Giving is what the Christmas spirit is all about, but someone thought he could give himself a present, too – and what a gift that was!
As it turns out, he took delivery of a Koenigsegg Agera R, complete with a red bow. You know, just like the ones us, mere mortals, put on our gifts that, unfortunately, are not a hypercar.
In fact, this owner had been hunting for an Agera R for some time before finding one in Japan that had less than 500 miles on the odometer, which makes it practically brand new. Its satin white bodywork is adorned with some blue details, but we guess that wasn’t what lured him into buying the Koenigsegg in the first place.
In all likelihood, it was its 1,115HP output when running on E85 ethanol, or 1,050HP on 98 octane gas. Being able to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h [62mph] in just 2.9 seconds and to 200 km/h [124mph] in just 7.5 seconds, along with a top speed in excess of 420 km/h (261 mph) are what make the Agera R a true hypercar.
Moreover, the Agera R is second only to the RS version, which is currently the fastest car in the world with a Bugatti Veyron-beating 284.3 mph (457.5 km/h) top speed. But, hey, more than 420 km/h should be enough for anyone; finding a long enough straight to get there will be the real challenge.
