Guy on Instagram confirmed photo was taken in SoCal.You beat me to it, Will! A little birdie told me today that the car was now happily registered here in the U.S. A long road for sure, but glad to finally have it with us!
If I get word the car will be in a certain place at a certain time I may have to make the 5 hour trip to see it.It's going to be a hard struggle! Who is going to see the HH first? Matt seemed to have the edge, but Will has the overhand now! Who is it going to be!??! :^)
It has been pretty brutal here, below zero each of the last four mornings, -14 on Monday. But I'm sure the folks in Alaska are laughing their asses off at us! The media is making such a big deal of the below zero temps. Alaskans spend their entire winter in that realm!That said, I talked to the guy who spotted it and he said it has Illinois plates, so maybe it'll spend time there too. That or he will keep it in California, the 70 degree weather here is a lot nicer than the 0 in Chicago lol.
Very true. I'm told that CARB approval is expected soon, but my guess is the owner simply didn't want to wait!Much easier to get Illinois plates than California ones.
Koenigsegg had as you may know, an exemption for the CCX for smart airbags among other stuff for 14 cars made between 2008-2012. 12 CCX/Rs was sold to the states, meaning that the exemption had space for an additional 2 cars. #092 and #099 is MY2012 meaning that they were able to go under the CCX exemption.Someone can correct me if I am wrong but I seem to recall Janus suggesting they only had a limited number of chassis that were built within a period that would allow them to wave certain US Federal Requirements. If that is still accurate it is going to limit any buying spree here in North America.
