Koenigsegg took to the 2013 Geneva Motor Show to celebrate a milestone in the company's history. The Swedish supercar manufacturer has officially built 100 units over the past ten years, and to mark the occasion, designers whipped up the Agera S Hundra. Swedish for – you guessed it – one hundred, the Hundra heralds the arrival of the latest flavor of Agera. While the standard Agera S features a twin-turbo 5.0-liter V8 engine good for 1,040 horsepower, carbon fiber wheels that tip the scales at around 14.5 pounds and a total dry weight of 2,821 pounds thanks to a full carbon fiber body, the Hundra offers up a few additional tricks.

A one-off creation, the commemorative edition delivers hand-laid 24-karat gold leaf along the exposed gel-coated carbon body. Various other bits of the hypercar get the precious metal treatment as well, including the exhaust, rear deck struts and even the coil springs themselves. How much is all this insanity worth? A cool $1.6 million. Money may not be able to buy you happiness, but it can surely put your tail in an Agera S. Check out the full press release below.

Koenigsegg from 0 to 100 in 10 Years

2002 - After eight painstaking years of constant development, the small striving Koenigsegg team delivered the first production cars to anticipating customers.

10 years later, in September 2012, the first carbon prepreg pieces were cut on the routing machine for Koenigesgg's 100th production car. The car was duly named "Hundra" (Swedish for 100) – a unique one-off Agera S being built for an excited car collector.

Fast forward to March 2013 – The Hundra is finished in time for the 2013 Geneva Auto Salon. A beautiful clear carbon right hand drive Agera S with celebratory, artisan hand laid and swirled, 24 carat gold leaf inlays, creating an intriguing mix of traditional and hi-tech craftsmanship.

A lot has happened in the past 10 years. Koenigsegg has evolved from being a small and unknown car developer, to becoming a household name, revered for excellence and performance - competing head to head with the strongest brands in the industry.

What a fantastic 10 years it has been:

- Four Guinness World records

- Forbes award for one of the ten most beautiful cars ever made

- Prestigious Red Dot design award

- Top Gear Hypercar of the Year award

- Longest lasting Top Gear Power Lap record ever

- Entrepreneur of the Year - Ernst & Young

- Worlds Top 100 Luxury Brands award

- And the list goes on

Most importantly, the Koenigsegg family has grown from a handful of dedicated craftsmen and engineers, to over 50 full-time employees and more than hundred proud caretakers of precious Koenigsegg cars.

All these individuals share the same passion and goal - to carry the Koenigsegg brand, experience and philosophy steadfast into the future.

- Given the success, has Koenigsegg become relaxed and rests on its laurels?

On the contrary. The Koenigsegg range still stands proud - head to head against the greatest new car onslaught in hypercar history.

In fact, the Koenigsegg team can't even wait to get their creation of passion measured against all the latest and greatest hypercars currently being launched.

Prepare to be surprised – again!
