Here's a fast look at the replacement for the world's fastest production car

Koenigsegg has released a preview image of the upcoming successor to its Agera RS hypercar, published to the company's Australian Facebook page.

The rear shot doesn't reveal a whole lot, but we can see the new model will have a prominent rear wing, slim LED tail-lights, an aggressive diffuser outline, and fat rear tyres.

Other than the shadowy image, we don't know much about the Swedish supercar specialist's upcoming release, however, reports overseas have quoted company boss, Christian von Koenigsegg, saying to expect a motorsport-like vehicle without hybrid technology or electrification.

With that in mind, we can assume the new model will feature a revised version of the Agera RS's 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8 – which in its current form makes a whopping 865kW of power and 1280Nm of torque.

The Agera RS leaves some big shoes to fill. It currently holds the World Production Speed Record (457kmh) and the 0-400-0km/h record (33.29 seconds).

Orders for the new hypercar are reportedly open already, though we can expect Koenigsegg's successor to the Agera RS to be revealed in full at the 2019 Geneva motor show in March next year.
