Time to take Action

Agera means “to take action” in Swedish. It is also short for the ancient Greek word Ageratos which means “ageless”. These are both suitable meanings for this incredible and beautiful machine.
The CCX and CCXR were difficult cars to follow as their performance and functionality still is very competitive. Still, there is always room for change and improvement.
So Koenigsegg came up with a new interior, featuring the now famous ghost lights, where all interior symbols are created with laser etched “nano like” invisible holes through the aluminum panels and buttons.
Furthermore, the Agera featured a unique 7 speed transmission that Koenigsegg developed an E-diff and wet clutch functionality for, that truly enhanced performance and handling.
The Agera was the first model to feature the Koenigsegg developed VGR wheels. They are real air turbines, increasing the downforce of the car by measurable amounts and improving brake cooling. All four wheels are individual so that turbine blades always face the correct direction for extraction. Given that the offset and width is different front to rear, all four wheels have their own unique design. The VGR wheels are forged and then fully machined to the final shape. All excess material is removed during the forging and machining process, thus minimizing weight whilst displaying outstanding levels of stiffness.
The CCX and CCXR both had supercharged engines, which at the time was the superior solution. However, turbo technology had come a long way and the downsides of turbo lag was starting to become almost nonexistent, if engineered properly. The problem with turbo engines, high power and emission control was that the catalytic converters caused a lot of back pressure at high power level. These back pressures were elevated through the turbo and into the exhaust ports of the engine, thereby causing what is called hot EGR. Hot EGR is a source for detonation knocking. To eleviate this problem, Christian came up with an ingenious solution by placing the pre cat behind the waste gate instead of the turbo, thereby reducing the back pressure with a factor of 3. This simple solution gave 300 hp extra power and was a worthy successor of the Rocket cat invented and developed by Christian almost 10 years earlier. It also meant that the Agera could deliver torque power and response to match much larger engines at a fraction of their weight, making it extremely competitive.
The Agera Became 2010 Top Gear Hypercar of the Year.
