    Default Koenigsegg Agera/ Agera R to hit Top Gear?

    Hey guys,

    I have been just doing some research, and as a Top Gear fan, last time I remember a Koenigsegg appearing on Top Gear was the CCX. I mean, the magazine has featured test drives of the Agera & the Agera R in August 2010 and April 2011 respectively, but I am not informed of any plans to feature them on the TV show.

    Do you happen to know if Top Gear have already approached Koenigsegg to test drive the Agera/Agera R?
    I've looked at the teasers for the Season 18, but neither Koenigsegg's seem to be in it.
    Does anybody know something that I don't?

    Thanks for the feedbacks in advance.
    Regards,
    Nick

    None of these cars are hypercar category really...Anyway, IMO, apart from the M5 and the C63 Black Edition, the other cars do not even stir any emotions for me...Why do I have the feeling that Top Gear are ignoring the Agera range? Maybe it's just me though.

    I guess it's because they don't liked the CCX which was later outfitted with the TopGear wing because it spun out too easy.

    Matt Farah was banned from the Porsche test fleet because he didn't liked the color of one Porsche on the NY Auto Show.

    So maybe Top Gear is banned from Koenigsegg?!
    Not putting miles on your (super)car is like having the hottest girlfriend, but not banging her very often because you want her to be tighter for her next boyfriend.

    ^Well, not so sure about Koenigsegg banning Top Gear from testing their cars.

    Last year, CvK had an interview where he mentioned that he would love to have another go with the Agera or the Agera R.
