Let's hear some speculation about the rear bonnet? ;-) From witch car is it borrowed? Obviously not *101 and not *103 either.. Claear carbon with a silver stripe? Rear lights (station 5-6?), but no rear wing yet (one of the last things put on).

#104 is supposed to be a clear carbon car, NAZA hinted it to Mr. New York. But what is it doing on #99?

My best guess is that something happend to the rear bonnet during testing. Could be what caused the delay? The thing that doesnt support that theory is that why would they choose to test with parts from a brand new car and not some old bonnet?

Hmm... The idea of the car getting maybe rear-ended or something like that is interesting...they may be using the rear from the clear carbon #104 just to finish testing while they paint a new one? I'm not sure how long this car can be in testing though, its been sooooo long.

Maybe they don't have a ton of spare parts lying around...

I don't why they changed the rear bonnet, but i'm pretty sure its not been rear ended
It could be a scratch or something that needed to be fixed before delivery

But a scratch wouldnt be like two months to fix? And still, as i said, why risk a brand new bonnet while doing the final testing?

US legalisation was probally not finished when the car was wich is probally why they decided to pull out of Pebble Beach this year and why the car has still not been delivered. Koenigsegg learnt a lesson from the last US car i guess.
This is the first time we have seen the car with another rear bonnet.
