Swedish supercar maker Koenigsegg has launched its latest version of the CCX at the Geneva Auto Show to celebrate the brand’s 15 years and the vehicle’s timeless design. Koenigsegg refers to it not as a special edition, however, but a a whole new mode, called the Agera. The name “Agera” has two meanings, the first being from the Swedish verb “to act,” while the second is derived from the Greek “Ageratos, which means “ageless.” Both origins seem incredibly appropriate.

Helping the Agera to act is a more powerful version of the 4.7-liter twin-supercharged V8 which now makes 910-hp and 811 ft-lbs of torque. Koenigsegg claims a 0-62 mph time of just 3.1 seconds and a top speed of over 245 mph.

Other highlights include the trademark Koenigsegg doors, a new traction control system, LED lighting, blue hood stripes that continue on through the cockpit of the car and a custom interior with a new “Ghost light” lighting system, where blue light emanates from invisible light tubes from between the billet interior.

The Agera will join the CCX and CCXR in Koenigsegg’s lineup. It is currently undergoing final testing and will begin production this summer.
