I think 121 is part of the "final series" as the 25 RSs ARE the final series (of Agera)? Within this series of 25, there will probably be almost as many "one offs" and a series of three within the series (for Japan).

Making a "final series" RS for this Geneva is probably just another way of saying, Agera is finished, we are working on something new.. a cliffhanger for next(?) Geneva. A message for the competitors at Geneva to think about? That's my guess..

Are we sure this isn't KS car? He posted this 18w ago.



Exact same color scheme as this car.

Also, although 128 is to be the first US Agera RS, that could kinda leave a loophole being that 121 may not be a standard RS but a "final edition" RS.

I'm trying to figure out what's going on. If this isn't KS car, did someone just choose the same spec? Is it a friends? Giant coincedence?

From what I understand #121 is a more Red Orange, accent color is Silver not White and it's chassis 121 not 128 :^)

I hope KS is going to name his car "The Scream", after a famous Painting by a Scandinavian artist (maybe portraying CvK listening to his customers trying to make their very car more special specified than the others?).. ;^)

Quote by Edvard Munch “The camera will never compete with the brush and palette until such time as photography can be taken to Heaven or Hell.” I feel it relates to Koenigsegg in some way .. being in heaven and hell at the same time? "Pleasantly unpleasant", famous quote by one of Munch's fellow countrymen, Jens Sverdrup.

CvK is not alone in this regard, every brand has to "struggle" with customers trying to outdo one another in terms of bespokness. Just look at all the crazy MSO specs P1s/LTs, people doing crazier and crazier Zondas/Huayras and Veyrons as years go by.. Will be interesting to see to what extent Egg customers will go to "outdo" #121 and #127 in bespokeness. With #128, I sort of get the feeling that once the customer was told there was an orange RS in the works with gold dust in the paint, he requested diamonds together with gold in his just do top #121...
It's all a bit silly if you ask me, I prefer it nice and clean anyway, prime example being #105 wich remains as my favorite Agera by far.

I want the most gold and diamonds you ever made, I want even wider wheels and 100, no 200, no 300 hp extra, I want über front splitter, quadruple canards, yes! On the mirrors too! The widest side-skirts and extreme wings all over the car. Roof-scoop, check! .. did I say with extra diamonds? My ego can't take not having the most extreme car made so far..

I love how 122 looked the other day, without the rear wing and model lettering and with the forged 9-spoke CCX wheels. Clean, classic ..

There is something with "Pleasantly unpleasant", "More comfortable than what... BEING STABBED?" and all these things makes me think there NEEDS to be a "The Scream", "Despair" or "The Sick Child" -Edition without diamond dust! (but maybe with 300 hp extra :^) Or what about giving cars names from Bergman (Music in Darkness, Dreams, Wild Strawberries, The Seventh Seal, The Devils Eye) or Hamsun (Hunger, Growth of the Soil, Shallow Soil, The Wild Choir)? No diamond dust, just dust and Scandinavian melancholy. Available in Black or Grey only! :^)

So will this just be an RS with a one:1 engine or is there more to it? The downforce figures look the same as the RS from memory?

There actually seems to be somewhat more to it as all the other RS models have a kerb weight of 1395, according to Koenigsegg's own website, whereas this is 20 kgs lighter.

Would be interesting to know where the weightsavings were made and whether all the One:1 spec'ed RS models weigh 1375 or if something rather unique (and costly I'd imagine) was done to further shed mass on the "One of 1".

From Koenigsegg's website
Koenigsegg Presents Production Spec Regera, 'Agera Final' and Agera RS at Geneva 2016 - Koenigsegg | Koenigsegg
Koenigsegg Agera ‘Final’

Koenigsegg Automotive AB is pleased to announce the creation of a new, completely bespoke limited edition called “Agera Final”. This series will be limited to just three vehicles, which will be the last of the Agera model line.

All three vehicles were sold prior to their announcement at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.



The Koenigsegg Agera RS was an outstanding success. Unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, all 25 cars scheduled for production were sold within 10 months, making the Agera RS the fastest selling model line in Koenigsegg’s history. The Agera Final series is both a celebration of this success and a fitting conclusion to the Agera model line.

The Agera Final program will give owners unprecedented input into the design and specification of custom made parts for their car.

