Koenigsegg Teases Agera’s Successor At Dealership Opening Down Under

Koenigsegg only builds a handful of its high-value hypercars each year, and sells them through a small network of dealers around the world. So the opening of a new showroom might be news in and of itself. But what’s caught our attention here is not the opening of the dealership, but what the manufacturer showed there.

At the opening of the new franchise at Lorbek Luxury Cars in Melbourne, Australia, this week, Koenigsegg showed guests this teaser sketch for its next exotic hypercar.

Billed as the replacement for the Agera RS, the new model is slated to be unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show next March. With the Agera RS and Regera hybrid both completely sold out, this as-yet unseen new model is the only one that Koenigsegg currently has available for order. And we don’t know much about it yet.

From the bare outline, the bodywork (at least from behind) looks completely different to those of the Agera or Regera – curvier than the former, and more aggressive than the latter, especially around those rear fenders. That giant rear wing looks different too, but the stance and double-bubble cockpit look distinctly Koenigsegg.

Given the company’s track record, the new model will likely be faster and more powerful than anything Christian von Koenigsegg and company have made to date – and likely more expensive, too. It will also likely carry a new name to differentiate it from the Agera, but the big question on our minds is whether it’ll be a hybrid or a completely internal-combustion affair. Considering that it’s being billed as the successor to the Agera RS (and not to the Regera), we’d bank on the latter. But we’ll have to wait to find out more of the parameters as the reveal (about nine months from now) approaches.
