The end of a supercar era has finally come. Swedish manufacturer Koenigsegg has wrapped up construction of the final two iterations of their world-beating Agera RS, and have nicknamed the cars Thor and Väder. The cars were sold long ago, as was the rest of the Agera line, but they will be meeting their owners for some fun in the sun at a manufacturer event in southern Germany this weekend.
The Agera debuted in 2011 as Koenigsegg’s successor to their impressive CCX and CCXR models. The highest-spec Agera RS took the world by storm in 2015 with a 1,341 horsepower, twin-turbocharged V8 mounted amidships in the 3,075-pound coupe. All that power is routed to the rear wheels via a single-plate seven-speed transmission, which allows the Agera RS to sprint to 60 miles per hour in only 2.8 seconds.
But the Agera RS’s strongest suit is its slippery aerodynamic profile, which generates massive downforce without increased drag, allowing the much smaller car to reach 277.9 mph in November of 2017, taking over the title of world’s fastest production car from the long-reigning, and much heavier, Bugatti Veyron iterations.
The last two Agera RS examples will feature every single option that typical buyers have to check the boxes to receive, including bespoke aero kits and unique appearance packages. Thor receives a two-tone carbon fiber exterior with diamond-flake details as well as an enormous dorsal fin in classic Le Mans-style. Väder, meanwhile, comes with a standard carbon fiber finish alongside the diamond-flake details, white gold leaf, and two smaller wings to complement its large rear spoiler.
Both Thor and Väder feature engine upgrades that Koenigsegg refers to as the "1MW" package — essentially upping the power to one megawatt or 1,360 horsepower. The Final Edition cars, therefore, become closer siblings with the One:1 model, which was named after its equal weight to power ratio.
From Germany, Thor and Väder will be shipped to the UK for the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Koenigsegg’s future contributions to the world's lineup of hypercars is not in doubt, however, as the brand has already promised to reveal a successor to the Agera line at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show next March.
