2013 Koenigsegg Agera R Rich in Carbon Fiber: 2012 Geneva Auto Show

Swedish supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg makes really cool cars, there isn’t any arguing about it. The company uses so much carbon fiber in its cars that even the wheels, which are hollow, are made of the stuff on the higher-end Agera R model.

Both the Agera and Agera R got a refresh and debuted Tuesday at the 2012 Geneva Auto Show. These cars have a simply scary power-to-weight ratio, 2.63:1 pounds to horsepower. Running on E85, the car makes 1140 hp and has a top speed of 273 mph.

Cars like this impress on paper, but few people actually experience the thrills such machines can provide. Thankfully, Koenigsegg’s cars are a true joy to behold. Sure, spending time gawking is no substitute for driving, but it’s still a sight to remember.

We spent a little time snapping detailed photos so you could do the same vicariously through us.
