Used Koenigsegg Agera For Sale
One of Von Koenigsegg’s many masterpieces, the Koenigsegg Agera for sale, is an ultralight, ultra-agile track car that defines an age. With only 25 produced, this collector’s item is built out of lightweight carbon fiber and includes the niceties of a streetcar, like a luggage rack and detachable roof for an open-air experience. In fact, the vehicle, though made for the track, is fully street legal. The Agera RS includes track-ready enhancements like front splitter and winglets, sound insulation and an active rear spoiler, just to name a few. The Agera RS is one of the most powerful Koenigsegg models, boasting a staggering 1,160 horsepower pumped out of a 5.0- liter V8 engine. Top speeds exceed 260 mph, and the vehicle will reach 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds. For enthusiasts who don’t shy away from power, the Agera RS is the perfect companion. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic sends power to an electronic differential equipped with their own stability and traction control systems.

The $1.7-million Agera R is one of the world’s most expensive cars, but it pales in comparison to the Agera S Hundra, which celebrates ten years of the Swedish brand and its 100th model with a special one-off package featuring pure gold inlays. It went for an amazing $4.2 million in Singapore.
It’s just another record to put under the Agera’s belt, which now includes the quickest 0–186–0 mph time ever verified, plus a slew of unofficial high-speed achievements performed in the Agera R. While the new Agera S is setting price records, it isn’t going to be stealing any of the Agera R’s speed records. And that’s because it doesn’t get access to the beneficial qualities of E85 biofuel. It’s that fuel’s higher octane rating and cooling abilities that give the Agera R its 1,140 horsepower, but the Agera S’s 1,030-horsepower is still quite extreme, and well more than the 960 horsepower of the base Agera.
You may have noticed the slightly inflated horsepower figures above for the Agera and Agera R. That’s due to a number of changes for 2014, the other big one being a third shock absorber that connects the right and left wheels. It is designed to cancel out the negative effects of the anti-roll bar, and reduce squat under hard acceleration. This allowed engineers to actually lower the spring rate without affecting the car’s handling abilities. We wouldn’t say this extreme exotic is starting to look like a hyper GT, but you are getting more for the money.

The Agera R is capable of 273 mph. Let that figure sink in for a moment. To put it in perspective, imagine the highway speeds you might travel at on your commute to work each morning (if you’re lucky enough not to be in gridlock) and then add two hundred miles per hour. Maybe your morning commute involves jet travel takeoff speed for a Boeing 737 is a mere 150 mph and it usually takes around 25 seconds to get there. In that amount of time, the Agera R will go from zero to 200 mph and brake back to a stop again. Just in time to watch your 737 finally lift off. When Christian von Koenigsegg, the hypercar company’s eponymous 42-year-old founder set out to create the Agera R, his point was not to build a rolling list of superlatives. Instead, the resulting machine is a genuine sports car, composed of an ultra-lightweight carbon-fiber and aluminum honeycomb typically reserved for fighter jets and Formula 1 cars. Channeling more horsepower than a Bugatti Veyron 16.4 through just the rear wheels, and with 800 fewer pounds to haul around, the resulting car’s performance is eye-opening, to say the least. The leap to 60 mph is more an exercise in traction control than of engine performance, and it still arrives in a fleet 2.8 seconds. It’s at this point that the Agera R really begins building speed: 124 mph arrives in just 7.5 seconds, 188 mph (the magic 300 km/h mark) arrives in 14.5 seconds, and 200 mph is just a further 3 seconds away.
It doesn’t even matter that owners won’t be able to find a place to test their car’s theoretical 273 mph top speed. At the Koenigsegg’s price point, exclusivity and bragging rights are the main draws. The Agera R is likely to make the Veyron look as commonplace as a VW Golf owing to its microscopic production numbers– only 100 cars with the Koenigsegg badge have rolled out in the 10 years since the company’s formation. Three times that amount were produced during the Veyron’s production run. Trying to find an instrumented road test of the Koenigsegg Agera R is a more difficult task, despite the fact they’ve been in production for more than a year. That’s the kind of exclusivity money doesn’t always buy, but in the Agera R’s case, it does.
