Koenigsegg builds a few of the most insane manufacturing automobiles on earth, and the one-of-one Agera XS is one among its most interesting.
Built 4 years in the past for a rich collector in Miami who, amongst different exotics, additionally owns a Lamborghini Veneno, the Agera XS is predicated on the Agera RS however contains a host of customized touches that differentiate it from all of its counterparts. Jonny Liberman just lately had the chance to check out the XS on the road, and whereas we solely have a 4-minute assessment to get pleasure from, it’s nonetheless value watching.
Immediately making the Agera XS stand out from all different Koenigseggs is the outside end. Adorning the bodywork is a vivid shade of orange that’s offset by a number of gloss and matte carbon fiber elements, such because the roof, roof scoop, and the towering rear wing. Speaking of the wing, it’s distinct from all different Koenigsegg variants and additional provides to the car’s wild appears.
Then there may be the engine. While most Agera RS fashions come outfitted with a 5.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 rated at 1,160 hp, the XS has been geared up with the One:1 energy improve, which implies it pumps out 1,341 hp at 7,500 rpm and 1,010 lb-ft (1,370 Nm) of torque at 6,000 rpm.
