The full performance specifications of the Koenigsegg Agera R have been released, revealing that the Swedish supercar is capable of sprinting from 0-100km/h in less than three seconds.

The official time is 2.9 seconds, putting it in an elite stable of around 14 production vehicles to break the 3.0-second barrier, including the Bugatti Veyron, the Nissan GT-R, and the Gumpert Apollo.

The Agera R’s 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine produces 820kW of power and an almighty 1200Nm of torque.

Accelerating from 0-200km/h takes just 7.5 seconds, which is about the same time it takes a Holden Commodore SV6 to hit half that speed.

Coming to a complete stop from 200km/h in the Koenigsegg takes 5.2 seconds.

Koenigsegg has also revealed the Agera R’s combined cycle fuel consumption is 14.7 litres/100km, which is forgivable for a car that sports its performance data.

Sweden’s latest supercar is 4293mm long, 1996mm wide, 1120mm tall and has just 100mm of ground clearance at the front and rear.

The chassis is carbon fibre and the body is made from pre-impregnated carbon fibre/kevlar. The hardtop roof is removable and can be stored under the bonnet.

The 19-inch aluminium wheels at the front house 397mm ceramic brakes with six-piston calipers, while 380mm ceramics and four-piston calipers sit behind the 20-inch wheels at the rear. Painted around the edges are dedicated Michelin Supersport tyres with a speed rating of more than 420km/h.

The traction control is Formula 1-inspired with five different handling modes, while other sporting features include the adaptive rear wing, four-point seatbelts and a G sensor.

The Agera R is much more than a stripped-out racer, with power windows, satellite navigation, USB connectivity, climate control, leather carpets and two front airbags all standard.

The only thing still to be revealed is the price, but we’ve been told not to expect any change from one million euros ($1.39 million).
