White Noise! The Koenigsegg Agera R!

Yes, you read that right. The ‘R’ bit, that is. As if the original mad Swedish supercar – the Agera – wasn’t already bonkers enough. Koenigsegg is set to unveil the Agera R at Geneva shortly and boy, does this Storm Trooper craft (of sorts) impress or what! Tank it up with E85 biofuel and the V8 will happily make 1115 horsepower hammering down power to the tarmac via a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox. But what do we see here? Is that a roof box on top there? On a car which beyond 420 kph? Oh yes, it’s quite insane but true. The owner here is a skier and wanted to stow away his ski-gear in that carbon fibre roof box. Opinions remain divided but since he pays the hefty amount of dosh, we’re no one to comment on his choice, are we now? There was never a more fun way of getting to the ski resort. That’s not all. The rims are Vortex Generating Rims (VGR) whose spokes act like vanes to guide air, maximizing down force in the process. Wrapping those rims are Michelins exclusive to the Agera, rated for 420 kph, becoming the fastest rated tyres in the world in the process. The ultimate supercar to take on a ski holiday across the Alps? Just might be, but leave the kids at the grandmother’s place, will you?
