See this guy, in the orange and black? His name is Kris Singh. And he’s sitting behind the wheel of his brand new Koenigsegg Agera RS.
Agera XS, we should say, because that’s how he had Koenigsegg badge his hypercar.
It’s the first of its kind certified for use on American roads, fitted with an oversized rear wing to keep those 1,160 horses from taking flight. But as you might have guessed, the Agera isn’t the only super-rare seven-figure exotic in his collection.
Also in the garage of the Florida-based investment banker is the one-off Pagani Huayra “La Monza Lisa” edition and a Lamborghini Aventador 50th Anniversary Roadster in a special shade of neon green, created just for him, called Verde Singh.
Koenigsegg flew the Agera XS, along with the Regera, straight from its base in Ängelholm, Sweden out to Monterey, California. There Singh took delivery of his latest toy and several other owners joined in on the action to make the most impressive assembly of Koenigseggs since a baker’s dozen gathered in Scandinavia for the first owners’ tour.
*Update: While Koenigsegg said on its blog that the XS has the same (1,160hp) engine as the Agera RS, in an Instagram posting, the car’s owner, Kris Singh, claims it comes with “the upgraded power of the One:1 engine specification, which is advertised at 1341 HP.”
Answers to some of your questions below!! To clear up some of the confusion: – The Koenigsegg Agera XS is a Koenigsegg Agera RS with a new aerodynamic package that includes a top mounted rear wing that was designed for this car at my request. It is the largest wing ever on a Koenigsegg. ___________________________________________________________ – Like the One:1 and Agera RS, there is active aerodynamics under the car which have been customized to work with the larger wing, new dive planes, etc. _____________________________________________________________ – The Koenigsegg Agera XS has the upgraded power of the One:1 engine specification, which is advertised at 1341 HP. _____________________________________________________________ – Many people are asking how the Agera XS would compare to the One:1? The One:1 is still the performance King from Koenigsegg (not that I am skilled enough to take either to their limits much less exploit the differences). The One:1 is lighter and makes more downforce. 💪1️⃣:1️⃣ _____________________________________________________________ – I tried to make this car similar to the One:1 in many respects while retaining the added comfort, insulation, ability to store the removable roof in the front trunk, and other features of the Agera RS that make it more suited for comfort / daily driving / long trips than the more performance focused One:1. _____________________________________________________________ – I chose the name "Agera XS" because between the crazy wing, crazy power, crazy paint, and everything else that went into this car, I felt XS would a fitting name (as in Excess / Excessive). Honestly, it's a fitting name for all Koenigsegg's – They are all over the top! 👍😂👍 I hope that cleared up some of the confusion. ____________________________________________________________ I love this rendering that @lisjohanson sent me of my Koenigsegg Agera XS when she got to San Francisco!! 🛡🏎💨🙏 Tack Lisa!!
