Swedish supercar maker Koenigsegg will deliver its first Agera to the United States this June – the move comes two years after the 940-hp car was introduced to the market.
What’s taking so long? Koenigsegg is waiting on approval for a second exemption from federal regulations requiring smart airbags, the same exemption that kept Pagani waiting to sell the Huyara in the United States.
According to a report by CARandDRIVER, Koenigsegg will be showing a rendering of its 100th car at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show next month. The supercar maker will be commissioning a milestone version of its car instead of building a custom order as it usually does.
The report also says that Koenigsegg is in the process of modifying its twin-turbo V8 to run without camshafts, a move that will increase fuel-economy by 20 to 30 percent by using pneumatic-controlled valves.
