The same goes for the exterior design. This is not a wind tunnel soap bar pared clean and bland in the pursuit of aerodynamic efficiency. This is a big sweary swagger of a car. Low and wide, the basic slipperiness of the standard Agera is overwhelmed first by the R's rear wing, complete with a mechanical damping arrangement that allows for dynamic deformation at speed, as well as the other slight visual tweak; the ruddy great big roof box bolted to the top. Yes, that'll be a 250+mph capable supercar with a Thule roof box. It's been smoothed by the engineers at Koenigsegg to be slightly more aerodynamic, but it's still bloody odd. And brilliant. Utterly brilliant.
