Koenigsegg Agera R performance numbers are in


The Koenigsegg Agera R performance numbers are finally here. Since its debut at the Geneva Motor Show a few weeks ago, everyone was curious of how fast this car can go.

Previously we know that the Koenigsegg Agera R is powered by a 5.0-liter V8 engine producing 1,115 horsepower at 6,900 rpm when operating on E85 ethanol fuel, having said that, such fuel is not commonly found at the pumps. So Koenigsegg Agera R will have to run on 95 octane gasoline to produce about 940 horsepower, or 98 octane at 1,050 hp.

And here are the goodies. The Koenigsegg Agera R lives up to the its reputation of being a fast car. It can sprint from 0-62 mph in just 2.9 seconds, while 0-124 mph achieves at about 7.5 seconds. More impressively is the top speed achieved at over 261 mph. Stopping power is provided by a set of ventilated carbon ceramic brakes that enable it to stop from 124 mph to zero in just 12.7 seconds.

The Koenigsegg Agera R got all the cues of a supercar while providing some creature comfort amenities too. It comes with an adaptive rear wing, hydraulic lifting system, satellite navigation system, G-force sensor, leather carpets and a silver key.

The pricing has not yet been announced for the Koenigsegg Agera R, and it is expected to cost over €1,000,000 ($1,410,000).
