However, one of the developers claims that with the exception of external influences and the use of more durable tyres the speed can reach up to 453 km/h. Machine is in the top 10 most expensive in the world. Also Agera was used in Need for Speed movie shooting.
The engine deserves the attention of Agera first of all. It is in the back. It is a five-liter V8 (960 hp) engine that uses the Twin Turbo system. The transmission represents seven degrees. It is robotic with two clutches. An interesting feature is the ability to use biofuels.
Swedish engineers have tried to reduce the weight of the Königszeg machine to a minimum by using light metals for bodywork and fuel tank production. The tank volume is 80 litres. The machine is equipped with special tires called Michelin. All this is combined with an elegant and beautiful design.
