We Drive the Koenigsegg Agera. (w/Video)

The 910 horsepower, 250+ mph Swede demon—driven on camera.

Quick—what has two thumbs and an exclusive first drive of the new Koenigsegg Agera? (Thumb-points to self) This mag.

Okay, we have more than two opposable digits between us here at the office—but we certainly drove Koenigsegg's new super car, the 900+ horsepower, 250-or-so mile-per-hour Agera. Our own Matt Tuccillo shoehorned himself into a coach-class seat and flew over to Sweden to test the limits of the car's traction (and his sanity) on an empty runway in the wet...and scored some video in the process. (Kudos to those of you who correctly identified the unidentified flying object in our teaser video.)

Check out the full video of our close encounter of the kickass kind below, then head to your local drug store/book store/supermarket and pick up the Winter 2011 issue of 0-60 for the whole story. It's easy to spot—it'll presumably be the only magazine with a Koenigsegg Agera on the cover. (And it'll say "0-60" in big block print, too.)

      It hasn't been a modular Ford for a long time now. Your back ten years in the past man, get your facts straight!

    @Wes Duenkel: Not any more, Koenigsegg now build their own engine. OT: Technical masterpiece, but in this specification rather ugly. Still prefer the original. (and whats with the cheap looking LED lights?)

    I have purchased 80% of the 0-60 magazines at the news stands around me for the past 3 years. You will surely be missed.
