Every frame is unique in its own way, but all frames are good quality with a very attractive price point for the quality level. These are our favorite "picks". Chakra Eyewear is available in a variety of shapes, colors, and other reminders that our bodies should always be in a state of harmony, peace, and perfection.

Koenigsegg Agera

Talk about a super way to kick off the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. Introduced to the world at large at (no surprise) 2006 Geneva Motor Show, the Swedish rocket has WOWed enthusiasts for the past five years. But that was then-and in the case of biofuled, 1,100 horsepower monster CCXR, then was a few months ago-the Agera is now.

The Performance figures of Agera are just mind boggling, Have a look at it for yourself:

1) Zero to sixty miles an hour takes 3.1 seconds. 
2) 0-124 mph happens in 13.7 seconds and the top speed is somewhere north of 245 miles per hour. 
3) The top speed might be (slightly) down from the CCXR (supposedly that beast can go faster than 250 mph) but check out the road-holding. Koenigsegg is claiming that the Agera can pull 1.6 g.
