As incredible as the Agera RS may be, Koenigsegg’s 1,160 horsepower hypercar is, as you might expect, not exactly safe for road use. Thankfully, however, the Swedish manufacturer is fixing that: behold the brand new Agera XS.
More or less a road-legal rendition of the renowned RS, the XS version of the Agera comes decked out in a bold “Karosserie Orange” diamond-dusted metallic with carbon fiber applications throughout — most notably on the XS’s massive rear wing, which is the largest-ever to appear on a Koenigsegg. Inside, black alcantara and orange trim match the vehicle’s exterior while the likes of Apple CarPlay, smart airbags and a hydraulic lifting system — none of which appeared on the RS — are all employed here. Fans will be happiest to know, however, that though road-legal, the XS doesn’t pale in comparison to its track-ready counterpart: the RS’s 1,160-horsepower 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 once again appears under the hood, as does the vehicles seven-speed paddle shift transmission.
The Agera XS is set to make its public debut at Monterey Car Week, which kicked off yesterday and runs through August 21.
