Koenigsegg announces updates for 2013 Agera and Agera R

The Koenigseeg Agera was officially unveiled in 2010 and now, for the 2013 model year, the Swedish company has already announced a series of eight new updates. The best part is that these changes are not limited to just the exterior of the car. Koenigsegg has managed to obtain an extra 20 HP for the standard Agera and 25 HP for the Agera R .

The exterior changes include the world’s first hollow, one piece, super light carbon fiber wheel, using a proprietary method developed by Koenigsegg named Aircore Technology. This helps in reducing the total weight by 44 lbs. Koenigsegg has also installed new front/side winglets for the Agera R that provide 20kg/44 lbs more downforce at 155 mph, as well as reduced drag.

The car’s engine uses nano-surfaced cylinder sleeves, from ANS, for reduced friction and fuel consumption. Thanks to a new in-house developed engine management system and a rev limiter raised from 7250rpm to 7500rpm, the total output has been increased from 940 to 960 HP for the Agera and from 1,115 to 1,140 HP for the Agera R!

Next to these changes, the company has also installed a unique Triplex suspension - standard on the 2013 Agera R - and a new, lighter rear exhaust section. The KES (Koenigsegg Electronic Stability) is now standard on all Koenigsegg models.

Wow, think of what these updates can do for Agera R. The last thing I know, Agera R merely passed Nurburgring with an astounding record.

The updates were sort of unnecessary since these models are already dynamic as they are. However, the want to get better has made them more wonderful.

This is totally random, but I just want to express my deep admiration with Koenigsegg. From the start, their innovation was outstanding. There is no doubt that these updates will bring Agera and Agera R to newer heights.

I like its overall style; the fierce look of its exterior is captivating. In 3 years of 8 eight updates, they have gradually enhanced this ingeniously.

They seemed to work a lot on making these faster. The drag reduction and the use of light weight materials will totally boost up its speed more, not to mention the increase in horsepower.

t’s really impressive how they can create such advanced paces at the same time not appending burden to the car, instead they’re actually able to lessen its weight. I’ve got to stay tuned in for more information on these few models. I need more data to contrast and compare.
