The Agera RS1 is here and it is outrageous


Read this out loud: "I'd really like a Koenigsegg."

Got it? Cool. That's roughly how long it takes the new Agera RS1 to reach 0-60, 2.8 seconds to be exact.

This version of the RS, the construction of which was carefully monitored by the owner and his son, sports an insane 5.0 liter V8, which was hand-built in Sweden. If that wasn't over-the-top enough for you, the RS1 creates 1,360HP and 1,011 lb-ft of torque. Koenigsegg has finally succeeded in building something that looks like it'd be more at home at Edwards Air Force Base than on the road.

The RS1 only weighs a hair over 3,000 pounds and drives power to the wheels through a 7-speed automatic transmission. That incredible power-to-weight ratio means that the RS1 can reach 186 mph in just over 12 seconds.


This thing has to be hell to drive in the city though, sitting at a stoplight would just feel wrong.
