The Koenigsegg Agera RS is not the fastest car in the world but it is surely the fastest selling model the Swedish automaker has ever produced. The company officially announced that the Agera RS is now officially sold out.

It has taken just under 10 months for Koenigsegg to sell all 25 planned examples of the Agera RS. Its appearance at the Geneva motor show in 2015 was a complete surprise but its success within the hypercar collecting fraternity should be expected. Take note though that Koenigsegg has not completed delivery of all 25 cars and that 10 were sold even before the public launch.

According to Autoblog, which cites and publishes the entire press release verbatim, most of the 25 units sold are destined for Asia, with at least one going to the US (and one to Canada). So, if you live in a nice metropolitan area like Singapore, keep your eyes peeled for it (we certainly will be on the lookout). Saudi Arabia, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, China, Japan, Taiwan and Malaysia also reportedly have Ageras coming their way.

With a 5-liter twin turbo V8, 1,160bhp on tap, 423 horses, a conservatively estimated 0-100km/h time of just 2.9 seconds and a removable hard top for wind-in-the-hair motoring, there is not much that can compare in terms of rarity or performance, according to the manufacturer.

“The RS is a classic Koenigsegg, with all the core values and features that the Koenigsegg brand stands for,” said company founder, chief engineer and CEO, Christian von Koenigsegg. “The performance, road feel and responsiveness are truly amazing and the level of technical sophistication is second to none. It is a true ‘pinnacle’ project that has been wholly embraced by our customers and friends.”
