Koenigsegg Agera LIVE in Geneva - First Video Released

Redefining desire

Koenigsegg has unveiled the Agera concept at the Geneva Motor Show.

Built to celebrate the company's 15th anniversary, the Agera aims to "take the Koenigsegg experience to the next level, both on the road and the track."

Power comes from a twin-turbo 4.7-liter V8 with 910 PS (669 kW / 898 hp) and 1100 Nm (811 lb-ft) of torque. It allows the 1290kg (2832 lbs) Agera to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.1 seconds, before topping out at 390+ km/h (245+ mph).

Other performance features include specially developed Michelin tires, an adjustable anti-lock braking system (with 392x36 and 380x34 ventilated and drilled ceramic discs), and an advanced traction control system.

According to Koenigsegg, "The pre-production show car will be put through its phases for the coming six month prior to the production car launch of the Agera." When launched, the Agera will be built alongside the CCX and CCXR.

a manual is good if there's a maximum of 600 hp, but if the power is higher than this you definitely need flappy paddles or some kind of semiautomatic gearbox

Also what is really nice with the automated manuals you can not miss a shift and that can save a costly mistake

With 3 second cars manuals are too slow for the technology. With hypercars you need automatic manuals for the faster technology

Remember though that if you're limiting the discussion strictly to ultra powerful supercars and their 0-60mph/0-100kmh times, then the transmission type is irrelevant as most of them are capable of making the 0-60 run in 1st gear, therefore the time spent shifting gears is not a factor. 1/4 mile times, road course lap times, 0-300km/h times...transmission type definitely a factor.

I wish Koenigsegg would stop saying "245+ mph" and actually measure it properly. Maybe they don't want to get caught up in the race for a Guiness World Record, but I don't like being given a vague number as an official figure.

Hmm, one important thing to note is that the Agera seems to have some sort of an automated gearbox with flappy paddle controls instead of the manual offered in the older models from Koenigsegg.
