This one-off Koenigsegg Agera RS Gryphon will be on display at the Geneva motor show after being produced for an unnamed customer.

The model is based on the Agera RS and has the optional one-megawatt engine, a 1341bhp twin-turbocharged 5.0-litre V8. The Gryphon retains the regular car’s 1395kg dry weight, giving it a power-to-weight ratio of 1:1 when it’s converted into European horsepower.

What sets the Gryphon apart from its siblings is 24-carat-gold leaf accents, stripes and badging, which are contrasted by an exposed carbonfibre body. Inside, it has black alcantara, polished carbonfibre and black anodised aluminium, with gold piping for the seats and Gryphon badging.

The buyer has also been giving a matching carbonfibre race helmet with gold leaf decoration, applied by hand at Koenigsegg’s Ängelholm factory by Italian craftsman Ettore ‘Blaster’ Callegaro.

The Agera RS Gryphon also has a removable hardtop that can be stowed under the bonnet of the car, carbon ceramic brakes and a front/rear hydraulic lifting system.

Koenigsegg ended production of its regular Agera RS range last year, so the Gryphon could be the last ever model to be revealed. The Agera RS is the Swedish brand’s fastest selling model, with all 25 regular examples having found buyers in less than a year.

Koenigsegg One:1

Swedish hypercar is one of the fastest, most powerful and most expensive cars ever produced. So just how good is it?

I've seen a red with carbon

I've seen a red with carbon fibre accented Agera RS in Singapore. It looks and sounds awesome. Fantastic supercar.

Can't get enough of Koenigsegg.

Can't get enough of Koenigsegg. Amazing machines and I love how they seem to be able to do things that the big guys can't. Veyron+ power with 488 weight. Incredible.
