The press conference with only ONE car, though with this company, one is definitely enough. Koenigsegg brought their Agera R to the 2014 New York International Auto Show. Christian Von Koenigsegg, the founder and CEO of Koenigsegg, personally came and presented the Agera to the show. He claims that this vehicle was designed for the daily driver. Don’t let the low ground clearance fool you, the hydraulic suspension control can provide additional drivability for riding in everyday roads.
Every aspect of this car is bespoke, from the engine to the suspension. The car’s structure is entirely made of carbon fiber down to the wheels. The shift to carbon fiber wheel saves weight by more than 20% 30%-40% compared to that of a forged magnesium wheel. The engine is a 5 liter twin turbo direct injected making 1100 HP on 91 octane and 1200 on E85.
We got to speak with Mr Koenigsegg himself and asked him what his projected sales were for this year. He expects to sell around 3-4 cars this year and 6-7 by the next, after expansion to the west coast. At $1.6 million you can help Mr. Koenigsegg fulfill his goal.
