  • Agera RSR – Limited Edition of 3 cars to be delivered to Japanese Koenigsegg enthusiasts.
  • Fully customized cars based on the 1160hp Koenigsegg Agera RS.
  • Exclusive aerodynamic design.

Koenigsegg Automotive AB is pleased to announce the debut of the Agera RSR, an exclusive series comprising 3 examples for Koenigsegg owners in the Japanese market. The Agera RSR was launched at an event held by Koenigsegg Japan in Tokyo on September 5, with Christian and Halldora von Koenigsegg in attendance.

The three Agera RSR vehicles are based on the Koenigsegg RS and form a distinct part of the 25-car Agera RS series.

Specific input from clients was crucial to the design and specification of the Agera RSR, which were amongst the first Agera RS cars ordered and therefore pioneered aerodynamic solutions that were subsequently made available to other customized Agera RS’s. All three feature Koenigsegg’s customary bespoke exterior and interior designs, which were completed in close consultation with clients.

Koenigsegg Agera RSR

The Agera RSR models were the first of the Agera RS series to specify a dynamic rear spoiler modified from a traditional post-mounted item to become a top-mounted spoiler similar to the Koenigsegg One:1. Such a solution provides greater downforce and improved handling while retaining the distinct Agera RS rear spoiler design.

The Agera RSR also features an air intake scoop similar to that of the Koenigsegg One:1 but of a distinctive, shortened design, to allow for the roof to be stored in the car. The scoop increases the engine’s breathing at higher speeds, which results in more power to the wheels when going at speed.

Christian von Koenigsegg, the CEO and founder of Koenigsegg Automotive AB:

“Japan has been an important market for Koenigsegg since the earliest days of the company. It brought us great pleasure to work with our Japanese clients to bring the Agera RSR to life. The cars they have designed add a new dimension to the already exclusive Agera RS series.”

All three Agera RSR models are soon to be delivered to enthusiast Koenigsegg owners in Japan.

    Any reason they didn’t get the steering wheel on the right like the regular cars?

      Japan is a RHD country but allows LHD cars and some owners of cars like ours prefer to own LHD. We build the car to the customer’s specification and LHD is what they asked for.

      Likely because LHD makes the cars more valuable

    Interesting. We’ve already seen some right-hand-drive Ageras (at least one), curious why these Japanese-market ones are left-hand-drive? Track-only?

    Sooo… the only thing you guys have to say, after seeing these stunning pieces of art, is to ask about the left hand drive?

    I love the interior design, it’s very classy. And the swedish summer sky blue is beautiful as well. Gaah, I wish I was filthy rich!

    1160 hp – this is real and how to measure?

    Hi Steve,

    thank your for explaining that point. Glad the event was a success.

    The cars are impeccably detailed and it’s nice to see the efforts for continual improvement.

    One detail I might consider changing if I was an owner is the pointed tip on the lower side of the rear wing end plate. While it might look quite captivating, I think over time it might seem a little too much.

    The seats and interior are very nice. But please don’t go as far as Pagani, because the purity of their original Zonda (silver or monochromatic exterior with gold anodyzing or natural titanium) was somewhat over-done for the Huayra which has added more and more customisation to the point where the cars no longer reflect the pleasure of driving but the pleasure of spec’ing a lot of shiny parts.

    All the best for the next shows and events worldwide. Keep up the good work

    Hey Mr. Wade!

    Wow! The new Agera RSR is really impressive! I can realiy appreciate the owner for choosing the first set of Agera RSs ever to be in Japan! And those colours! They fit the sort of atmosphere around Japan perfectly and emulate the car culture in Japan.

    I can just about imagine the Black and Red RSR cruising along the streets, camoflauging itself into the midnight darkness…..or even surprising some bewildered street racers with a sudden burst of throttle! 😀

    You guys at Koenigsegg are doing a great job as usual Mr. Wade, with adding improvements like being able to have the scoop AND the ability to stow it away in the front. One thing I am not sure about though, is the license plate on the front of the car, Mr. Wade. Won’t that increase drag and ruin the RSRs looks? And by the way, where is the third Agera RSR? It doesn’t seem to be pictured……

    Rock the Japanese streets,
    Nimalan S. R.
