The Agera is a mid-engine hypercar that was produced between 2011 and 2017, succeeding the Koenigsegg CCX. Over the years, the Agera spawned many higher-performance variations, including the 1124 hp (838 kW) Agera R in 2013, the biofuel-powered Agera S in 2014, the One:1 in 2014, and the Agera RS in 2015, which is famous for breaking multiple world records, most notably the production car top speed world record with 277.87 mph (447.19 km/h) in November 2017.
The Bugatti Veyron may be (slightly) faster, but the Agera is among the most interesting of the current breed of hypercar. It certainly has the requisite manic power numbers, courtesy of a 940 horsepower, twin-turbo, 5-liter V8. With a top speed of greater than 260 mph and a sub-three-second 0-60 mph time, no one can deny its performance. But Christian von Koenigsegg’s genius is in making his cars boldly distinctive, and while the CCX and its derivatives are definitely that, the Agera is a further evolution of the theme. From every angle the new composite body (draped over a variant of the CCX’s incredibly stiff chassis) is fascinating, and it also provides improved downforce. For example, those halo-shaped taillights surround heat-extracting vents to help cool the engine. And the wheels are specially designed as vortex generators, cooling the brakes and increasing downforce. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Koenigsegg without some special details, like the wraparound windshield, distinctive cockpit, and the ghost on the engine cover. Ghost? Yes, it’s a tribute to a Swedish air force squadron that previously occupied Koenigsegg’s Ängelholm facility and used the ghost as its emblem.

The Agera is a rear-wheel drive, mid-engined coupe outfitted with a 5.0L (5,032 cc) twin-turbocharged V8 engine with 946 hp (705 kW) at 6,900 rpm and 811 ft·lb (1100 N·m) of torque at 4,000 rpm, although the Agera's power output varies as either 940 hp (701 kW) or 946 hp (705 kW) throughout the Forza franchise. The engine weighs only 197 lb (89 kg) due to the use of a carbon fiber inlet manifold and aluminum construction.
The Agera's transmission is a specially developed seven-speed dual-clutch automatic with paddle shifters located behind the steering wheel and is unique in that it is the first transmission to have only one input shaft. The second clutch slows down the input shaft during up shifts in order to reduce the time it takes to synchronize the next gear, resulting in faster shift times.
The Agera's body is made from carbon fiber and kevlar with lightweight reinforcements. Its hardtop roof can be stored under the front hood lid. The Agera also comes with forged aluminum wheels with center locking nuts, measuring 19 inches on the front and 20 inches on the back and wrapped in a set of Michelin Super Sport tires that can be used with speeds of up to 261 mph (420 km/h). Other design trademarks include the trademark Koenigsegg doors, a new traction control system, and LED lighting.
The Agera is capable of 0 - 60 mph (97 km/h) in 2.88 seconds, 0 - 100 mph (161 km/h) in 5.56 seconds, and a top speed of 262 mph (421 km/h), which is reduced to 260 mph (419 km/h) in the Motorsport games.