The Koenigsegg “One of 1” has been prepared especially for the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and is the first of the Agera Final series.

BUILDING “ONE OF 1”

As its name suggests, the “One of 1” is a unique vehicle that will never be duplicated. It features the following unique, customized and upgraded elements:

  • Custom designed top-mounted rear wing with second blade
  • Custom designed roof-mounted air intake
  • Custom designed Koenigsegg shield mesh at rear
  • Custom badging on wing, side and interior of vehicle.
  • 3D Printed twin-exit titanium exhaust outlet with imprinted “One of 1” name
  • Custom designed venturi at rear with adjustable winglets
  • Custom designed triple winglets on front bumper
  • Custom designed One of 1 front splitter
  • Custom designed paint finish with partial clear carbon
  • Custom polished aluminum interior switchgear


The Agera Final program has been designed specifically with a view to optimizing the vehicle for the customer’s desired purpose. In the case of the “One of 1”, the customer wanted an Agera that would be as close to a One:1 as possible in performance terms, while retaining the roof window, stowable roof and full luggage space.

The “One of 1” is fitted with an upgraded 1MW engine and weighs just 1380kg with all fluids and fuel on board. Dry weight is 1285kg.

The Koenigsegg One:1 featured front air vents and a top-mounted air intake that were significant in increasing downforce and performance but took away the ability to store the removable roof in the front of the car. Koenigsegg designers worked directly with the owner of the “One of 1” to overcome this compromise and deliver a solution that maintains our unique roof and luggage storage system while still adding aerodynamic and performance benefits.

A new double-blade rear wing, air intake, front splitter, side skirts, venturi and triple-front winglets were all designed specifically for the “One of 1” using computational fluid dynamics to optimize downforce and maintain a fully functional luggage area at the front of the car.

This solution involved customized design, tooling and fabrication of one-off parts that will only be used on the “One of 1” – a truly bespoke approach to create a Koenigsegg that will never be duplicated.

AT-COST OPTIONS, NOW STANDARD

The Agera Final is a celebration of the Agera range and as the last models to wear the Agera badge, the Final is a limited edition of considerable importance.

It is fitting, then, that the Agera Final models not only receive bespoke aerodynamic treatments, but also have full access to the Koenigsegg equipment list, with all options available as standard equipment at no extra cost.

Popular options, now available as standard on the Agera Final, include:

The 1MW engine upgrade, which allows customers to feel the full power of the Koenigsegg twin-turbo V8 under foot, with 1,360hp and 1,371Nm of torque available for the ultimate in performance.
Koenigsegg’s unique Aircore™ hollow carbon fibre wheels, which weigh less than 7kgs each and save over 20kg in unsprung mass compared with Koenigsegg’s lightweight, regular wheels.
A clear carbon finish, or partial clear carbon, which shows the beautiful weave of the Agera’s carbon fibre body panels, is also available at no extra cost.
A FINALE WORTHY OF AN OVATION

The Agera range has consolidated Koenigsegg’s reputation for building the ultimate in performance vehicles ever since its launch in 2010.

The Agera immediately won acclaim with the Top Gear ‘Hypercar of the Year’ award in its launch year.

The Agera R set a blistering pace from 0-300-0km/h in just 21.19 seconds in 2011.

The Agera S saw Koenigsegg debut an industry first with our Aircore™ carbon fibre wheels, which are still the only OEM-manufactured carbon fibre wheels in the industry.

The Agera range inspired the One:1 series, the first production car with a power-to-weight ratio of 1:1 and a car that set records at tracks around the world. The One:1 also blitzed the 0-300-0km/h record set by the Agera R with a time of 17.95 seconds, more than 3 full seconds ahead of the original mark.

The Agera RS, with 25 examples to be built, became Koenigsegg’s fastest selling car in January 2016 with all 25 cars sold in just 10 months.

Agera Final models will be built for delivery towards the end of 2017.

I guess he just wanted to attract some attention with that, as he usually do.
Or... he thinks that's KS' orange/black/white Agera RS.

Done.


On the subject of colors, it's interesting that we have "Loke" yellow... "Alba" orange, this is a name that means anything to anyone?

According to CVK in the interview with Tim/Shmee150 this car is heading to the Middle East.
I can't understand GTboard claiming things he apperently has no clue of.
