There are fast cars, there are really fast cars, and then there are machines that are built for the sole purpose of achieving speeds far greater than anything else on the road. Koenigsegg is the type of company that makes cars which fit the description of that last category. Now they are announcing a new version of their Agera hypercar, the Agera RS.

Koenigsegg released teaser images stating their intentions to unveil the Agera RS and a new car dubbed Regera at the Geneva International Motor Show on March 3, 2015. As details of the cars are scarce until the unveiling, we can only speculate on what the Agera RS and the Regera are going to be. Koenigsegg already has 3 trims in the Agera range: the Agera, the Agera S, and the Agera R. They also have the One:1, a car so extreme, that it is put in it’s own category of “Megacar”. The term Megacar stems for the fact that the 5.0L twin-turbocharged V8 engine in the One:1 has the power output equivalent to 1 megawatt of power, or 1,340 hp.With the extensive use of carbon fiber, it also weighs 1,340 kg, giving the One:1 a power-to-weight ratio of 1horsepower per kilogram. We can only assume that the Agera RS will split the gap between the Agera R, which has 1,140 hp, and the One:1.

As the teaser image for the Regera says that it will be a “Megacar”, it should have at the very minimum the same power as the One:1. At this point we would have to assume that the Regera will have even more power though, as Koenigsegg usually likes to one-up itself any chance it gets.

The 2015 Geneva International Motor Show is gearing up to be one exciting show. With 2015 being the 85th anniversary of the Geneva Motor Show, it will be open to the public from March 5th 2015 to March 15th. Expect the show to have many sports car debuts.Ferrari, Porsche, Koenigsegg, and Ford are just some of the companies promising to debut some very exciting cars at the show.
