Koenigsegg Rebuilt The Agera RS Gryphon after 2 Crashes, Now Spotted In The Wild

"Hooray" and "Yay" don't cover the feeling of elation an aficionado experiences when coming across the born-again-twice Koenigsegg Agera RS Gryphone, no matter how many exclamation marks are placed after them.

So while I'm struggling to figure out how Koenigsegg spotter Christoffer F. reacted when recently coming across the freshly rebuilt hypercar, the photog did his thing, as you can notice in the image we have here.

For the record, the man has spotted a total of 80 Eggs to date, but let's return to the Agera RS Gryphon, shall we?

The one-off was ordered by Iranian-born millionaire Manny Khoshbin (you might know the aficioando thanks to his Insta account), with this having been introduced at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

Mixing a meaty 1,360 horsepower with a scale footprint ot 1,390 kilos, the machine came close to the power-to-weight ratio of the infamous One:1.

However, onlike the latter, the Agera RS Gryphon came with a removable roof, while the lavish side of the affair was covered by 24-karat gold leaf details integrated nicely into the carbon build.

Sadly, as the hypercar was undergoing pre-delivery testing on the Swedish automaker's Trollhättan track, this crashed.

And, as if that hadn't been enough, the vehicle was involved in yet another accident, almost a year to the day from the one mentioned above and not far from the place where the 2017 mishap happened.

So, what happens now?


Following the 2017 accident, Koenigsegg decided to give the said collector a new car, while keeping the Agera RS Gryphon as a demo vehicle.

And now that the beast has been brought back to life for the second time, it remains to see what duties it will fulfill.

Meanwhile, you can ignore all the tape covering the vehicle, since this only serves a temporary protection role while the car undergoes factory testing.
