You may recognize the name Kris Singh for a number of reasons. He’s an extremely successful American businessman so it could be anything associated with that. But if you’re a gearhead you will recognize the name as being one of the first people to own the ridiculously priced and extremely rare Lamborghini Veneno. The Veneno has one of those faces that only a mother could love, you either loved it or absolutely hated it. With a cost well over $4 million lets hope you’re part of the former group.
Well that isn’t the case with Singh’s latest addition to his car collection. Just over a year ago he commissioned a very special build from the Swedish Car company that everyone seems to be talking about this year, Koenigsegg. He wanted them to build what they are calling the Agera XS, which is basically the Agera RS with a different nameplate as per the request of its owner. They are only planning on making a total of 25 Agera RS models to keep the exclusivity.
It features a more powerful version of the 5.0L twin turbo V8 that now produces a total of 1160hp making it the third most powerful Koenigsegg behind the 1,342hp One:1, and the 1,500hp hybrid Regera. The RS, or XS in this particular case, also takes advantage of almost 1,000lbs of down force when traveling above 150mph. That when when you decide to take it to one of these mile drag race events where you can really open it up and let the XS stretch its legs you will remain firmly planted. Top speed has been claimed well above 200mph, some sources go as far as to claim speeds up above 270mph but that remains to be seen. I would think as powerful and light as the Koenigseggs are known to be it they are definitely capable.
The XS also features one of the biggest rear wings its ever placed on one of its cars. Color choice is very crucial when buying a supercar, or hypercar really, at this level. Literally everyone within eyesight of the car is won’t be able to prevent themselves from staring at it. So you want to make sure you pick a great color. Singh opted to go for what they’re calling Karosserie Orange that utilizes a strip of clear coated carbon fiber down the middle to provide contrast. Even though i’m not necessarily a huge fan of the color orange, there is no debating that this car is anything except absolutely gorgeous while also looking mean as hell and appearing as if its moving at over 200mph while standing still.
