The 2012 Pebble Beach Concours ended a long time ago, but it looks like vehicles from the show continues to appear. Today, we have a new episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, featuring the amazing Koenigsegg Agera R supercar.

In this video, Jay Leno doesn’t run the show, but Christian von Koenigsegg himself takes the lead and talks about one of the most impressive supercars the company has ever developed. He explains how easy this car can be transformed into a daily driver. In all honesty, we are not sure if it’s worth starting up the 5.0-liter V8 with twin turbos just to go to the corner, but hey, to each his own. We’d rather use the engine’s 1,140 HP for what it’s really supposed to do: beat someone to the line in style.

For anyone in the U.S. trying to do just that, they can now order the Agera R if they have the cool $1.5 million to spend.

R. Atkinson a.k.a. Mr. Bean has a McLaren F1 and he drives it quite often. So why not use a more modern and easier to drive car just to go around the corner and buy bread? Although i guess i wouldn’t choose the closest shop to buy the bread if i went out with this car.
