The End of the Agera Era

The Koenigsegg Agera range of vehicles is now complete. The final two Ageras, individually named as Thor and Väder and collectively known as Final Edition cars, have now been completed at the Koenigsegg factory in Ängelholm, Sweden.

The vehicles will be driven by their new owners for the first time at a company event in southern Germany on the weekend beginning July 6. They will then be shipped to the United Kingdom for activities at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The Final Edition designation is, in effect, a series within a series. The cars form part of the three-car Agera Final series first announced in March 2016. They have been named as ‘Final Edition’ cars by their owners with the consent of Koenigsegg Automotive. The Agera Final series is based on the Agera RS but with all options available to owners at no additional cost, including the development of bespoke aerodynamic solutions.

Thor is finished in two-tone clear carbon with diamond-flake in select sections of the paintwork. The body features a large LeMans-style central fin for high-speed stability as well as Koenigsegg’s traditional active aerodynamic solutions.

Väder is finished in traditional clear carbon with diamond flake and features two small rear winglets and highlights finished in white gold leaf. The enlarged rear spoiler is supported by strakes with bespoke cutouts that reveal the skeleton supporting the function of the active rear wing.

Both cars incorporate custom-designed front winglets, enlarged front and rear spoilers and the 1MW engine upgrade.

The Agera line has been Koenigsegg’s longest-lived model range, spanning from 2010 to 2018. The Agera marked Koenigsegg’s change from supercharging to turbocharging, giving rise to the 1,360hp ‘megawatt’ engine first used in the revolutionary One:1. The range inspired the development of Koenigsegg’s unique Triplex suspension system, numerous aerodynamic advances and the Aircore hollow-spoke carbonfibre wheel. Various multiple straight-line and circuit speed records have been set by Ageras beginning with the Agera R’s 0-300-0 km/h record in 2011, rounded out by the 5 world speed records set by the Agera RS in November 2017.

A replacement for the Agera line is due for unveiling at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.

      Maybe it is actually meant as Thor and wearher. Since Thor is the god for thunder and lightning. Just a thought of mine an NOT the correct answer. But i think I am close 🙂
