    How sad. Bet you the owner didn't park it there voluntarily.

    Lol when I went to school in Philidelphia I left my car in an indoor garage over winter break (2.5 weeks). When I came back it looked worse than that.

    But does Florida have that kind of dust? Something is very wrong and very sad- especially because its one of the rare and beautiful black/red cars!!!

    Owner in prison? Coma? Modern day barn find? Who has a friend in the DMV? Run the plate!

    Somebody left their Koenigsegg in one of the public parking garages here in Zurich for several months. The parking bill was probably 10k at least. But then if you own a Koenigsegg, I guess that's not a concern.

    Looks like they took time and care to find a corner spot and park it as far from the the other cars as possible. Probably some poor, overworked chap that doen't have time to get to enjoy it.

    That is a very plausible explanation. The dust shows several layers of writing though. My explanation is something happened to the owner and the car is somehow abandoned/ forgotten.

    Jerry, it is probably Justin Bieber's car. He's had a few problems lately. If not him, probably Snowden.

    Neither has enough good taste to own a Z8.

    My guess is it belonged to someone who went bust and then the car was forgotten.

    Well if it is Justin, you have to admire a young man that knows when he want's to drive drunk that he should at least park the Z8 and rent a yellow Lambo.

    So the owner of the Koenigsegg now has his Mclaren P1 parked in the same lot (you can tell because the plates are the same:in Switzerland you can use the same set of plates for multiple cars).
