Koenigsegg had a real winner on its hands when it introduced the 2010 Agera. So much so, that a number of other models like the Agera R, Agera S, and Agera X all came to be within just a few years. Then, in 2015, we were introduced to the Agera RS, a car that is billed as the “ultimate track tool” and slots above the Agera R, but below the One:1. Through a means of improved aerodynamics and weight reduction, the RS truly became a powerful track demon. Only 25 RS examples were built, all of which sold out quickly, with the first 10 being spoken for before the car even went into production. Now, two years later, Koenigsegg is coming back to the Geneva Motor Show with a new version of the RS, but this isn’t exactly a version you want to take on the track, even if it’s more than capable. Fitted with the optional 1MW engine, and doused with healthy doses of gold flake, this baby is the definition of special editions.
But, it’s not all about the gold flake and horsepower when it comes to the Agera RS Gryphon. This thing is prepped to be fully compliant with U.S. road regulations, which means you can drive this 1,360-horsepower beast from coast to coast if you really want to. There are plenty of cabin comforts and driving aids, and the roof can even be stored under the front hood. It’s a beautiful and well-appointed special edition, so let’s dive on in and take a closer look at it, and what makes it so special.
