Before the SCC Tuatara arrived with its controversial top-speed run, the Koenigsegg Agera RS held the title of the world’s fastest production car. As you might imagine, Koenigsegg builds these cars in tiny quantities, fewer than 50 per year. As a result, when one of these record-breaking hypercars comes up for sale, it’s truly a big deal.
According to Pagani Beverly Hills, this particular car is no ordinary RS. In fact, serial supercar-collector Manny Khoshbin commissioned the car, calling it “Phoenix.” Unfortunately, the for-sale listing doesn’t have a price on display. However, this car’s history gives us a clue of its current value.
How much is a Koenigsegg Agera RS?
According to CNBC, the Koenigsegg Agera RS debuted back in 2015, with a planned run of only 25 production cars. Of this run, each car commanded a base price of $2.5 million, with all 25 examples selling out in just 10 months.
In a world of limited production hypercars, the Phoenix is made extra rare thanks to its specification. According to CNBC, Manny Khoshbin spent over $1 million in options alone. These include 24-Karat gold accents throughout the car. Khohsbin told CNBC that the massive carbon fiber rear wing alone is worth around $300,000.
Under the Koenigsegg Agera RS’s hood lives a twin-turbo V8 developing 1,400 hp. This allows the hypercar to reach 60 mph in 2.9 seconds and 249 mph in 33.29 seconds, says Motor1.
Retired race car driver Justin Bell reportedly told CNBC that he expects this car to go up in value significantly over the next 15 years. It’s time to find out because this car is officially for sale.
How much will this car sell for?
Six months after the arrival of Manny Khoshbin’s Koenigsegg Agera RS, he decided to sell it. Keep in mind; this is after he waited over two years for the car to arrive in the first place. CNBC caught up with the collector after the sale to gather some important details.
According to CNBC, Khoshbin backtracked on his original $3 million+ purchase price, stating he actually paid $2.2 million for the car. After six months of ownership, he flipped it for $4.1 million, making him $1.9 million in the process.
The car now goes up for sale again, this time by Pagani of Beverly Hills. Unfortunately, there is no price on the official listing. As a result, we can only go by its last known selling price of $4.2 million. Since these cars don’t sell very often, a major public sale could directly affect the value of all 25 cars.
How fast can the Koenigsegg Agera RS go?
As mentioned earlier, the Koenigsegg Agera RS held the title of the world’s fastest car for quite some time. The hypercar set the record back in 2017 with a recorded two-way average of 277.87 mph. Despite this, the Pheonix reportedly has a hypothetical top speed of 284 mph. Only time will tell if this ultra-rare machine will continue to rise in value over the years.
