Koenigsegg is finally coming to town – Naza Swedish Motors will represent the Swedish supercar brand in Malaysia. According to a report by The Star, the Naza Group subsidiary has inked an agreement with Koenigsegg Automotive to distribute and market Koenigsegg cars in Malaysia as well as Indonesia.
The announcement of an official tie-up comes more than three years after a story in January 2010 intimated that Naza – which also handles Ferrari and Maserati in Malaysia – was set to become the local Koenigsegg distributor.
The report adds that Naza Swedish Motors will open its showroom and service centre sometime in the first quarter of 2014, which is also when the Koenigsegg Agera S will be introduced here. Pricing for the model reportedly starts from RM4.3 million.
The 1,415 kg Agera S is powered by a twin-turbo 5.0 litre V8 offering 1,030 hp at 7,100 rpm and 1,100 Nm of torque at 4,100 rpm, and the lump is mated to a specially-developed seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Performance specs include a 0-100 km/h sprint time of 2.9 seconds, and it’ll take 22.7 seconds for the Agera S to hit 300 km/h.
The report mentions that Koenigsegg has delivered 102 cars since the brand’s inception since 1994, and the company says it’s aiming to deliver up to 14 vehicles globally next year.
The announcement of Koenigsegg’s impending arrival follows the establishment of McLaren Kuala Lumpur, which opens its doors soon – the company recently previewed the MP4-12C ahead of its opening. Looks like there’s a healthy market for supercars here, eh?
