Unbelievable. 1,115bhp and over 1,000Nm of torque as well as Michelin tires rated to over 400km/h and it has a Thule Ski-carrying box on its roof. This people is the Koenigsegg Agera R that will be on display at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. Built for a customer that loves skiing, this Agera R also sports the Speed Racer Mach 10 color scheme and comes with two removable carbon fiber roofs, one the standard version and one that comes with the ski-box carrier. Imagine that.

The car, the successor of the Koenigsegg CCXR, is Koenigsegg's latest effort. It is rear wheel drive and is powered by a 5.0 twin turbocharged V8 that has about 1,115bhp and was designed to try top the BUgatti Veyron's 431km/h maximum speed. However some people are realists and their Koenigsegg needs to carry their hobby stuff - like skis. Koenigsegg practically worked hand in hand to develop this roof carrier with Thule, that famous manufacturer of roof racks, boxes & bicycle carriers. This is surely one supercar that adds a dose of practicality instead of going for the full maximum acceleration or maximum speed records. Of course the Agera R still looks outrageous or is it outrageously practical?

Whatever the case, I believe that this is the second most practical supercar launched after the station wagon looking Ferrari FF. A new era of supercar beckons. One with enough space to carry a whole week of groceries? Now this is news to me.
