Koenigsegg re-engineers a 2017 Agera RS at the request of a customer

Posted on

Buyers ordering a Koenigsegg are encouraged to personalize their vehicle by working directly with the company to select unique paint colors and trim materials. One customer took the customization process to the next level by commissioning the company’s little-known Aftermarket division to redesign a 2017 Agera RS.

Twenty-five units of the record-breaking Agera RS were available and production ended in 2018, so it’s too late to buy a new one. Instead, an owner approached the Swedish company with a simple request: he wanted to add air vents similar to the One: 1 on the hood of his car. From there, the project escalated to a relatively long list of upgrades.

Koenigsegg explained that after adding the pair of air vents, it redesigned the carbon fiber hood and added additional winglets on either side of the front bumper. It then turned its attention to the rear of the car, where it added an air intake also inspired by the One: 1 and an updated adjustable wing controlled by the in-car software. Black paint on the logos, on the exhaust and even on the visible bolts complete the design.

Inside, the anonymous customer requested a digital instrument cluster called SmartCluster in Koenigsegg-speak. Taken from the Regera, it takes the form of a large driver-configurable screen that neatly replaces the three digital gauges and small clusters of warning lights fitted to the Agera RS when it was new.

Koenigsegg initially estimated it would take a month to implement the customer’s request for additional vents, but ultimately spent more than half a year making the aforementioned changes to the Agera RS. It didn’t stop revealing how much it charged the owner to redesign a car that cost more than $ 2.5 million when it was new.
