Following its unveiling at this year's Geneva Motor Show, Koenigsegg has spilled the mean beans on its new hero car, the Agera R.

Power for the Agera R is provided by a twin-turbo 5.0 litre V8 engine producing 830kW and 1200Nm of torque on E85 bio-ethanol, sending motivation to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

All of this brings the 0-100km/h pass in just 2.9 seconds. The 0-200km/h run is gone in 7.5 seconds, and top speed is listed at "more than" 390km/h.

It's not just the drivetrain helping the Swedish supercar to its high-speed runs: thanks to its aerodynamic carbon-Kevlar body and the turbine wheel design, the Agera R produces 300kg of downforce when it's moving at 250km/h.

It's hardly a stripped-out speed-oriented warrior either, with the interior offering leather upholstery, power windows, GPS navigation and an audio system that includes iPod and USB connectivity.

The options list adds heated seats, four-point racing harnesses, a rear view camera and an unpainted carbon-fibre body.

Pricing has yet to be revealed, but expect a European-market sticker price upwards of one million euros.
