First U.S. bound Koenigsegg Agera to be delivered in June, company working on cam less engine

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.
