The Koenigsegg Agera R is a hyper car made by Koenigsegg in the Asphalt series. The Koenigsegg Agera R replaces the Koenigsegg CCXR and it is the high-performance variant of the regular Koenigsegg Agera.
The Koenigsegg Agera R is the high-performance variant of the regular Koenigsegg Agera. Boasting 1124 bhp and a 5.0L twin-turbocharged V8, as well as a purported top speed of 273 mph (440 km/h), the Koenigsegg Agera R makes for a very powerful car to appear in a video game. The Koenigsegg Agera R's doors open like dihedral synchro-helix doors (raptor doors) like all Koenigsegg cars. It is weaker than the Koenigsegg One:1.
The Koenigsegg Agera R makes its debut in the Asphalt series in Asphalt 7: Heat, as a secret unlockable car. Alongside the SSC Tuatara, it is the fastest car in that game, at the highest end of Tier 7. It is also notorious for being extremely difficult to unlock in that game, only available to win at the Car Lottery.
The Koenigsegg Agera R returns in Asphalt 8: Airborne, although no longer the fastest car in the game. It has a starting rank of 1545 (shared to the final rank of Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series from class A) that extends up to 1651. If maxed out and with all levels of Pro Kits on, the Agera R gains a final rank of 1719. A tuning kit adds 25 to its effective rank.
Similar to the RUF RT 12 S, the Koenigsegg Agera R excels mainly in top speed. The Agera R also features decent handling, but is very highly suspectible to skidding out of control and crashing, like with the Mercedes-Benz Biome. However, it suffers from slow acceleration compared with most other Class S cars, hampered even further by a weak and short nitro. Because of this, it is only useful in Career mode due to its high top speed, but can later be replaced with better alternatives like the W Motors Lykan HyperSport. The car also has a massive speed modifier of 87.17%.
The Koenigsegg Agera R qualifies for the following events:
- Race 22 of Season 8 — a Classic event set in French Guiana. Only Koenigsegg Agera Rs are allowed to participate.
- Race 31 of Season 8 — a Versus event set in Azure Coast, racing against the Mercedes-Benz Silver Lightning.
- Race 35 of Season 8 — a Versus event set in Wall Ascent, racing against the W Motors Lykan HyperSport. Here, the W Motors Lykan HyperSport performs much better.
- Race 45 of Season 9 — a single-lap Classic event set in Nevada. This event requires a maxed out Koenigsegg Agera R in order to participate.
Owing to the fact that the events featuring the Agera R as the dominant car appearing once in a blue moon, the Agera R is mostly useless outside Career mode, although it is required for the completion of the Euro Aces collection and the aforementioned races. It also requires 16 FIV8s, which the player is better off using them on the TRION NEMESIS, Mosler Land Shark or the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition. Due to its disadvantages, beginners should purchase either the Lamborghini Veneno, Mercedes-Benz Silver Lightning, Ferrari FXX Evoluzione or W Motors Lykan Hypersport instead.
Koenigsegg One:1 Edit
- Main article: Koenigsegg One:1
The Koenigsegg One:1 is the higher-performance variant of the Koenigsegg Agera R. While the One: 1 was, like the Agera R, once the king of Class S (and hence, the game), it has also fallen behind more powerful competitors. The One:1 rectifies any performance issues present in the Agera R, including a faster acceleration, greatly improved nitro boost and duration, and sharper handling.
