THE KOENIGSEGG AGERA RS IS NO LONGER IN PRODUCTION

The Koenigsegg Agera RS is officially out of production, with the final example of the Swedish supercar having rolled off the assembly line this week. 

The final Agera RS produced is actually a replacement car for the Agera RS ‘Gryphon’, which was totaled during a shakedown test in wet conditions at a test track in Sweden (pictured below). It was initially thought the Gryphon could be repaired and perhaps even improved following the wreck, but appears Koenigsegg opted to simply build the customer a new vehicle.

While the Agera RS is out of production, there are still two more non-RS Ageras that are being built.

“With the RS series complete, the Agera line has two more cars to be built and delivered – two Final Edition vehicles,” Koenigsegg said in a statement. “The Final Edition series debuted at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show with the appearance of the One of One (below). The two super-bespoke Final Editions nearing the end of production right now will complete that series of three vehicles – and the Agera line of vehicles as a whole.”

Koenigsegg expressed a certain degree of sadness about the end of Agera RS production, saying the car has been “a fundamental part of all our lives for the last three years.” The Agera RS holds five world speed records, including the coveted title of Worlds Fastest Production Car – which was awarded to the Swedish brand after an Agera RS did 277.87 mph on a desert road in Nevada.

All told, 25 examples of the Agera RS were built. The company is now turning its focus to the Regera and making customer deliveries of the high horsepower hybrid, which will accelerate from 0-186 mph in just 1.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 249 mph.
