As we had reported earlier, Koenigsegg Agera, the Swedish supercar from Koenigsegg has been introduced in India with a sticker price of Rs 12.5 crore.
Koenigsegg Agera is sold in India through Interglobe General Aviation‘s assistance, the company behind Indigo Airlines, a low-cost domestic operator. The cars would be sold directly to high networth individuals without any dealership network.
The sticker price of the Agera is a cool Rs 2 crore more than what we had earlier speculated.
“We will not set up dealerships but will sell these cars directly to owners that would be determined through our own database. We are dealing in a host of luxury products and would be retailing them directly to customers with complete service backup,” Nigel A Harwood, President & CEO of Interglobe Established Products, said. He, however, refused to confirm any sales projections for the car in India.
The Agera, with 5-litre bi-turbo V8 engine, boasts of a pulsating 1115 horsepower, gains 100 km/hr speed in just 2.9 second can go past 400 km/h in just 3 seconds. Koenigsegg had earlier produced the CCR model that broke the nine-year-old Guinness World Record of the McLaren – Bugatti in 2005. Keeping the same lineage alive, Koenigsegg churns our limited set of around 16-18 cars every year out of its single manufacturing facility in Sweden. It tunes every car specifically for any particular country, after carefully studying the quality of fuel on offer in local conditions. For example, to meet the needs of its customers in Brazil, the company has developed a bio-fuel run Agera R model specific to that market.
In addition to Koenigsegg, there is a range of other high-end brands Interglobe plans to launch in the Indian market. Other super cars like the Gumpert Apollo along with Nostalgia’s that are basically Jaguar replicas and the Deronda race cars would also be available though direct sales channels.
