Koenigsegg Agera R BLT Built Bespoke Then Impounded

A Chinese man commissioned a bespoke version of the wickedly fast Agera R to be built. The car features a slick blue tinted carbon fiber paint scheme, along with red pin striping. Inside, the Koenigsegg Agera R BLT is filled with blue cow’s hide mixed with black and white diamond inserts.

Other than the addition of a lighter exhaust system and some lighter, but otherwise identical front fascia, the Koenigsegg Agera R BLT is fitted with the same kit found in the standard (if you can call it that) Agera R. It produces 960 hp on 93 octane fuel, and over 1400 hp on E85.

For what ever reason Koenigsegg has not said what “BLT” means, other than that “BLT obviously means something completely different in Chinese, than what we are use to.” Some have reported that BLT refers to Koenigsegg’s bespoke division, but based on this press release, it seems more likely that BLT is an abbreviation chosen by the buyer.

Unfortunately, the lucky owner of this tailor made Koenigsegg worth well over $2-million tried to dodge the Chinese feds, and attempted to smuggle the car into China as a way of getting around a hefty tax for importing a luxury car. The government caught wind of the owner’s plan, and has since impounded the car. There’s been no word as to whether the car has been released to its owner – all we can hope for is that the feds keep it garaged.
