Ängelholm, 7 February 2015: The Agera R has all the features and ability to do things of previous year models, but also features new and (like nothing else in the world) solutions to improve performance and visual appearance even further. Examples of these improvements include: visible carbon on the front bonnet and bumper, new front side winglets, revolutionary Aircore carbon fiber wheels, new Aero exhaust, increased power and a raised RPM limit.
Koenigsegg was the first Hypercar manufacturer to take steps toward green technology with the release of the (related to fuel from plants) CCXR in 2007. The Agera R, based on the highly competitive Agera, follows in the footsteps of the CCXR as it also runs on E85 (fuel from plants). Among the many differences to the standard Agera, the Agera R has an upgraded fuel and engine management system with enough flow ability to create 1140hp and 1200Nm of torque on E85 and E100 (fuel from plants). As there is less energy content per given volume in these (fuels from plants) compared to normal petrol, the fuel system has to manage a flow that is just like a 2000hp petrol engine, which means that the Agera R’s return-less fuel system has the highest ability (to hold or do something) of any car presently in production.
As the Agera R is a flexfuel car, it can also be run on normal petrol. As 95 octane fuel has less octane than ethanol E85, the power is reduced to 960hp with 1100Nm of torque due to the boost pressure and ignition timing being changed to match the fuel characteristics. In order to give the Agera R maximum flexibility when it comes to power delivery, Koenigsegg has put into use the latest technology when it comes to turbo materials and design. This reduces the (slow or no movement/the force of something moving) of the turbine wheel and axle and therefore gives improved response.
