The Koenigsegg Agera RS was first introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in March, 2015.

25 cars will be built in the Agera RS series. 10 of those cars were pre-sold before the first showing and only a handful remain unsold right now. We expect those remaining orders to be filled very soon. Four RS’s are complete as I write this. Another six cars are on the production line with more waiting to start. In fact, with the combination of Agera RS and Regera orders that we have on our books right now, the Koenigsegg factory is booked out for the next two years!

About Build #128

The seventh car to join the production line is chassis #128 and the owner of this car has given us permission to follow his car’s build on this website, from start to finish! This is going to be an epic build story taking place over six months or so, with as much detail as I’m allowed to show you.

It’s also an important build because chassis #128 is going to be the first RS build that’s fully homologated and road-legal for the United States of America.

The USA has not been a huge market for Koenigsegg in historical terms – the vast majority of our cars are sold to Europe, the Middle East and Asia – but the USA is a market we are dedicating more time to with the release of the Agera RS and the forthcoming Regera. Gaining US homologation is a complex and expensive process that has to be re-done with each new model variant, but it’s one we committed ourselves to some time ago.

We will introduce you to our #Build128 customer later in the piece and he’ll share more about the way he’s specified the car and why. Every Koenigsegg car is hand-made in our factory in Ängelholm and every Koenigsegg order is just as much a personal process. I’m sure you’ll enjoy this one.

About the Agera RS

The Agera RS follows hot on the heels of the groundbreaking Koenigsegg One:1, taking much of what we learned from designing the One:1 and applying it to the Agera R and Agera S models that preceded it. At 1395kg curb weight, the Agera RS is lighter than either the Agera R (1435kg) and Agera S (1415kg). It has more power, up from 1030hp in the Agera S to an incredible 1160hp on regular fuel. Aerodynamics are improved, with new sideskirts, front splitter, front winglets, hydraulic ride height adjustment, fully active rear wing and and under-body flaps.

The Agera RS has been designed as a road-legal car with a track focus. The acceleration is blistering but as always with Koenigsegg, it’s not just about straight line speed. The Agera RS will pull up to 1.75G in the corners thanks to our Triplex suspension, Michelin tyres and aerodynamic upgrades, including a new rear deck spoiler that provides over 450kg of downforce at 250km/h.

Owners get all of this world-beating performance, plus our usual full complement of luxury and convenience appointments. Koenigsegg is still the only hypercar manufacturer in the world to offer a removable roof as standard equipment on every car we build. All cars have custom-made interiors featuring our client’s choice of materials as well as the full suite of electronic aides and entertainment options.

Not much has been written about the Agera RS since Geneva and there are two primary reasons for that. First, we had a summer full of events with the Koenigsegg One:1 – our record-setting runs at Suzuka and Spa, our 0-300-0km/h sprint and events at Goodwood, Monterey and with Castrol. Secondly, all the RSs we’ve built so far have gone to customers rather than into a press fleet, which is why you haven’t seen much of it in magazines, etc.

The #Build128 project will continue until the car is delivered mid-2016. You can follow our progress here on the Koenigsegg website, or on our social channels via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

    That’s amazing. Mr Koenigsegg should make a movie about his car company while he is still alive. To show all the achievements and records that Koenigsegg have been able to accomplish in its short life. It’s amazing.
    I’d love to see a movie about Koenigsegg apart from megafactories.
    Thanks

    I love Koenigsegg but I just wondering if the customers can be able to get a One:1 although they’re sold out but pay extra to have one of their own

    • Comment by Steven Wade

      Steven Wade November 25, 2015 at 05:53

      No. The One:1 is done.

      Customers can get a One:1 engine upgrade for their car, which will give them extra power. The One:1 had a lot of bespoke carbonfibre layup as well, however, and this is something we can’t retrofit (without taking the car to pieces completely) and therefore don’t offer.

    Thats so awesome!!! Looks like a sweet build… Based on the specs and how I would drive it if I had the money i would not worry about it being registered! but thats just me 🙂

    Loved the article on the Holy Trinity. Sweet comparison! The figures are quiet unbelievable though, some three seconds gap between the One:1 and the LaFerrari for the 0-300 km/h sprint. Hell, can’t imagine what that must feel like.

    So If I am not mistaken, the best options right now are either a Regera or an Agera RS with the One:1 engine. The latter will go from 0 – 300 km/h in under 12 seconds, if the engine still makes 1360 horsepower. On the other hand, Regera should be even quicker… Right?
