KOENIGSEGG AGERA XS REVIEW
Koenigsegg Agera XS is a custom-made vehicle presented at Monterey Car Week. It takes after One:1 but it offers much more than the previous model. However, XS come with standard problems for Koenigsegg. Although the Swedish automaker manufactures top-notch cars they usually don’t meet all emission and safety standards. Apparently, XS will be street-legal in the U.S. since it is made for a U.S. customer but the question is whether it is going to be street-legal in neighboring countries.

It will be coupled with a seven-speed paddle shift transmission and will have an exceptional acceleration and top speed over 400 km/h.
At the first sight, XS looks identically to RS and many believe these two are actually one vehicle. However, when you take a closer look you will notice several distinctive features. Chassis is mostly orange with a black stripe on the bonnet and roof also comes in black. There are also black stripes on each side. Center stripe is actually made from carbon and there are few more things made from this material. Thanks to revised front bumper and front splitter it has an aerodynamic look. The rear wing is the largest one coming from the Swedish automaker. Everything else on the outside should resemble the RS.
On the outside, most of the features are taken after the RS. Seats are made from carbon and there are carbon touches all over the cabin. When it comes to technology, Koenigsegg Agera XS is equipped with G sensor, alarm, monitoring system, USB connectivity, Apple CarPlay and much more.
