Thanks to photos and information from GTSpirit, we’re able to bring you the very latest supercar from Koenigsegg – the Agera. Looking mostly similar to the CCX, the Agera appears to be some sort of special edition version of the Swedish supercar.

So what’s so special about it? We’re glad you asked.

For starters, the 4.7-liter twin-supercharged V8 has been boosted further to create an incredible 910-hp and 811 ft-lbs of torque. When combined with an ultra-low curb weight of just 2,832 lbs and using a sequential gearbox the Agera can hit 62 mph in just 3.1 seconds and blast on to a top speed of 242 mph.

Style-wise, the Agera does get slightly modified front and rear bumpers and, like every other car these days, the Agera gets some LED lights. The car’s carbon-Kevlar body is specially designed to produce downforce at speed, with 661 lbs of downward force being generated at 155 mph.

According to GTSpirit, just 16-20 Agera models will be built each year, starting later this year.

AutoGuide will bring you plenty of new photos of the Agera and of the rest of the cars at the Geneva Auto Show with live coverage starting next Monda, March, 1st.
