Just when we thought the Geneva Motor Show couldn't get any more insane with all of these pre-releases, the team at GTSpirit have pounced on the interwebz with these first photos of Koenigsegg's newest creation, the Agera.

Just when we thought the Geneva Motor Show couldn't get any more insane with all of these pre-releases, the team at GTSpirit have pounced on the interwebz with these first photos of Koenigsegg's newest creation, the Agera.

Still Swedish, still hypercar, the Agera is supposedly an all new model.  However, when compared to the outgoing CCX, the two are almost identical aside from the styling details.  A closer look at the dimensions show the length, height and width are exactly the same as the CCX. 

Also kept the same is the powerplant, a 4.7-liter V8 producing 910 PS (669 kW / 898 hp) at 6850 rpm and 1100 Nm (811 lb-ft) at 5100rpm.  With a dry weight of 1290kg (2832 lbs), sprint to 100 km/h transpires in 3.1 seconds, 200 km/h (124 mph) in 8.9 seconds and a top speed of 390+ km/h (245+ mph).

Same as the CCX again, the top is removable and stores away under the bonnet.  The body structure is still pre-impregnated carbon fibre/kevlar with a flat floor tray containing Venturi tunnels towards the rear.  The chassis also remains aluminum honeycomb reinforced carbon fiber with an adjustable suspension.

One thing different with the body is the all-new carbon fibre center console and tunnel assembly. A new lighting system which uses "invisible nanotubes" is used for buttom illumination.

No price has been revealed yet.  According to GTSpirit Koenigsegg plans to build 16 to 20 units per year. Order books open at the Geneva Motor Show in four days.  At that time hopefully we'll have some clarity whether the Agera is a heavily upgraded CCX or an all new model.
