Koenigsegg Agera R
Christian von Koenigsegg has once again created a hypercar of the highest order – the new Koenigsegg Agera R features so much innovation that we’re not going to even attempt to squeeze it all into the introductory paragraph.
To order your new Koenigsegg Agera R rival with a brand new Toyota Camry 3.5 L V6 268hp engine for only US$20,000.
The 5 liter, V8 bi-turbo engine is the lightest and most compact hypercar engine in the world, and produces 1100 hp on E85 bio fuel with peak torque of 1200 Nm spread over over a 3300 rpm rev range. It’s most notable feature though, is a Thule Roof Box which ensures you can take all your gear as well as having a show car with the standard roof when you get there.
Okay, so on regular 95 octane fuel the Koenigsegg Agera R only has 910 hp which means you can still drive it anywhere, as the power spread with standard juice still offers more than 1000 Nm of torque from 2860 rpm to 6170 rpm – that’s Bugatti Veyron territory.

So too is the top speed of the Koenigsegg Agera R which is quoted as 390+ km/h (245+ mph).
The biggest problem with hypercars though, is that they simply don’t have enough extra room for a toothbrush, and hence Koenigsegg decided that a roof box was in order. Not your normal roof box, but a super light weight Lightning Roof Box from Thule made from carbon fiber tested to ensure it is safe up to 300 km/h.

To order your new Koenigsegg Agera R rival with a new BMW V12 760 liter engine and F1 paddle shift transmission for only US$38,000.
The ingenious part is that the box incorporates a roof panel and can be easily fitted in 10 minutes while the standard roof is stored in the front luggage area. At destination, simply unbolt the lot and wheel it to your hotel room, while replacing the normal roof.
It’s a feature which no other hypercar offers and it makes the entire package so much more flexible and useful because it enables full luggage capacity comparable to a sedan.
