so what’s so special about a roof box, besides being the first supercar to sport one? the super roof box is integrated with a roof panel of the Agera R (so it only fits an Agera R, to be exact), which replaces the stock Agera roof. the stock roof is then stored in the front luggage compartment. simply unbolt it, get the bell hop to cart the roof box to your room, while you get busy with putting on the standard roof whcih is stored in the luggage compartment – provided that you did not forget to put it in the luggage compartment before your trip.

beyond its carbon fiber with aluminum honeycomb body, lies a 5.0-liter V8 motor that pushes out 1115 horsepower at 6900 RPM and over 1000 Nm of torque across 2700 to 6170 RPM which enables the Agera R to propel from zero to 100 km/h in under 3 seconds. this supercar engine is mated to a specially developed 7-speed dual clutch transmission with paddle shift via an electronic differential. the stopping department is taken care by huge 397 mm ventilated ceramic discs with six-piston calipers upfront and 380 mm ventilated ceramic discs with four-piston calipers at the rear. providing the tractions are 19-inches (front) and 20-inches (rear) Koenigsegg forged Vortex generating aluminum wheels wrapped in 265/35-19 and 345/30-20 Michelin Supersport rubbers, respectively.
