Koenigsegg stunned the crowds at this year’s Monterey Car Week with a fully-road-legal Agera XS. It’s an incredibly bright supercar that is essentially an Agera RS that’s been modified to be driven on US roads. Finished in the bright shade of “Karosserie Orange” with a diamond-dust metallic effect, the supercar features a healthy dose of carbon fiber that makes the color combination pop. The rear wing, which is finished in carbon fiber, looks similar to the one found on the Koenigsegg One:1, but is the largest rear wing ever fitted to a Koenigsegg – per the owner’s wishes.
To match the Agera XS’ orange exterior, the interior features black alcantara with orange contrast stitching. The road-legal Agera XS is also fitted with convenience features befitting a multi-million-dollar supercar. The XS boasts of 1.8g of cornering force, luggage space, smart airbags, a front and rear lift system, and a detachable hardtop (that can be stored in the front), it’s a bit more practical.
Other than the exterior color and the massive rear wing, the Agera XS, goes unchanged over the Agera RS. With a 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8 pumping out over 1300bhp connected to a seven-speed paddle shift gearbox, the Agera RS can accelerate from 0-186mph in just 14 seconds. Then hit 250mph just six seconds later.
The XS marks the Swedish manufacturer’s re-entry into the US market.
