Street Legal: Koenigsegg Agera S launch in Singapore

 

Mid last June, 200 VIPs and guests were invited to the Ritz Carlton Millenia hotel to witness the launch of the Koenigsegg Agera S in Singapore. The hypercar boasts a top speed of 420km/h and is by far the fastest car on the roads in Singapore, and not to mention, the most expensive. The S$5.3 million price tag did not faze its new owner, Angela Tan – wife of investor Denis Chua. According to Denis Chua, they did not make the extravagant purchase on a whim. They have actually personally test-driven it in Sweden.

"It is with great pleasure that we launch the first Koenigsegg in Singapore today. Today's launch means a lot to us as Koenigsegg has evolved from being a small and unknown car developer, to becoming a household name, revered for excellence and performance - competing head to head with the strongest brands in the industry." said Christian von Koenigsegg, founder of Koenigsegg Automotive AB, who was present at the event. He also announced the appointment of Motorway Group of Companies as the official distributor of the Koenigsegg brand of hyper cars.

The rear-engined Koenigsegg Agera S, sports a 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine which produces a staggering 1,040 horses and 1,100Nm of torque. The hypercar can go from 0-100km/h in just 2.9 seconds.
