First Koenigsegg Agera R arrives on the US market

The 2013 Koenigsegg Agera R made its official debut earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show and now, a few months after the Quail and the McCall Motorworks Revival during the Pebble Beach weekend, the car has officially landed on the American market.

Christian von Koenigsegg welcomed many of the company’s current American clients, as well as many new ones, and he was pleased to inform everyone that the Agera R was given a warm welcome in the US.

The bad news about this scenario is the price tag. On the US market, the Agera R is priced at an impressive $1.5 million, but can get even more ridiculous considering Koenigsegg’s new bespoke personalization service. For the money, customers will get a supercar powered by a 5.0-liter V8 with twin turbos that delivers an impressive 1,115 HP. The car will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds and up to an impressive top speed of 273 mph.

If these stats are correct, then that would make this the fastest car in the world. Correct me if im wrong

@otto: wouldn’t you wish your koenigsegg was different than others for the 1.5 millions you would pay for it ?? because i know i would!

did they take it around the Nurburgring? oh, i forgot, people who pay that much money don’t really care about that, ’cause they have their own track smiley.

it may not be as luxurious as the veyron, but it sure is more of a driver’s car.

at 2.9 seconds acceleration to 60mph and 273 mph, does it come with a life insurance for the 1.5 mil you pay for it?

i think it’s funny to have "Extras" on a 1.5 million $ car. what can you add extra to it? will it be able to make fries?

i think the personalization service is just for show. it’s like "my koenigsegg is better than yours because i have the extra" something.

being able to beat a veyron comes at a price, right?
