If you Europeans had a little car envy, Koenigsegg has something for you too: meet the Koenigsegg Agera RS ‘Naraya’, the first RS headed to Europe.
The name is associated with the owner’s family, and the car seems to feature a personalization scheme that’s just as original. The clear blue carbon finish across the RS’s flanks carry over the carbon fiber tub – the first time a Koenigsegg tub matches the exterior. And of course, the gold trim highlighting the supercar is impossible to ignore.
The exterior is sleek and modern, with even more personal touches as you truly take the car in. Gold leaf highlights, done by hand courtesy of Ettore ‘Blaster’ Callegaro, a renowned Italian craftsman, adorn the car for an inimitable appearance. You know this is the pinnacle of car craftsmanship, as even these details were painstaking: it took Ettore, working out of Koenigsegg’s factory in Sweden, two weeks, working 12-hour days, six days a week to complete the designs.
The appearance is jaw-dropping, but everyone has to be curious about what lies beneath the stylish frame. The RS’s heart comes in the shape of a twin-turbo V8 that drops a meaty 1160bhp and 944lb ft of torque. Koenigsegg’s e-diff makes an appearance too, the company’s own traction and stability control system.
If you’re sold on this exclusive car and want to see it in the flesh, it’ll be on display at the Salon Privé supercar show at Blenheim Palace later this week. It won’t be the only Koenigsegg there either, with supercar cousins One:1 and the last ever Agera R joining the newest member of the family.
