Video has emerged of what looks to be a super-expensive Koenigsegg Agera R supercar crashing in China. Priced somewhere around $4,000,000 US, it’s likely one of the most—if not the most—expensive single-vehicle accident ever.
Christian Von Koenigsegg once told Swedish online magazine Nyheter 24 that he invested all of his family's money in the car company he started at age 22 in Angleholm, working eight years without a salary and seven at a paltry sum. Such is the life of an über nerd with a dream.
Koenigsegg is showing a mildly updated Agera R at the Geneva Motor Show, featuring several technical improvements intended to keep the corkscrew-doored hypercar at the forefront of modern speed games.
Everyone knows there is nothing slow about the Ferrari 458 Italia. Of course, that doesn't mean the completely insane 2932 pound 1115 horsepower Koenigsegg Agera R doesn't have the power to make the 458 look a lot slower than it actually is.
The Guinness people say it's official — the Koenigsegg Agera R's 0-300-0 km/h (186.4 mph) time of 21.19 seconds, set this past September, lands the Swedish supercar a world record in that performance event. Among production cars, that is.
