Thor’s hammer

The Agera R was produced between 2011 and 2014, with a total production number of 18 cars.
The Agera R had all the features and functionality of the Agera, but also featured new and unique solutions to enhance performance and visual appearance even further.
Examples of these enhancements included: visible carbon on the front bonnet and bumper, new front side winglets, new Aero exhaust, increased power and a raised RPM limit.
Koenigsegg was the first Hypercar manufacturer to take steps toward green technology with the release of the biofuel CCXR in 2007. The Agera R, based on the highly competitive Agera, follows in the footsteps of the CCXR as it also runs on E85 biofuel.
Among the many differences to the standard Agera, the Agera R has an upgraded fuel and engine management system with enough flow capacity to generate 1140hp and 1200Nm of torque on E85 and E100 biofuel. As there is less energy content per given volume in these biofuels compared to normal petrol, the fuel system has to manage a flow that is similar to a 2000hp petrol engine, which means that the Agera R’s return-less fuel system has the highest capacity of any car presently in production.
As the Agera R is a flex fuel car, it can also be run on normal petrol. As 95 octane fuel has less octane than ethanol E85, the power is reduced to 960hp with 1100Nm of torque due to the boost pressure and ignition timing being altered to match the fuel characteristics.
In order to give the Agera R maximum flexibility when it comes to power delivery, Koenigsegg has implemented the latest technology when it comes to turbo materials and design. This reduces the inertia of the turbine wheel and axle and therefore gives improved response.
The Agera R was also the first car where Koenigsegg started to develop their own ceramic piston brake system.
