Nobody was injured and no permanent damage to the car was suffered.
You’ve waited years for your dream car. Agonized over the color scheme and wheel design. Endless nights have been spent dreaming of the day your $2 million hypercar will be delivered. And then this happens. According to Koenigsegg’s official website, this sorry-looking Agera S was undergoing shakedown testing at a wet track in Trollhattan, Sweden, when the driver lost control. While the body work obviously took a beating, Koenigsegg confirmed that “there does not appear to be any structural damage, nor has any technical fault been found.”
More importantly the occupants were uninjured in the accident. “The driver and passenger were both assessed at a local hospital and released shortly thereafter.” At first glance we could have sworn this was the bespoke Agera RS “Gryphon” that graced the Koenigsegg stand at the Geneva Motor Show in March. Despite sharing a similar gold-accented black body, upon closer inspection there are noticeable differences, such as the wheel design and the location of the gold accents. Koenigsegg revealed the car was being tested “at facilities owned by National Electric Vehicle Sweden (NEVS).
“Koenigsegg is using NEVS facilities for testing, test driving and to prepare its cars for the US market, in parallel with its own testing facilities in Angelholm.” That suggests the car was on its way to a US customer, who will doubtless wake up today a lot sorrier than he went to bed. Hopefully it won’t take too long to restore the Segg back to full health.
