Collector Manny Khoshbin has made quite the name for himself with high end luxury cars. The Koenigsegg Agera RS Gryphon which is on display at the Geneva Motor Show 2017 is expected to join his fleet which also features a 1 of 1 Pagani Huayra by Hermes, a Carbon Series McLaren P1 and a Mansory Bugatti Veyron. We took a closer look at this exquisite custom Agera RS!
The Gryphon is named after its mythical namesake, a creature with the body and rear legs of a lion and the head, wings and front talons of an eagle. It is the heraldic symbol used on the provincial flag of the ‘Skåne’ region in Sweden, where the Koenigsegg factory is located.
The car is actually quite close to the Agera S Hundra we saw a few years back. It boasts a clear carbon exterior with 24-carat gold leaf highlights. The precious material is reflected in all external striping and badging, as well as the car’s hood struts. The finish is darker than the Hundra with a darker tint applied to the carbon fibre bodywork.
Inside Alcantara blend with polished carbon fiber and black anodized aluminum. The 24-carat gold leaf reappears in the interior as well in the form of several highlights. A bespoke Gryphon motif shines on the head rests, while another image of the mystical creature is stitched into the Alcantara dashboard. Agera RS Gryphon comes with a matching racing helmet in carbon fiber and gold leaf finish, handmade by Italian master craftsman Ettore Callegaro at the Koenigsegg factory in Ängelholm.
