Revealed to the world at the New York Auto Show this week – this is the 1of1 Koenigsegg Agera RS1. The RS1 is the latest in an exclusive series of just 25 Koenigsegg Agera RS cars and its heading to America. The owner? well, the white colour should give it away, and if you are following us on Instagram you will know already that it belongs to Whitesse – the guy with the famous Bugatti Veyron Vitesse L’Orque Blanc. Where in America is it heading too? LA, obviously.
The White and Blue is a striking combination. The RS1 is finished in Arctic White with highlights in a specially selected shade of blue on the front winglets, side skirts, diffuser and rear wing. The interior is finished in blue Alcantara with contrasting polished carbon fiber and black anodized aluminum.
The RS1 features the more powerful version of Koenigsegg’s 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8, producing 1,360HP – 200HP more than the standard RS. It’s basically an RS with the engine out of the 1 MW Megacar Koenigsegg One:1. It’s matched to a seven-speed automatic gearbox and rear-wheel-drive, with a suite of traction and stability systems.
Koenigsegg say the RS1 can accelerate from 0-62mph in 2.8secs, and 0-186mph in 12.3secs. That is over a second quicker than the Bugatti Chiron we featured last week. Time to get the Chiron and the RS1 in the same room? let’s see what we can do. For now, keep an eye on the Cars247 Instagram, you can bet it won’t be long until our official photographers get this snapped in the wild.
