Back to London photos again. After the Ferrari Concours D’Elegance in Sydney and the Warrior film premiere, I still haven’t finished posting my photos from the European summer 2011.

This time I’m highlighting the mighty Koenigsegg Agera R, Swedish version of a Supercar.

Koenigsegg was founded in 1994 and in 2002 they introduced their first supercar, the Koenigsegg CC. Unlike most new supercar manufacturers, Koenigsegg stayed afloat and managed to compete with the older established supercars and after several versions of the CC (CC8S, CCR, CCX, CCGT and CCXR), they created their latest model, the Agera.

The car spotted here is the Agera R and similar to the CCR, this car runs on bio fuel rather than petrol, making it the greener option.

The Agera R can accelerate from 0–100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and reach a theoretical top speed of approximately 442 km/h), making it faster than a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, although this has not been officially verified.

Personally I love the car, it looks great and seeing it driving around on the streets of London is very surreal. This is the kind of car you’d normally see at a car show or in the showroom, so seeing it on the streets is extraordinary. When it’s parked next to a Pagani Zonda(I know, what are the odds of that…) you are drawn more to the Zonda simply because of the Zonda’s raw and aggresive design, but on it’s own the Agera R would blow anyone away.Time for the photos. All photos were taken by me in London and Paris in July 2011.
