The Koenigsegg Agera R features a more powerful version of the 5.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 found in previous years' editions. Using E85 biofuel, the aluminum-titanium-carbon fiber built engine can put out 1,140hp, while with regular unleaded fuel output is measured at 960hp (up from the previous year's 940hp rating). The engine improvements come thanks to a revamp of the Agera R's ECU and a higher rev limit of 7,500rpm. The Swedish supercar is purported to reach a top speed of 273mph and manage 0-62mph in 2.9 seconds.
