Although the name of the upcoming new Koenigsegg hypercar is not known as yet, it is known that it will be boasting of bespoke wheels from a tyre manufacturing major, but again the tyre brand name has not been disclosed.
As far as the teaser image of Koenigsegg hypercar is concerned, the company has teased only the rear design of the Agera RS successor, and it looks like only the outlines of the official sketch of the rear facade of the hypercar. What can be made out of the teaser image is the car’s massive wing. However, it is also known that the new upcoming Agera RS successor will be flaunting a Targa roof and the patent doors.

All we know is that it will be the world’s fastest production car and it will be aiming to hit the top speed of 482 kmph on public roads.
