Limited to three units, all sold in Japan

The Koenigsegg Agera was launched in 2011, five years after the Swedish company introduced its first supercar, the CCX. Thoroughly redesigned inside and out, the Agera came with vast improvements compared to its predecessor, offering not just improved performance, but also a more luxurious interior and significantly more options for enhanced exclusivity. Over the years, Koenigsegg launched a few upgrades in the form of limited-edition models. The Agera R made its debut in 2011, followed by the Agera S in 2013. The more extreme One:1 with its outstanding power-to-weight ratio came in 2014, while the final iteration of the Agera, the RS, arrived in 2015. The nameplate is set to bow in 2016, when production of the Agera will come to a halt.

Koenigsegg unveiled the XS and the RS "Naraya," the first Agera RS models to be delivered in the U.S. and Europe, respectively, in August. Now, Koenigsegg has taken the wraps off the RSR, a limited-edition variant built exclusively for the Japanese market. Essentially a bespoke RS loaded with options, the RSR is limited to only three examples, a smaller fraction of the RS’ already scarce production run of just 25 units.

There is no official information as to who commissioned these models and if more RSR supercars will be sold in other markets, but given that the Agera RS is already sold out, it’s very unlikely to see more of them on the road.

What makes the Koenigsegg Agera RSR special

Visually, the RSR appears to be identical to the RS, but the supercar is equipped with a number of features that are usually available only as options on the standard model. The first thing that catches the eye is the rear wing, which features two additional elements that connect it to the engine hood, improving the car’s aerodynamics. The RSR is also equipped with a removable top, also an option on the RS, which includes a new roof scoop that looks similar to the one seen on the One:1.

As it is almost always the case with Koenigsegg models, each of the three RSRs comes with a bespoke paint jobs. Arguably the most spectacular of them is chassis No. 122, which is finished in a turquoise-like blue with carbon-fiber and yellow accents. The center stripe, side skirts, rear bumper, and rear wing show bare carbon-fiber, while yellow highlights the center carbon stripe, front bumper intakes, side intakes, and side skirt winglets. The second model is finished in black and features similar carbon-fiber elements and dark-red accents for a more subdued appearance. The third model, which has yet to be unveiled as of September 2016, is said to feature white paint.

There’s no word as to what’s new on the inside, but each car should feature the same interior as the Agera RS, but with minor tweaks for enhanced exclusivity. This usually includes accents that mirror the exterior, contrast stitching in bright colors, and special badges and logos.

Under the hood, the RSR is essentially an RS, making use of the already familiar 5.0-liter V-8. The twin-turbocharged unit cranks out a whopping 1,160 horsepower and 945 pound-feet of torque, giving the Agera some amazing performance specs. For instance, charging from 0 to 60 mph takes only 2.9 seconds, while the sprints from 0 to 186 and 250 mph are achieved in 14 and 20 seconds, respectively. Top speed is estimated at 275 mph, which makes the RS and RSR the second fastest Koenigsegg after the One:1, which, according to the Swedish, can hit 280 mph.

Obviously there’s no pricing information for the RSR, but given the very limited run and the fact that the Agera RS retails from around $1.7 million, each RSR likely costs in excess of $2 million.
