    Power is power and we all love power but electric or battery combined engines can't have that magical sound befitting a powerful brute.
    The side profile looks pretty good.

    In the end I say bring back the Agera.
    I agree about the wheels, hollow carbon wheels is pretty damn cool but the design is pretty ugly imo.

    They will comtinue to build the Agera along side this. The RS looks like it will be a BEAST!

    Not feeling the wheels. They look like biohazard warning symbols.

    At least CvK is a cool guy.

    It's harder to survive success than failure

    Flop on the name and wheel choice (minor); otherwise, I like it. Always like Koenigsegg's efforts because they're truly focused on engineering products that often don't exist in a refined manner. CVK had family money, in addition to funds from a trading company he ran, but claims he worked for years without salary and now for very little. Either way, it's privately-held, so no concrete way of knowing. More power to them for pushing the envelope.

    I thought he started Koenigsegg because he was pissed at Ferrari for not selling him a F50 or Enzo... just what I had herd.

    I think the name is really clever (it means "to reign" in Swedish) but maybe only us Swedes will like it. Even so, it's far from the worst supercar name out there imo. (Huayra, LaFerrari, Huracan, AMG GT to name a few)

    I've not heard that story, all I know is that he dreamt of building his own supercar since he was a kid. Ferrucio Lamborghini started to build cars because he was pissed at Ferrari though.

    He sure loves the "coyote" motor lol...The 5.Bro guys always claim fame to the Agera R because of its displacement. At the end of the say I was hoping for a new powerplant. Like when the P1 got the same motor ( obviously not exactly the same but you get the idea) that is in their "base model" 570S and also used in the 12C oh yea AND the 650S as well lol... I would've liked to seen then redo the CCX-R motor as I loved that 4.7L twin SC setup. maybe up the displacement to 5.2L and throw on twin TVS units like the one the 13/14 GT500 uses..IDK it is late and I am on pills for my wrist which I recently had surgery on and thinking out loud lol


    End Rant, As you were
