Sports this week: Agere Koenigsegg

Koenigsegg AgereAmong the best supercars in the world present at the last Festival of Speed ​​at Goodwood, the Koenigsegg Agere has not had to blush. Neither of his tyle or performance.

Last year, Koenigsegg celebrated its 15 year history. A birthday that obviously wanted to celebrate the Swedish brand as it should. So she had the good idea to launch a new model, not least, the Agere. In Swedish, it means “doing.” Difficult to be clearer to describe such a powerful weapon.
For the Koenigsegg Agere is part of the top of the basket of supercars. It plays in the same league as the Bugatti Veyron, for example, as we have seen the last weekend at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Inspired by previous productions of the manufacturer, the Ager takes it the frame of the JRC and part of his body. It differs, however, with a new interior lighting that comes with the padded leather and bucket seats. Innovation of the brand, this light omposé invisible nanotube is used to inform the buttons and different surfaces.

But even more than its style or its interior, it is by its performance as impressive fireball. In figures, this gives a 0 to 100 km / h achieved in 3.1 seconds and a 0-200 km / h in 8 seconds. The weight / power? 1.42 kg / hp. A little crazy, yes.
The explanation for this incredible performance is simple and double both. First, the Agere weighs only 1290 kg. To keep a stable and prevent the craft to fly more than 390 km / h (max speed), Koenigsegg has worked on the rear wing, the tunnel effect venturi , and tires (Michelin of oversized : 255/35 ZR19 for the front and 335/30 ZR20 rear). Then, Agere is not a small player side engine. Under the hood, there is indeed a twin-turbo V8 5 liter 910 horsepower and 1100 Nm of torque.

In summary, guaranteed thrills. The Koenigsegg Agere has absolutely nothing to envy to other supercars. Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show 2010 , the model is produced in twenty units a year and sold around one million euros. He even saw a little brother to arrive in March at the Geneva Motor Show: the Ager R. An even more insane, if possible, with a 4.7 liter V8 biturbo raised to 1 115 horsepower and available for 155,000 euros more than the “classic”. At Koenigsegg, obviously, we always see more.Koenigsegg Agere
