#105 could legally be sold in the U.S., as long as it was still on open MSO, and had a compliant airbag installed (which we all know Koenigsegg is working on).

It's very interesting that the car carries a 2013 VIN when at least three cars in sequence before it are 2014's. By the time #105 was built, Koenigsegg's airbag exemption had long since expired. But that wouldn't matter to a car with a compliant airbag. The Agera was certified for the U.S. for MY2013. I believe the car was deliberately VIN'ed as a 2013 in order to try to sell it in the U.S. If the sale was made the car would have the compliant airbag system retrofitted into it and only after that would the sale be finalized. It would have been perfectly legal as long as the car was still new.

I actually wrote a very thorough piece speculating that that was exactly what was going on, why we had not seen the car in a while. I posted it on the Registry website and everything, only to remember the car had already been sold. So I had to delete it!

#105 could have joined #099 in the U.S., before the new cars arrive. But unfortunately it cannot be imported to the U.S. anymore because it is a previously titled, non-U.S. market car now.
