#077 Development Agera (R)

For how long was the 4.7-litre engine in #077? It had at least a few "face-lifts" but but when was the engine changed? Anyone who knows?

It used to have the 4.7? Didn't know that.. Twin turbo or supercharged?

One thought would be sometime during 2010 after the car was shown in pre-production state. Another logic time would be in May this year when the car recived its MY2013 R upgrade, makes sense since Koenigsegg almost never use the car for press or to my knowledge, private test drives either.

To me though the most logic thing is sometime between 2010-2011. I don't think they would develop a new engine without testing it in a car before putting it in production. Sure you can do dyno-testing, but it doesn't say much how the engine will interact with the rest of the car.

The development car originally had a 4.7 fixed-vane twin turbo. That engine was replaced at some point by a 5.0 variable geometry-vane turbo, and of course that engine was upgraded to R-spec later.

And wow, that stability control is insane.

Matt Farah on the Agera R:
Quote:
Good spot I got to drive the Agera R too and it was batshit crazy. My driving segment is on the DVD. The speed of the car is impressive, but not as scary as the Venom. But the brakes, the stability control, the handling, the fact that it looks, feels, and sounds like it wants you dead but you'd actually have to steer it right into a tree to crash it, was dope. It was easy to slide a bit, stupidly fast, and I've never felt brakes like that on a road car. And it was easy to drive; as easy as a Gallardo or something, but way cooler because the view inside is total fighter plane.

not even that many. Koenigsegg has built 120 cars total since its inception. The only way they can stay alive as a company is all the mad scientist tech that Christian Von K licenses to other companies. Ever see a ford or GM car with a "flex fuel" badge on it? Christian Von K. He owns the patent, and makes supercars for fun. In fact, he owns more than a dozen patents that will keep his great-great-grandchildren wealthy beyond their wildest dreams. He just likes building crazy ****.

I found that second bit very interesting. Didnt know that about CvK.

CvK comes from a very rich family to start with, and started as an entrepeneur when he was 19 and was very succesfull. Money is not a problem for him to say the least

Guess why he thought about buying SAAB?
