A feast of supercars will steal the limelight this year at the annual Geneva auto convention. Lamborghini will unwrap its Aventador LP700-4 and Pagani will reveal the Huayra for the first time. The other Italian heavyweight, Ferrari will drive in with the FF, two-door, four-seat hatchback with a huge engine and looks that will surely turn on a swine or a cow. With a flurry of Italian metal display, the Swedes have had to think of ways to grab attention of show-goers and they surely ain’t holding anything back.
Koenigsegg will showcase an insane and loud version of the Agera. Dubbed the Agera R, will feature a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 with a gut wrenching 1,115 bhp and 885 torques that would have the Italian exotics for breakfast. The 7-Speed dual-clutch transmission will haul this heap of carbon fibre upwards of 250 mph.
The car that will be on display has been built as per owner request and is outfitted with a custom carbon fiber roof box developed in conjunction with Thule and can be swapped with a standard Agera roof. However, the Agera R’s carbonfibre monocoque is so strong that it maintains all its rigidity even without the roof. The Koenigsegg Agera R comes fitted with Vortex Generating Rim (VGR) wheels whose spokes act as turbine vanes that help maximize downforce. Special Michelin rubber wraps over the rims and are the highest speed rated tires in the world, rated at 260 mph.
