Video: The Koenigsegg Agera visits Jay Leno’s Garage

Jay Leno received a very special guest in the form of the new Koenigsegg Agera supercar in the latest episode of Jay Leno’s Garage. The Agera is powered by the same 4.7 liter V8 engine that delivers a total of 910hp at the 6850rpm-redline and a peak torque of 1100Nm at 5100rpm. The car weighs only 2832lbs and sprints from 0 to 62 mph in 3.1 seconds and to 124mph in 8.9 seconds. Top speed goes up to more than 245 mph.

We were a bit surprised to see that Leno was not the one behind the wheel of this masterful vehicle, but then again, he gets to ride around in his very own Trevita CCXR delivering 1018hp so the Agera probably doesn’t do it for him anymore. We did, however, discover that the car was being driven by Justin Bell and Simon Le Bon of Duran Duran who took the exquisite supercar around the Goodwood race circuit.

Check out the video to see how they did!

A car, as special guest! That’s really awesome. Hey Mark, what is this all about? He’s famous and rich, right? Get the main point?

You could own one. Just depends on where you want to spend your money. If you want a big house with a bunch of crap in it, 2-3 kids to feed with daycare and other stuff they cost you, and smart phones with their expensive data plans, SUV that guzzle gas, then you’ll be in recurring payment hell. Just get a smallish house, drive a beater like me as your daily driver(paid off for >10 years) and don’t have any children, and rock a Nokia 2610 and you’ll have plenty of cash in the bank. Just depends on you what you want. To be in the rat race or not.
