Christian von Koenigsegg has once again created a hypercar of the highest order – the new Agera R. The 5 litre V8 bi-turbo engine is the lightest and most compact hypercar engine in the world, produces 1100 hp and with top speed which is quoted as 390+ km/h (245+ mph).
It’s most notable feature though, is a Thule Roof Box which ensures you can take all your gear as well as having a show car with the standard roof when you get there.
The biggest problem with hypercars though, is that they simply don’t have enough extra room for a toothbrush, and hence Koenigsegg decided that a roof box was in order. Not your normal roof box, but a super light weight Lightning Roof Box from Thule made from carbon fiber tested to ensure it is safe up to 300 km/h.
The ingenious part is that the box incorporates a roof panel and can be easily fitted in 10 minutes while the standard roof is stored in the front luggage area. At destination, simply unbolt the lot and wheel it to your hotel room, while replacing the normal roof.
