Swedish made Koenigsegg, one of the fastest and most exclusive cars was unveiled to 200 VIPs and guests at a private launch event at the Ritz Carlton Millenia hoteln in Singapore on June 14.

Hand-crafted by skilled artisans in Sweden, the Agera S model is the first Koenigsegg to zoom into Singapore. It was introduced to the global market in 2012.

The hypercar was unveiled by Motorway Group of Companies, a pre-owned luxury specialist and rental car company. Motorway also announced its appointment as the official distributor of Koenigsegg brand of hypercars during the unveiling of the Agera.

In a statement to the media, Motorway revealed that the Agera S, designed with enhanced aerodynamics, has an incredible top speed of over 400 km/h. It runs on regular petrol and comes with a newly developed 1,040 horse power twin turbo engine.

Present to grace the event is the founder of Koenigsegg Automotive AB, Christian von Koenigsegg.

Michael Lim, Chief Executive Officer of Motorway, said:

“We are deeply honored to be the first in Singapore to present the Koenigsegg to the market. It was not an easy task to secure the production and transportation of the car. It took us more than a year to do so. Being appointed by Koenigsegg to represent them in Singapore is a perfect gift for Motorway as we celebrate our 21st year of establishment this month.”

Christian von Koenigsegg said:

“It is with great pleasure that we launch the first Koenigsegg in Singapore today. Today’s launch means a lot to us as Koenigsegg has evolved from being a small and unknown car developer, to becoming a household name, revered for excellence and performance – competing head to head with the strongest brands in the industry.”

    Super car in Singapore ? – with strict speed limits and few roads ?
    Yes, you can keep it is the garage and idle around just to show off, but what a waste.
    Here is the solution, buy a Prius or Smart CDI that does 3 liter per 100 km for Singapore, and then buy a race car and go racing at Sepang. Makes better sense.
