The Agera is powered by an in-house developed 5. 0-litre V8 engine based on the Ford modular engine block and fitted with twin-turbochargers which generates a maximum power output of 960 PS (947 hp; 706 kW) at 6,900 rpm and 1,100 N⋅m (811 lbf⋅ft) of torque at 4,000 rpm. The total weight of the engine is only 197 kg (434 lb) due to a carbon fibre inlet manifold and aluminium construction. The transmission is a specially developed 7-speed dual-clutch with paddle shifters. It is the first dual-clutch transmission to feature only one input shaft. The second clutch slows down the input shaft during up shifts in order to reduce the time it takes to synchronise the next gear, resulting in faster shift times. Most notably, the transmission weighs only 81 kg (179 lb).
