Video: Making of the Koenigsegg Agera

At the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, Koenigsegg wowed the world with the unveiling of the Agera supercar, a model that soon become the world’s most favorite supercar. The reasons behind the title are quite simple. The Agera is powered by a 4.7 liter V8 engine that delivers a total of 910hp at the 6850rpm-redline and a peak torque of 1100Nm at 5100rpm. Adding fuel to the fire is a top speed of 245 mph coming out of the beautiful and unique supercar.

With such a devoted fanbase, it seemed 100% worthwhile for National Geographic’s Megafactories to do a complete feature on the Agera, detailing the making of the supercar down to what made Christian von Koenigsegg start developing it at such a young age. Other features of the film include the two week process that makes up the hand-built 4.7 liter V8 engine, the seven station method used to build the vehicle from nothing to extravagant supercar, and even a bit of the brand’s history.

The series of videos is about 45 minutes long so it would be smart to grab some popcorn, get comfortable, and watch them straight through for the full effect!

Hit the jump for parts 2 and 3 of the movie.

Actually, I am a big fan of the Mega Factories series. I really like how they were able to get the details about heir features, especially the one they did on the Apache helicopter. Is also going to be a favorite of mine.

Well, that one was definitely quite interesting. I really liked that they went into great detail just to explain how the car is made. Makes me even more appreciative of this one.

Yup, that certainly looks like the Stig, but I really doubt that it is him for real. TopGear has already become strict with the guy’s appearance ever since Ben Collins bolted out.

What do Japanese and German companies will say about this car? I’m glad to watch the making of the most amazing car in the world of sportscar! The figure performance of this car is extremely amazing.1100Nm at 5100rpm is just enough to make this car runs like rocket in the track! However, the real deal would be competing against the most powerful engine in the market.
