Koenigsegg Agera Successor May Be Dubbed Ragnarok, Come With 1440 HP

The successor to the mighty Koenigsegg Agera will apparently draw its name by the Norse mythology and could deliver as much as 1440 hp.

The Supercar Blog claims to have been informed from a source close to the Swedish manufacturer that the new hypercar shall be named Ragnarok, which is supposed to be the battle at the end of the world, the death of the Norse gods and the fall of Asgard. Not exactly what you’ve seen in the Marvell Studios movie, as the mythology is much darker, but still a fitting name for Koenigsegg’s new beast.

Beyond the vehicle’s potential name, it is claimed that the Swedish hypercar will pump out 1440 hp, a small bump from the 1360 hp delivered by the Agera RS when optioned with the One:1 power upgrade.

Despite the current crop of hypercars going hybrid or all-electric, the Koenigsegg Ragnarok will make all of its grunt from a twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V8 that’s basically a revised version of the Agera RS’s powertrain.

Koenisegg offered the world a glimpse of the Ragnarok at the opening of a dealership in Australia. The teaser showed that the car will have a large fixed rear wing, a familiar-shaped cockpit, and an extremely large rear diffuser.

Like the Agera RS, the Ragnarok will be track-focused and probably the fastest vehicle to ever wear the Koenigsegg badge. The car will be sold alongside the Regera, which is positioned as more of a hyper-GT.

The Ragnarok is expected to be a limited series and come outfitted with the automaker’s finest carbon fiber work – and almost certainly cost more than $2 million.
