One-Off Koenigsegg Agera S Hundra Heads to the Geneva Motor Show


While mainstream manufacturers build several hundred cars per hour, it takes small low production volume automakers like Sweden's Koenigsegg years to reach triple-digit figures. However, some ten years after they began customer deliveries, Koenigsegg has made its one-hundredth car.Not that each and every car that they make is not special, but they have paid extra special care and attention for number one hundred, a one-off example, based on their latest model, the Agera S.
Called the Agera S Hundra, the Swedish word for hundred, the right-hand drive car has been built for an unknown buyer, and it will most likely be the most spectacular car they've built so far. Details are currently scarce, but judging from the available photos and the official press release, the car will have a 'naked' carbon fiber finish, which will be complimented by "artisan hand laid and swirled, 24 carat gold leaf inlays, creating an intriguing mix of traditional and hi-tech craftsmanship."
Worth noting is the fact that the new Agera S, the firm's newest offering, is their first car to achieve its maximum horsepower output without using green bioethanol or race fuel. The S makes 1,030 hp using regular premium fuel, and a maximum torque figure of 1,100 Nm or 811 lb-ft.
Along with the car, which will make its debut at the Geneva International Motor Show, the firm has also released a new coffee table book about their history, called '0 to 100 in 10 years', where enthusiasts will find out interesting details about their history, such as the fact that the company was founded in 1994, but only managed to deliver their first customer car eight years later, in 2002.
