Don't mind J_C, he'll probably know the order details of your car before YOU do. He's scary good.

RS #125 should be clear carbon or black with red accents so this spec may not be unique. Haven't seen any footage of that car since the Shmee video though. Regardless of what you choose I'm sure it will be spectacular. Great to hear of ANOTHER RS coming to North America, I think that's at least 6 or 7 now. And seemingly being bought buy guys with big social media presence, which is huge plus for us enthusiasts.

Can't wait to see what is to come.

#125 is painted black and has only a few clear coated/raw carbon fibre pieces, but it's indeed got red accents!

Thanks guys. The main goal is definitely to do a custom car. In my mind just having red accents doesn't make our cars the same. I definitely want to do red in my build but like I mentioned I was hoping to do a dry carbon body, not sure if I even seen that yet on an RS. Let alone red dry carbon body panels with touches of gloss carbon and gloss metallic red.

I also have an idea to pitch to the Koenigsegg team about the car next week and pray to god they say yes as it will definitely make it unique from the rest. As I plan on adding the Regera as the stable mate to the RS I am hoping they will do something for me to make it a little more unique.

Obviously I will have a lot more to share and show next week when I get back from Sweden.

I'm sure they will, many cars have very unique options already, like #127 getting leaf gold accents, tinted monocoque etc.. No Koenigsegg ever has had an all dry carbon body, only some cars with matte paint has the dry carbon. If you want any inspiration for your spec, heres the registry page with every single Koenigsegg every built!

Is there an estimated delivery time/year?

The first RS (#115) was delivered a year ago (May 2015), number five and six (#118 & #122) was delivered recently.. RS #23 seems to be years and years away? Even if the pace is geared up, is over 20 cars away (including a few Regeras and maybe another Agera final for next Geneva?)..

Spent all day today at the factory with Christian and the crew. It was my birthday today so they hung the Canadian flag and had a birthday cake. I cannot say enough about those warm and welcoming people... Im blown away.

Some info on my car, number 23/25. Car number/chassis (7)147. Delivery August 2017. Beginning production Jan/Feb. One of three RS cars that will be model year 2018.

I found out why I have not seen a full body in matte carbon... It will not last long after road trips and car washes as the matte would just get damaged and not look the same. Too bad...

I have taken alot of input from Lisa and Tariq, along with of course Christian so that me and Lisa can come up with some crazy plans/ideas for my build that will be unique from the rest!

I saw alot of RS's in production and there were some really cool ones. Privacy dictates that you do not take pictures of customer cars still in production or at the factory so Im sorry I cannot share anything there but alot of cool things going on!

Went in the One:1 with Robert and that experience alone on their test track was worth the trip... Just epic! My buddy Zach Brehl will be editing the pictures and I will post them up here for you guys to enjoy!

I will be posting there alot in regards with this car.

Cheers guys

If you still want matte carbon could you not just put a clear matte wrap over the carbon? I've seen it done before with very good results on a silver 991 GT3 and also Salomondrin's Huayra. Also thank you for sharing the story of your car with us!
