The successor to the world-beating Koenigsegg Agera will allegedly premiere this March at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
The Swedish car manufacturer has made no secret of the fact that an Agera replacement has been in the works and last year, released a single teaser image of the vehicle.
Since then, it was rumored that the hypercar would be dubbed ‘Ragnarok’ but that may no longer be the case.
According to Swedish publication Dagens Industri, the vehicle’s name remains a mystery, and production will be capped at 125 units worldwide. The car has yet to be shown to the public, but it’s claimed that no less than 72 of these vehicles have already been sold.
Electric hypercars better watch out.
Powering the Agera’s successor will apparently be a modified version of the twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V8 we’re familiar with. Upgrades should lift power to 1,440 hp, roughly 80 hp more than any Agera RS model equipped with the One:1 power upgrade.
As production and deliveries of the hybrid Koenigsegg Regera are ongoing, the company will have two models in its range when the Agera’s successor goes on sale. Having two models is going to allow the marque to create very different products and it’s believed the new hypercar could be even more track-focused than the Agera. The Regera is positioned as a hyper-GT.
It is also possible that Koenigsegg may try and set a new production car top speed record by exceeding the two-way average of 277.9 mph set by an Agera RS.
If the vehicle does premiere in Geneva, we expect to see a plethora of teaser images in the coming months.
