The new Agera RS pushes the boundaries and takes the Agera to all new levels of performance.
The new Koenigsegg Agera RS has its focus set firmly on the track but is still perfect for regular use on the road. It uses advanced technology developed during our exclusive Koenigsegg One:1 program, while maintaining all the functionality of previous S and R models. Such practicalities include a usable luggage compartment and a detachable hardtop that can be stowed internally for top-down motoring at any time.
Agera RS enhancements include: advanced lightweight sound insulation, an all-new front splitter optimized for the track, front winglets, side skirts, advanced dynamic underbody flap system and a dynamically active rear spoiler for added down force (now up to 450 kg at 250 km/h). The RS also features improved side air outlets behind the front wheels, increased power and a raised rpm limit.
Even with all this added functionality and equipment, we have still managed to lower the curb weight compared to the Agera S and R models, thanks to the use of advanced composites and layup techniques developed during the One:1 program.
On top of the standard equipment, the Agera RS also offers the option to choose the Koenigsegg active and self-levelling chassis package, 3G connected Pre-Active chassis setups, alternative aero packages, active sound cancellation and much more.
The engine – as with the previous Agera S – has been optimized for regular pump gas and now puts out an incredible 1160 bhp on regular petrol. That’s an astonishing 232 bhp per liter with perfect reliability.
In certain markets, the Agera RS can also be configured to run on E85 for even higher power levels, while the engine management system offers the ability to adjust on-the-fly to any fuel mix at any given time.
The Agera RS is the ultimate in road and track versatility. It offers the most extreme performance available today and yet is fully road legal, complying with safety standards and other necessary homologation requirements worldwide.
The RS will be handcrafted in only 25 examples, with 10 pre-sold prior to the first showing.

Koenigsegg Agera RSN Breaks VMax200 Top Speed Record
The most recent Koenigsegg Agera RS to be delivered, badged as Agera RSN, took to the track in the United Kingdom and emerged with a new VMax200 top speed record.
VMax200 is a top speed event held several times per year at airfields around the UK. This edition of VMax was held on a 2.1km track at Kendew Barracks, east of Leicester.
Early runs saw the car’s owner, Neil Miller, at the helm, including one run up to 234mph with his son riding shotgun. An hour later, Koenigsegg factory driver Niklas Lilja took the wheel for the final runs of the day, topping out at 242 mph – a new VMax200 record.
Koenigsegg factory driver, Niklas Lilja:
“The car was strong all day. We had to do a little fine tuning on the active rear wing as we progressed through the day so we probably left a few mph on the table for next time. Overall, though, it was a very satisfying event, and a good way to back up the experience we had setting five new world records in Nevada last year.”
The previous VMax200 record of 240 mph was set in 2016 by the Koenigsegg One:1 with LMP1 racer Oliver Webb behind the wheel.
Koenigsegg UK dealer, Tommy Wareham from Supervettura:
“The car was unbelievably fast and we have a very happy owner here today. The One:1 that set a record in 2016 was software-limited to 240, which Oli hit quite early in the run. It’d be an interesting exercise to remove the limiter one day and see these two cars go head-to-head. Either way, it’s a wonderful thing that it took a Koenigsegg to break the record held by another Koenigsegg!
It should also be noted that there was a group of highly modified vehicles here today with incredible horsepower figures. To finish top of the table in production form against such dedicated, high-achieving privateers is a credit to the company.”
