Is this 1,360-hp supercar cursed?
Almost exactly a year after a rare $1.5 million-plus Koenigsegg [

Swedish outlet Teknikens Varld reports [

rural area near the National Electric Vehicle Sweden (NEVS) headquarters
where Koenigsegg test-drives its cars. It confirms it's the same vehicle

According to The Drive [
], it's an Agera RS Gryphon, an all-carbon fiber, 3,075-pound beast with
24-karat gold leaf trim that does a ridiculous 1,360 horsepower and 1,011
pound-feet of torque [
]. It was originally built for U.S. car collector Manny Khoshbin before it

factory test and demonstration car.
It's not clear what caused the most recent crash. The reader who submitted
the photo said it was clear from skid marks the car had been on both sides
of the road. It also wasn't clear whether the driver suffered any injuries.
Teknikens Varld says it's believed to be the first time the repaired car had
been driven in the open since the 2017 crash.
The Agera RS is the world's fastest production car [
