The Thai car enthusiast has already shared multiple teaser pics of the Naraya (apparently, the designation is linked to his family and you can also find it on the motorsport crew's machines) on his Instagram account. And with the build process having taken 18 months, it's not difficult to understand why.
By the way, this is also a good occasion to understand how things work inside the Swedish carmaker's Angelholm factory - the company is currently also rebuilding the crashed One:1 for a new Nurburgring record attempt and taking further car of the 1,500 hp Regera hybrid's market introduction, among others.
We're talking about the first Agera RS delivered in Europe (the hypercar will be displayed at Britain's upcoming Salon Prive high-octane event), so we can consider it the Old Continent equivalent of the US-delivered Agera XS. You know, the RS whose name spells just what you think it does and went to Lamborghini Veneno owner Kris Singh.
The gold leaf was actually applied by Ettore ‘Blaster’ Callegaro, an Italian craftsman who's famous for his custom cars and bikes efforts. Koenigsegg brought the man in, with the specialist spending two weeks on the job. 72-hour work weeks, that is.
Curious about the details of the process? No problem, the K people were kind enough to go into the details: "The leaf is applied to the glued surface of the part/panel and once secure, it is ‘turned’ by hand using a small tool the size of a champagne cork. The gold leaf is then finished with multiple coats of clear, along with the rest of the body, to protect it from scratching,"
And the lavish play doesn't end here. The Naraya's Blue carbon body comes with a just-as-Blue carbon fiber tub chassis, a first for the automaker, while the gold found inside and outside the machine is accompanied by 155 cultured diamonds coming from California's Ada Diamonds.
You shouldn't fret, though - all the glitter in the world couldn't outshine the performance of the Naraya. Not on the 1,160 hp twin-turbo V8's watch. So you can enjoy these pics without the slightest trace of guilt.
A huge thank you to all the people at this wonderful company for making a dream become reality. 1 and a half year in the making. Not too long now! • • #koenigsegg #agera #rs #agerars #family #dream #blessed #bluecarbon #gold #carbon #carlover #hypercar
