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?
1,360 horsepower also happens to be 1 megawatt, that's why Christian calls the One:1 the first "megacar." Fair enough, but 1,400 hp is more than a megawatt. What does that make this Agera R then?
Of course take this with a grain of salt, because we haven't seen the dyno sheet, but the world's busiest supercar hunter, Marchettino usually knows what he is on about:
I jump onboard the Koenigsegg Agera R, the most powerful hypercar that I've ever experienced! The engine of this Agera R produces an incredible 1400hp as the owner replaced the stock turbos with something more extreme, that's even more power than the One:1! The way the car unleashes the power is quite impressive, it feels very brutal and not easy to tame by the moment you turn off the traction control!
Can it really be that simple, or are we seeing a car here that's gonna blow up somewhere in the next 5,000 miles?
Either way, boost never sounded this good.
