With so many new hypercars lurking around the Goodwood Festival of Speed, one could be forgiven for overlooking the Koenigsegg Agera.
It’d be a shame, though, especially as the Swedish hypercar that was present was no other than the Final Edition ‘Thor’.
Based on the record-setting Agera RS, this angry beast features all available options, the 1MW (1341 HP) engine upgrade for the twin-turbo 5.0-liter V8 and a series of bespoke aerodynamic solutions.
Koenigsegg factory driver Niklas Lilja, the man who clocked 284mph (458 km/h) in an Agera RS, was sitting behind the wheel of Thor for all of its four runs over two days up the Goodwood hillclimb. The lucky owner of the car joined Niklas for the second run, and the result was captured with an in-car camera.
Thor’s fastest run was 51.5 seconds, but the company’s test driver reckons that the car was capable of posting a time closer to 50 seconds if he improved his driving. It was, after all, his first visit at the Festival of Speed.
We already knew that the Agera RS is the fastest car according to Guinness World Records, but to witness the passenger being thrown around like a rag doll during gear shifting, braking and cornering really shows that this hypercar right here is far away from being a one-trick pony.
