    Now that I've seen the car on this Youtube video with zoom in and what not, I'd say it has grown on me, despite the color which looked odd at first sight. Do want for sure, especially with the carbon fiber hood at the front.

    Now I'm wondering when we can get to see all of the new 2013 updates all together in one car (i.e. not only the front winglets, Ohlins dampers and the CF bonnet, but also the new exhaust and the Aircore, which, hitherto, have not been seen before...

    I like both TBH, didn't like the Aircore at all in the beginning, but then it grew on me as well...Looks cutting edge...

    Btw, wonder where this one is destined to go, don't think it is for somebody in Sweden to be honest (although it could as well be, as this was filmed during the Lergokarallyt Event this weekend)

    Not likely Sweden, we are a very modest people and its not polite to show that you have a lot of money, "the law of jante". We did have a Koenigsegg owner a few years ago ( Stefan Bengtsson, nephew to Stefan Persson and one of the biggest shareholders in H&M ) but his ( black CCX ) is now for sale at Autoropa together with a blue one (Autoropa - Ferrari - Maserati - Bentley - Land Rover - Range Rover), and has been for two years now. And i almost forgot the original CCR Evo wich were driven around in my neighbourhood acctually by an old client of mine... so two is more correct. We have/had one collector in Sweden but i think he is in some sort of trouble with the swedish "IRS", so he´s not likely either ( his car collection during 1998 - 05 was one of the most impressive i have ever seen including THREE McLaren F1´s... ).

    Getting back to the exhaust discussion, the exhaust here might well be the new exhaust.

    Now, we know that the matte blue Agera R has the new exahust, and here is how it looks from the back...

    So it's not like the exahust in the video looks very different from this afterall right? (Of course, you can tell the difference once you're closer)


    Am I right or am I just going blind? Joey, we need your forensic skills here

    Well to me it looks like the Agera in the video still has the old exhaust. Look at these pictures and compare them.




    The geneva show car has a much more prominent "ledge" at the top of the exhaust frame, which the one in the video hasn't. Also, the interior of the exhaust is a different color to that of the frame surrounding it. This looks much like the old exhausts as they are made from two parts, the frame and the pipe". The new one on the other hand seems to be one single block and therefore has so color difference.

    What do you guys think?

    Just one more thing, is it me, or did they change the exhaust of the Geneva car prior to delivery to customer?
    I mean, take a look at the picture I posted above (Same car with the old exhaust at a gathering in Shanghai, clear color difference) and the one Apex posted.

    See what I mean?
    This pic is a bit better:

    But yes, absolutely!

    I hadn't noticed that before. Maybe they have had problems with the new design and chose to change it back to the old one. Good spot though!
