Yesterday, we showed you the ins and outs of the Koenigsegg Agera S "Hypercar." Everything about it is impressive, including its $1.46 million (starting) price tag. (Some models sell in excess of $4 million.)
Here are the highlights from yesterday's article:
It will take you from 0-62 mph in under three seconds
Its 5.0-liter V-8 engine peaks at 1,030 hp and 811 lb-ft of torque
It has a max lateral acceleration of 1.6 g's
Its braking package enables it to decelerate from 62 down to zero in just 100 ft.
Its wheels employ hollow spokes and centers made out of carbon fiber. The wheel's only metal part is the check valve.
Fasten your seatbelt -- today we will show you what this car can really do! (Stay tuned; we promise you won't be disappointed!)
IF... you drive this car at the track regularly.. at anything approaching 1.6g side load spec.. It will be lucky to get 500 miles on a set of tires. The oil will still last 3,000-7,000 miles. And the tires will cost more than $500 each.
Oil changes? are still likely to cost more than $1000 each time (5-60w, premium stuff ~$280/quart last time I checked)
so.. tires are the bigger expense (if you drive the car hard).
I know .. on my sports car (modified).. 2,000 miles of life is doing good.
This car is for the guy that doesn't want to be bothered to pick up a $500 bill laying on the sidewalk.
