The 'standard' Agera R produces 1,140 horsepower on E85, or 960 hp on US pump gas. Koenigsegg's latest child, the cutting edge One:1 comes with 3D-printed turbochargers and 1,360 horsepower. But can you make an Agera R more powerful than that simply by adding larger turbos?

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.
It's the concentration of batshit among the modest cars that makes Geneva such a fun show. Geneva's where we first laid eyes on Count Von Koenigsegg's sleds. This year, the Count showed up with the Agera R. Eight-9-10! 1099hp!
