End of an AgERA?

Koenigsegg has decided to call to an end their historic Agera model. It's won the company so many awards and made them a credible challenger to the likes of Bugatti, Hennessey and more. 

First established in 1994, their sole goal was to create the perfect supercar. Since then, they have taken the supercar market to new heights and etched their name in the history books for many years to come. 

Their final two models have been named Thor (the God of thunder) and Vader (that guy). It's yet to be confirmed but there are rumours circulating that the engine will be a 5L Twin-Turbo V8 engine which churns out a monstrous 1,360 horsepower.

Imagine that.

Let's take a closer look at Thor and Vader

Koenigsegg Agera FE - Thor 

Containing a carbon finish and the use of diamond flakes on sections of its body. It's distinguishable through its fin which has been placed on the central spine of the car. This was designed to help with traction and stability at high speeds.

Sporting a similar carbon finish, it contains two small winglets at the rear of the car. In addition to this, the aero parts of the car have been accentuated with a golden colour. Finally, one feature which stands out is the noticeably bigger rear spoiler. This was designed to improve the car's aerodynamic efficiencies when negotiating corners and more.

Final Words

The Agera was heralded as a breakaway from a tradition which saw continual improvement to its CC model. 

This freedom enabled new heights to be reached such as groundbreaking One:1 which produces one horsepower for each 1kg of weight!

Both cars have already been sold but you could have seen them at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Even though they will be the last, Koenigsegg is already at work with their new car expected next year at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
