    I would bet this is just a photo of the matte blue having some work done or being built. He also posted pics of a gold Agera being built which most likely was the Hundra. I'm figuring these are some old photos he is just now putting online.

    Timeline seems ok when considering the progress of the light blue one.

    That's what I noticed. Matte blue was completed as far as the build goes and the Hundra was just starting paint. Sorry, no new matte blue and I wouldn't want to see another matte blue. I'd like to see matte red now.

    I do actually belive there is a new matte blue on the way, baby blue is in front on the production line. These are fairly new photos, i think

    And from the looks of it will be yet another RHD (take a close look at the 2nd picture)

    I checked Speedhunters because I was curious. I found this pic, shows the Baby Blue Agera being built the same time as the Hundra. In my experience, by the time Speedhunters has it everyone else does. No new Matte Blue. If you read that page as well, the day Speedhunters visited was a long time ago, they went when the purple Agera was being given to its owner.

    Where do you se the hundra being built? Also the other matte blue was shown at geneva 2012 so it must have been built fall/winter 2011/2012, why would it be on the line there. Also the last thing, since the baby blue and this white with blue stripes is unseen before, they cannot have left the factory yet so why again is the baby blue behind in the line, without interior etc.

    Edit: It could be there to get converted from LHD to RHD, at Genva it was LHD and on the latest picture its RHD.

    I was thinking the white and gold is the Hundra being built (that the white wasn't paint), but now that I think about it, paint would happen first. So what's the story behind the white Agera? Still, the day Speedhunters visited was the day the purple Agera was delivered. These are old pictures, the purple car has been finished for a long time. Knowing that, I don't think there is a new matte blue. Even if these pictures are just now being put online, chances are Koenigsegg makes you wait a certain amount of time before posting the photos. I still think this is the same matte blue, we are just now seeing pics of it before it was finished.

    *edit* as you noticed, I'm just now noticing the difference. LHD to RHD. Could be a conversion. I just don't see someone buying a copy of another Agera. If you were buying an Agera, would you copy what someone else did to theirs? Rich people like to be different, I don't see someone ordering an Agera being a copy cat.

    good chance it is a new car altogether, as they wouldn't remove the engine cover completely just for an LHD/RHD conversion
