Koenigsegg will have more than 4000 hp on display in Geneva

Koenigsegg has opted to use a Direct Drive system to keep weight down-no gears here, people-that's able to bring the auto up to a reported top speed of 250 miles per hour.

The hypercar, which has the full name Koenigsegg Agera RS Gryphon, was specially produced for an unnamed customer.

One of the Regeras has a stunning green carbon fiber exterior that Koenigsegg says is reminiscent of the famed British Racing Green. Its interior features saddle brown-colored leather that covers the steering wheel, seats, doors, and stretches over the dashboard and rear wall.

The Koenigsegg Regera is most likely going to be a bespoke series of 80 units - we've seen the capabilities of the in-house workforce at tailoring the model. This auto will also ride on Koenigsegg's newest wheels-called Tresex, these carbon fiber, hollow-core units apparently save 40% of wheel mass compared to a lightweight alloy wheel that's the same size.

The second Regera has a catchy apple red exterior with a clear carbon fiber centerpiece and a matching red hood stripe - matched with exposed carbon side air intakes and a black leather with highlights of Lingonberry for the interior.

The Agera RS Gryphon will make its global debut at the Geneva motor show, before being handed over to its owner.

As its name implies, the sports vehicle was inspired by the Gryphon, a mythical creature with the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle, as it is known for its strength and speed. The gryphon was revered for its depiction of both strength and speed, and is the heraldic symbol used on the provincial flag in Skåne, where the Koenigsegg factory is located.

To ensure the gold has the optimal contrasting effect, the car's body has been left in naked, albeit clear-coated carbon fiber so that the Gryphon's structural integrity is presented as art as well as science.

And, even with the gold leaf, luxuriously appointed interior, full infotainment system and hydraulics for raising either the front or rear end for overcoming things like speed bumps, this auto tips the scales at 1,395kg.

It is based on the Agera RS which regular customers (with a lot of money of course) can buy, and includes Koenigsegg's optional one-megawatt engine - a 5.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 with 1,341bhp in total.

Inside, the Agera RS Gryphon is upholstered in black Alcantara with gold piping.
