Build Thread : Agera RS #23/25

Hey guys,

I thought it would be cool to do a build thread on here for my Agera RS and post pictures and updates as I go through this amazing process!

I am going to the factory next Monday, the 30th and funny enough my birthday is the 31st so this will probably be the best birthday ever, lol.

I am bringing one of the best photographers I have met so that I can document this entire process. We thought of a cool idea which is to take pictures from my first visit, over to when my car is being built and down to delivery day. Than blow up the best pictures and make them into hard copy posters for a wall at my house to look back at the entire project.

I will post a lot of pics from my factory visit next week!

Since this is a once in a life time opportunity, I will make the most of it and check every option box including the 1380hp upgrade so hopefully this will turn out to be a beast of a car!

Excited to share this experience with other Ksegg enthusiasts!

Congrats!! Very interesting, and great to have a future owner here! Vill be fun to follow the process all the way from this early stage!

A few Questions..
* The car vill end up in Toronto, Canada?
* In the region of Koenigsegg #143-145?
* Do you have an idea of what color combo you want? Decided yet? I heard something about Black with a "strong" accent?

For pictures from the factory?

Haha how the hell... Do you follow me on IG? Maybe the car world is smaller than I thought. Yes Zach is my photographer. He did a great job with my Matte black Aventador Roadster you can see on his page in front of the CN Tower.

It will be a Toronto car but will spend most of the year in LA/Miami.

For the color combo I am leaning towards a Dry Carbon body, maybe in red along with gloss carbon up the middle and Gloss Metallic Red lines. Let me try and post a pic I had made.

Again this is first thought and the car may end up looking nothing like this...

Thanks tor the quick reply.
I don't have IG, but I'm stalking quite much ;^) .. and I know a few other "car stalkers", like you say the car world is smal and the Koenigsegg world is even smaller, only about 10 selling/year.. we are always on the hunt for them or traces of information about them :^)

The spec looks great (most of them do, haven't really seen someone mess it up totally).

I like a spec that's a bit different from the others, I like a car that is unique and easy to identify because of a personal spec. This one seems to be great! Making a series of 25 RSs in the same color would be boring?

Welcome and congratulations! And a huge thank you for sharing!

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!
