Self-made billionaire Manny Khoshbin is a well-known figure in the world of hyper cars for his unique taste and, of course, his vast collection. Sadly, though, his efforts to expand this magnificent collection has hit a bump as his one-of-a-kind Koenigsegg Agera RS Gryphon crashed before they even delivered it to him.
So what happened is a Koenigsegg test driver took Manny’s Gryphon out for a run on their test track but for some reason or another he ended up in a ditch. The brand-new, multi million dollar hypercar suffered considerable body and mechanical damage, which means Manny is not going to get it. Not to worry, of course, as Christian von Koenigsegg himself has pledged to build Mr Khoshbin a one-off Agera RS. This one is going to be repaired and used as a factory test car. As for the test drive who crashed the Koenigsegg Agera RS Gryphon, we reckon he’s not going to be allowed behind the wheel anytime soon!
Don’t feel bad for Manny, though. It’s not like he is short of hypercars to enjoy himself while his bespoke RS is being built. Here’s just a little taste of what his personal garage looks like:

This is what Manny Khoshbin himself had to say about the incident on Instagram: “Yes it’s true! After mourning the past few days I am sad to announce My Gryphon while being tested by factory driver went off the track and suffered body damage. Fortunately no one was hurt and I was contacted same day by Tariq and Christian himself with sincere apologies, as well as offering different solutions to situation. The one I liked the most, is that the factory repair and keep the Gryphon, as a factory test car and then build me a brand new Agera RS with a very unique specification. I must admit having dealt with many car manufacturers, I’ve never seen more genuine, professional company than Koenigsegg. Accidents do happen but how they respond is what makes them!“
