The 5.0L twin-turbocharged V8 engine is developed by Koenigsegg and is capable of running on either petrol or biofuel although it will produce more power with the usage of biofuel.
The body of the Agera R is not modified in any form compared to the standard Agera with the exception being a dynamic rear spoiler. Unlike many high-performance vehicles, the rear spoiler of the Agera R does not feature any hydraulics and instead uses the wind flowing over the body to alter its angle.
