Supercar collector Kris Singh acquires one-off Koenigsegg Agera XS

Article by Christian A., on September 2, 2016

Have you ever heard of the name Kris Singh? If you’re passionate about cars, you’ve probably come across this name at some point while you scour reports about the latest and the rarest supercars to be built. Kris Singh is actually an American businessman who works as a Managing Director for Tequesta Investments, a Florida-based investment firm. His net worth? Well, let’s just say it’s roughly around $200 million dollars. Amazed already? Wait ‘til we get to the juicy bits.

He’s basically filthy rich and what exactly do rich people like him do with their excess cash? Apparently, he has a keen eye for excellent rides and has a penchant for collecting cars. He used to be one of your typical car collectors but in January 2014, he made international headlines after he purchased one of four brand new ultra-rare Lamborghini Venenos.

The car is by far the most expensive production car to date but Singh and three others were lucky enough to get their hands on it. It was required for Kris and the other owners to pay for the car in 2012 before they even got the chance to see how it looked like; they bought the car for $4.11 million and were then flown out by Lamborghini on a private jet to the 2014 Geneva show where they finally laid their eyes on the Veneno. A few weeks after the event, the cars were then delivered to their rightful owners.

However, Singh’s special collection doesn’t just end there. He is also the owner of the one-off Koenigsegg Agera XS which was recently brought to this year’s Monterey Car Week. The car was flown off from Angelholm, Sweden to Monterey California along with the Regera.

Singh’s Agera XS is the first of its kind that has been certified for U.S. roads. It is based on the Agera RS. Although both share the same twin-turbocharged 5.8-liter V8 and 1,160 horsepower and 944 lb.-ft. of torque on tap, they have distinct differences with the XS being more hardcore than the RS. The XS has been fitted with the largest wing that was ever fitted to a Koenigsegg car and because of that, it is also safe to say that it must come with even beefier aerodynamics parts.

The Agera XS comes in a gorgeous Karosserie Orange paint job which makes it even more of a headturner at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering along with the Regera. Singh was also at the event and he was able to see his custom built supercar in the flesh for the first time.

Singh not only owns these two valuable pieces but also a one-off Pagani Huayra “La Monaza Lisa” edition. Kris Singh really knows how to pick his muses, most of them special limited-edition models. Hopefully we get to see more of these bad boys in action.
