Extravagant Swedish supercar maker Koenigsegg is set to go toe-to-toe with Bugatti by unveiling an 1100bhp new car at the Geneva motor show that will set customers back a snifter over a million pounds.

The Agera R fails to top the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport's 1183bhp but does come out an impressive 25 percent lighter than the Volkswagen Group's behemoth.
