight ratio of 2.26 horsepower, according to Motor Authority.

The Agera is incredibly light despite the fact that it hosts quite a handful of features that are usually found on a conventional car. The car has satellite navigation, climate control, and most conventional electronic features.

Koenigsegg creations are known for marrying performance with exclusivity, and the new Agera RS1 is not an exception. The company plans to build only 25 units of this vehicle, and all of these cars are already booked as of January.
