With a hefty price tag of $5.3 million dollar, the Koenigsegg Agera S is possibly the most expensive hyper car nationwide. But that’s not the only record it’s bent on breaking. Since its inception in 1994, the Swedish high-end exotic carmaker has acquired a reputation for its exquisite offerings in the realm of seven-figure super cars and a penchant for engineering record-breaking engines. The company currently holds the world record for acceleration from zero to 300 km/h in just 14.53 seconds.

The Koenigsegg Agera S roadster, despite being tuned down for everyday usability, is equally impressive. With a newly developed 5.0-Litre V8 twin turbo engine, the 1040 horsepower hyper car dashes off from 0-100km/h in a mere 2.9 seconds, barely 0.1 seconds slower than its record breaking sibling, the Agera R. The same engine setup that granted the Agera S such remarkable acceleration also clocks in a top speed of 400km/h.

Every aspect of the car is meticulously calibrated and tuned. From the Carbon fibre with aluminium honeycomb and integrated fuel tanks to the double wishbones, two-way adjustable gas-hydraulic shock absorbers suspension system, and Triplex damper in the rear only the optimum parts are configured for optimal weight distribution and superb handling.
