The new Agera RS Gryphon is named after its mythical namesake, a creature with the body and rear legs of a lion and the head, wings and front talons of an eagle, and is a bespoke iteration of the iconic Koenigsegg Agera RS.
The Agera RS Gryphon will be presented in clear carbon with highlights finished in 24-carat gold leaf. Gold leaf has been used for all external striping and badging, as well as the hood struts, engine badging and interior highlights. A matching custom-made race helmet in carbon fibre has also received decoration in gold leaf, applied at the Koenigsegg factory in Ängelholm by Italian master craftsman, Ettore ‘Blaster’ Callegaro.
The Gryphon interior is a combination of black alcantara, polished carbon fibre and black anodised aluminium. The seats are finished in black alcantara with gold piping and a bespoke Gryphon motif embossed on the head rest, with a customised ‘Gryphon’ text has been stitched into the alcantara dashboard in gold thread. The Koenigsegg central command centre has been prepared in optional black anodised aluminium, which with its near-invisible nano-drilled symbols in the command buttons, offers the ultimate in stealth (dis)appearance.
The Agera RS Gryphon has been ordered with the optional 1MW engine, taking Koenigsegg’s V8 twin-turbocharged engine to a staggering 1,341bhp. With a curb weight, including fluids, of just 1,395kg, the Agera RS Gryphon is within a hair of the magical 1:1 power to weight ratio, previously only achieved by the Koenigsegg One:1 - truly rarified air.
