The one-off Koenigsegg Agera RS Gryphon has been crashed and damaged for the second time in 12 months.
The all-carbon Gryphon was unveiled to the world at 2017’s Geneva Motor Show and commissioned by U.S. car collector Manny Khoshbin. However, during pre-delivery tests carried out on May 11, 2017, the Swedish hypercar was destroyed and Khoshbin was offered a replacement. The Gryphon would be repaired and used as a test mule by the automaker.
Sadly, the car has taken an unwanted journey off-road in Trollhattan, Sweden, very near the facilities of electric automaker NEVS. While only a single image of the hypercar has been published by Teknikensvarld, damage appears extensive.
In a cruel twist of fate, local media claims that this was the first time the Gryphon had been testing in public since the first crash 12 months ago.
It remains to be seen if Koenigsegg was testing any new components with the car but its rear wing does appear to have been removed. Fortunately, neither the driver or passenger suffered any injuries.
As mentioned, the Gryphon is a factory car so if there’s anything good to come out of this crash, it’s the fact that the car isn’t owned by a Koenigsegg customer. Repairing it for the second time in 12 months will certainly be an annoyance for the brand, however.
