Almost exactly a month ago, we brought you news of the one-off Koenigsegg Agera R BLT – special order made for a very wealthy Chinese businessman. Turns out the car never really made it to its owner. Why? Because Chinese custom officials apparently seized the car saying that it was being ‘smuggled’ in order to avoid paying import tax.
Some sources say that the pre-tax cost of the one-off Koenigsegg Agera R BLT is around $2.35 million, while other Chinese media say that the tax-included price of the car is more like $4.7 million.
Apparently, for a vehicle like this the import tax can be as high as 100% of the original value of the car.
Now, that’s a pretty steep price tag – even for a billionaire businessman.
