The Koenigsegg Agera R is one of the world's fastest supercars ever produced.
The Agera R made its debut at the March 2011 Geneva Motor Show—with a Speed Racer livery theme and special Michelin tires. It can accelerate from 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in 2.8 seconds and reach a theoretical top speed of 439 km/h (273 mph). The Agera R has a drag coefficient of Cd=0.37, or Cd=0.33 at high speed due to its adaptive rear wing, while producing 300 kg (660 lb) of downforce at 250 km/h (155 mph). This adaptive rear wing system is lighter than conventional hydraulic/electrical adaptive systems and has the unique ability to compensate for head/tailwind due to its spring-loaded design. Furthermore, the pylons holding the wing play not only a role in the Agera R's aerodynamic performance but also assist in extracting hot air from the engine bay.
On 2 September 2011, during test sessions in Ängelholm, the Agera R broke six world land speed records for a production car, including 0–300 km/h (0–186 mph) in 14.53 seconds, and 0–300–0 km/h in only 21.19 seconds. The braking performance required to maintain this record is enabled in part by the Agera's stability, demonstrated by Koenigsegg's test driver and drivetrain technician Robert Serwanski, who was recorded by passenger Rob Ferretti (founder of the group "Super Speeders") braking from 300 km/h to 0 without holding the steering wheel.
The Koenigsegg Agera R has a power to weight ratio of 1.24 kg (2.73 lb) per horsepower.
Even without tuning the Agera R is really good at grinding, though it does not have the best acceleration.
The Agera R has one of the highest top speeds currently in the game. On the specification panel, the bar for max speed is completely full.
Braking is amazing but as with all supercars, going fast and braking will result in a flat spin. Buying racing slicks will help with grip and acceleration.
This car has to have one of the worst handlings in the game, so far as to say it can be described as a brick with a ton of acceleration and speed, if you are looking for a good handling car, stay away from this.
The max speed has a decent boost when upgraded, allowing you a decent quarter mile time. Another good thing is it can reach 365 mph (with Ludacris engine) without using nitro.
The acceleration gets a lot better, considering that before upgrading, the Agera R has okay - low acceleration. But overall compared to other cars of that price range the Agera R lacks good acceleration
The braking has no difference, as it only increases it by 0.1.
Upgrading this car doesn't help much with the handling.
- The Agera R was featured prominently in the Need for Speed franchise, prominently in Criterion Games' Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012), Ghost Games' Need for Speed Rivals (2013), and the 2014 film Need for Speed. It is also featured in 2013 mobile video game Real Racing 3. And some would say it looks like a Tron car.
- The in-game description is a reference to Koenigsegg. The actual pronunciation is ko-nig-seg (køːnɪɡsɛɡ).
- The car model in the game is actually an Agera, not an Agera R since it’s missing the front canards and the correct rear spoiler. Sim mentioned fixing this, but nothing has been done yet.
