    Default a new, grey Agera arrived in the US?

    I posted this picture a while back of a grey Agera at the NFS Shoot.

    We assumed it was the factory car that was modified in order for the film, but the picture caused some confusion...
    However Shmee150 released some pictures on his facebook page from his factory visit a couple weeks back showing this grey Agera almost finished on the assembly line along with a gloss blue one.

    Anyone else has any information about the car?
    It is highly likely that this is a US car since it was at the shoot for the NFS movie.

    Well, it makes sense.

    If it is the US car though, it takes out the "US car wasnt ready" explanation of why Koenigsegg won't be at Pebble/Quail.

    I actually think it suits the car perfect! Not my choice, but i like it.
    I know that the owner of this 2009 CCXR is selling it to make room for an Agera R, I belive he lives in Naples, Florida so its possible that this car his heading there. Apparently he owns a few other Eggs. Only 1100 Miles on it so pretty much brand new car.
    Does anybody know any other Ageras heading for the US?

    I have no more info but to add what i previously mentioned about this car and that is that it had two different rear spoilers.. At first it was shoot with an extra high (?) "standard" Agera spoiler and then later with the new Agera air flex spoiler.

    For the record i would like to say that i never thought it was the factory test car.. :-)

    And in another thread we spoke about this blue one in production.
    Audi R8
    Porsche 997 4S

    Here is the car with the other spoiler in order for the shoot that made made me belive it was the factory car that had recived modifications in order for the film, it was shoot in Atlanta.

    I got a chance to see and sit in this car when it was here in Atlanta. Just a plain Agera with Agera R side badges and Agera S wheels, it confused me at first until I noticed that all of the badging and stitching on the inside was for the plain Agera

    Note that the blue "wings" on the seats are in different shades on the two cars, one being marine blue and the other light blue, and i'm pretty sure its not the lighting.. Also note how the new car as clear carbonfibre on the air intakes in the front, the factory one doesn't.

    It seems like one is the factory Agera that has recived an "R" update for the movie and that the other one is the new grey Agera R...
    However the rear spoiler on the car with the "regular" spoiler looks really weird, and its possible that the clotch under it is to protect the holes for the dynamic spoiler.

    However i belive that these two are different cars.

    It is possible though that the new car wasn't at the shoot, the guy who posted the pic of the car on Koenigseggboard said so, but i can't find any other pictures of the car with the dynamic spoiler, and its weird since it was at a photoshoot with alot of people taking pictures of the cars

    I'm not a member on the board so i can't ask him where he got it.

    I never saw the car you posted in person so I can't say for sure. All I saw was that one real car and 3 kit cars, which all looked decent from far away but once you got closer it was obvious that they were fake. One red with a black stripe, one identical to BC's old car, and one identical to the one I posted. A US representative for Koenigsegg was there driving the car and said it would leave the next day to go back to Sweden but the guy that took the night pic you posted said that it's still around here somewhere being kept in some garage.

    That pretty much confirms that those are two different cars though.
    Next question is, where is the new car? And where was that picture taken?

    Any member on Koenigseggboard who can ask J_C where he got it from?
