Koenigsegg may have been established back in 1994, but it didn't deliver its first car to a customer until 2002. Ten years later, the Swedish supercar manufacturer began work on its one-hundredth car, which will be unveiled this week at the Geneva Motor Show. Called the Hundra, which is Swedish for 100, Koenigsegg's celebratory one-off creation is based on a new version of the company's current supercar called the Agera S.

We don't know much about its mechanicals, but based on the latest version of the Agera, the Agera R, we would expect over 1,000 horsepower from its twin-turbo 5.0-liter V8 and performance figures that will require a follow-up call with Guinness.

The right-hand-drive Hundra is being built for an anonymous collector and, as you can see in the few teasers provided by Koenigsegg, features clear carbon fiber bodywork decorated with hand laid and swirled 24 carat gold leaf inlays. It sounds over the top, but it's better than celebrating 10 years of producing supercars with a cake.

For those who might find an Agera's price tag too steep to stomach, Koenigsegg has also announced a new coffee table book about its history called 0 to 100 in 10 Years, as well as limited edition photographs signed by company founder Christian von Koenigsegg, both of which are available to preorder by contacting zerotohundred at koenigsegg dot com.

Stay tuned to our live coverage of the Geneva Motor Show this week for a full view of the Hundra, as well as, we hope, more details about the Agera S.Continue reading Koenigsegg Agera S Hundra celebrates company's 100th car built
