UP to 60%tax. A normal incom let say 50USD/year (330-350.000SEK) will be about 30-36%tax.

Justin- swedes actually get things done with tax money. Here in the US that's questionable.
Justin Johnson Jan 23, 2013
Anders, really? WTF is the US complaining about?
Ben Knorr Jan 23, 2013
This thing just oozes quality. You just know its been thoroughly engineered, tested and refined. probably the best hypercar money can buy right now.

I love the Agera!
William Downs Jan 23, 2013
At least that's what I read, car buzz says differently

The 200hrs is for everything not just polishing, and they Polish by hand not with buffers or anything, ever polished a car by hand? Takes a long time but the finish is better then with a electric buffer

This is one of my favorite car manufacturers. So much attention to detail and they get the important things right. Like being able to stow the roof in the front compartment rather than having to leave it behind.

30$ an hour? Thats sweet. We are getting well paid I Scandinavia. 100$ per hour is what I guess such a person will get per hour. The company properly charge a lot more. Remember, we pay as much as 60% in taxes.

Care*

Ask for the "raw" finish and at $30 an hour (guess) the car is discounted to $994,000
Jesse Jalapeno Jan 23, 2013
Agreed..but if you have the money to buy one in the first place, you probably don't cre

Do they say that so they can charge the customers more? I have hard time understanding the 200 hours needed to polish one car regardless how beautiful it might be.
Description: As Koenigsegg himself explains, buyers have the option to show off these sections of the Agera R's carbon fiber body via a transparent clear coat or a tinted clear coat along with contrasting str...

If you payed attention he said about 1 to 1.5 kilos and one kilo is 2.2lbs so do the math lol

The polishing takes 200 HOURS?!?! Well, Christian, I'd say your OCD has been put to good use.
Jason Johnson Jan 25, 2013
Wow.

1 gallon of water weighs 8.34 lbs I looked it up.
Serge Pankratov Jan 24, 2013
I thought 1 gallon of water is 7lbs..??
Nick Schnee Jan 24, 2013
That's because K-seggs look awesome in those colours.
Jack Howard Jan 23, 2013
Tweedle-Dum...
Nick Jones Jan 23, 2013
I alway hear that the customer can choose any color they want but I always see the same colors
Ryan Faber Jan 23, 2013
think about picking up a 1 gallon bucket filled with clear coat and then an empty bucket. I read somewhere that 1 gallon of water weighs 10 lbs. I can only imagine clear has to be heavier because of its density.
Serge Pankratov Jan 23, 2013
Lol at the MAACO comment. On the other hand, how much weight does clearcoat add?? 4lbs max??
Tho MA Jan 23, 2013
For a million it better be tedious. If you want a half ass paint job go to Maaco
Brendan Bell Jan 23, 2013
Way too tedious for me
Scott Westphall Jan 24, 2013
Yes please... I'll take two.
Jacob Burford Jan 23, 2013
This car is gorgeous! I love it!
Trent Fiala Jan 23, 2013
I love those rims! There so badass looking
Justin Routh Jan 24, 2013
The Venom IS based off a lotus chassis you know... Its hard to say this but id put my money on the venom
William Downs Jan 24, 2013
U know this for a fact Skyler? Cause at the moment the venom has been seen killing it on a track, but Agera we still haven't seen yet so don't jump to conclusions just cause u like the Agera more
Jack Howard Jan 23, 2013
And once again, people are just pulling shit out of their ass and posting it.
Skyler White Jan 23, 2013
Koenigsegg would embarrass the venom on a track, are you kidding me?
William Downs Jan 23, 2013
Only one real way to find out, race them... but I might have to give an advantage to the venom just because of the weight difference, if the driver can keep the back end in check the venom will do great on a track... but the Agera is a koenigsegg so who knows
Luke Purdy Jan 23, 2013
-@jack it might not, venom has a shorter wheelbase but who knows
Mohammed Suhail Jamil Jan 23, 2013
Aye! Simply beautiful
Trent Fiala Jan 23, 2013
Agreed Connor Haha
Connor Scanlon Jan 23, 2013
This is by far my favorite rear end available right now.
