Another insane car from the Swedish supercar maker is pumped out of the Agera body in the form of the Koenigsegg Agera XS and with over 1300-hp and a zesty orange color, it’s a bullet on wheels.
Set to be revealed alongside the Mercedes-Maybach 6 Coupe and the Cadillac flagship concept at the Monterey Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance – The new Swedish Megacar is painted in a bright orange paint called the “Karosserie Orange” with a beautiful diamond-dust metallic finish. To reduce the flashy orange effect, Koenigsegg left the middle section in clear carbon.
Interestingly enough, the “XS” New Koenigsegg Agera XS doesn’t stand for extra small because this particular model has the biggest carbon fiber wing ever put in a Koenigsegg. The car was made for an owner who lives in America and he requested some extra bits from Christian Van Koenigsegg and the Swede obliged.
The engine is the all too-familiar 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 producing over 1300-bhp and mated to a durable seven-speed paddle shift gearbox that can take the punishment of catapulting the car from 0-186 mph in 14 seconds then spiraling all the way to 250 mph six seconds later. Madness. The 0-62mph time is irrelevant at this point if you’re contemplating with your self.
Cornering is just as impressive with a 1.8g of cornering force it’s almost as impressive as the monstrous One:1 that has a 2.0g rating. The only difference between the two is the focus on comfort the Agera XS gets; with better rear visibility, a detachable hardtop and adjustable carbon seats.
The Koenigsegg Agera XS is also lighter than the Agera R weighing in at 1,394kg with all fluids – it’s also very close to the One:1 weight to power ratio. New additions include front winglets, optimized front track splitter, dynamic underbody flaps, new side skirts and an Active aero rear spoiler that produces 450kg of downfroce at 155-mph.
