Swedish supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg has announced plans to unveil the Agera RS and Regera models at next month’s 2015 Geneva motor show.

The brand has given away few details of the debutant duo, releasing only posters revealing the names of the cars.

The Agera RS promises to be an enhanced version of the Agera R, which produces 895kW (1200hp) and 1200Nm from its twin-turbocharged 5.0-litre V8 in its current form.

Koenigsegg says the Regera (which means to govern, rule or reign over in Swedish) will become its second ‘megacar’, following in the foot steps of the One:1.

Its name suggests that the Regera is likely to positioned above the One:1, potentially churning out even more than the 1000kW (one megawatt, hence the megacar tag) and 1371Nm of the brand’s flagship performance machine.

News of the Regera will be welcomed by Koenigsegg fans who missed out on the One:1. Koenigsegg built just seven cars, one of which was presented at last year’s Geneva motor show.

The Agera R has been in production since 2013 and is readily available, though remains super-exclusive in its own right.

Both the Agera R and the One:1 accelerate from 0-100km/h in approximately 2.8 seconds, while flat out the latter boasts a 10km/h advantage, claiming a top speed of 453km/h versus the Agera R’s 443km/h limit.

Stay tuned for more details of the Koenigsegg Agera RS and Regera in the lead up to their Geneva unveilings on March 3.
