Two special Swedes are making an appearance at Monterey Car Week: the Koenigsegg Agera XS and Regera.
For those who follow the automotive world, you’re probably already well-versed in the details of the Regera. If not, here’s a quick breakdown. This new hypercar is a hybrid hypercar that is powering by a twin-turbo V8 engine and three electric motors. Together, the total power output of the car is 1,500 hp and 1,475 lb-ft of torque. Without a doubt, this is the most impressive car that Koenigsegg has ever created, and that’s quite an accomplishment considering what they have created.
As for the Agera XS, this one is a bit new to everyone. I’ll begin this car’s explanation by saying it’s essentially an Agera RS that’s been modified to drive on US roads. In fact, it’s the first Agera RS in the United States. “Why the XS name, though?” That name was given to the car at the customer’s request.
The car is finished in Karosserie Orange, with a diamond-dust metallic effect. Modifications made to this bright exterior include a bespoke aerodynamic pieces, as well as the largest rear wing ever that Koenigsegg has ever fitted to a car. Inside is black Alcantara with contrasting orange stitching. Even further inside the car is a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that’s mated to a CIMA seven-speed automatic transmission.
