Koenigsegg Sold All Agera RSs In Ten Months At $2M A Pop

Illustration for article titled Koenigsegg Sold All Agera RSs In Ten Months At $2M A Pop

At last year’s Geneva Motor Show, Koenigsegg announced that as well as building the craziest hypercar we’ve ever seen, they will also make 25 units of the Agera RS track special. Ten month later, all are sold.

The Agera RS is a barely detuned version of the ultra-limited One:1, the car Koenigsegg refers to as the first ‘mega car’ for packing one megawatt of power. Considering that one of those costs $6 million today, the RS was an absolute bargain for around $2 million, or approximately $2.3 if you opted for the same horsepower figures as the One:1's.

As well as being Koenigsegg’s fastest selling model yet, the RS is also their first proper global offering, being homologated for the U.S. as well as making it to Canada, the United Kingdom, Japan, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UAE.

Unlike last year, Koenigsegg won’t surprise us with two new models next month at the Geneva Motor Show, but as long as they can tell us more about the Regera and the next evolution of the Agera family, I’ll be all ears.

Proof that filthy rich guys are not car enthusiasts. Less exciting (well ...) cars like the LaFerrari or the 918 Spyder (Enzos, Carrera GTs or other ltd Porsches, Lamborghinis and so on) are sold out before they ever where showed to the public or even where sketched. Bugatti needed like forever to sell the few Veyrons. The ever so wonderful Spykers are nowhere to be seen anymore. I save you more examples.

This Koenigsegg selling pity only shows the bragging rights of a brand.

These companies should consider making a run of enthusiasts cars for an affordable price point. Talking Dino. Or BMW Z1.

Begone that showpiece thing that no one ever sees on the road or track.
