Another Koenigsegg Agera RS is Heading to the US

Called the Koenigsegg Agera RS1, it’s the latest addition to Koenigsegg Automotive’s growing U.S.-based family.

The Koenigsegg Agera RS received its RS1 name from its owner, who along with his son, has been intensively involved in the entire specification and build process, the Swedish automaker said in a blog post. The exterior features an Arctic White finish, further highlighted by a specially selected shade of blue that can be seen on the front winglets, side skirts, diffuser and rear wing.

The blue shade continues inside the cabin, with striking blue Alcantara further contrasted by polished carbon fiber and black anodized aluminum.
