Anything with a Koenigsegg badge is already about as ludicrous as it gets in the world of cars, but the Agera RS ‘Naraya’ really takes the biscuit.
The Koenigsegg Agera RS Naraya was made for an unnamed customer who decided what the 1,160bhp twin-turbo V8-powered hypercar needed was gold. Lots of it, in fact, and we are not talking about the fake stuff.
Italian craftsman Ettore ‘Blaster’ Callegaro was given the job of applying the gold detailing inside and outside the car – a task that took 12 hours a day for 12 days.
Callegaro painstakingly applied the 18-carat gold leaf embellishments by hand, which are then protected by layers of clear paint to keep stone chips and other such damage at bay.
For even more bling, the Koenigsegg Agera RS Naraya has a name plate made from 155 diamonds created by California company Ada Diamonds. Its name is said to refer to the owner’s family.
The Naraya also features a clear blue carbon finish on the flanks and carbon fibre tub – apparently a first for a Koenigsegg. Regardless, it looks the business.
Not that anyone will get much of a chance to see the hypercar up close because of the 944lb/ft of torque and 200mph-plus top speed on tap. Hell, this Swedish monster goes from 0-186mph in 14 seconds.
