If that's a 240 then it's a 240 eggcrate grill probably from europe.

thats Mathias Vxs car, he works for koenigsegg ....in the design department, so making his own gill probably isnt a stretch.
That car has tones of small things done to it, like front fenders sectioned and welded in to the rear wheel arches, it was one of the first if not the first 240 to be legally registered with a t6 engine.
The list is long you, you can read about the car on speedhunters

Euro grill part number 1304353. Priced appropriately and available from Europe.

The euro models got the 86-> front sheet metal in 81. So the grill would only need to be modified to fit up to the front of the hood. This grill was used with a flathood but shouldn't need much to work with the 86 and newer hood. I saw a nice red 242 turbo with this grill a Carlisle a couple times. But the car was fitted with a flathood.

It's a 240 surround with a 740 turbo insert fitted to it. It's not a euro 240 eggcrate grill.

^^ Quite right. Still requires modding. The 740T grille is flatter than the 240 surround, so the rib across the bottom has to be removed to allow it to bend a bit more. Other trimmage is required to adapt it to the 240 surround. I'm right in the middle of doing all this now...

Judging by the way the front bumper trim is peeling away at the edges, he probably just painted it.

The e-code headlight and turn signal trim were available in black also (for turbo cars).
Cheapest and easiest way to do it yourself is Plastidip.
I've done and tried all kinds of methods of painting them. The plastidip holds up the best.

I used to have to repaint the black trim on the front of this car every 6 months. Since using plastidip it's been almost 2 years and I haven't had to touch it. It's also commute to work daily driven 356 days a year and sits outside all year long.

Even easier. Just wash, dry, tape off what you don't want it on and shoot it. No scuffing or prep (other than being clean) is necessary.

Lowes and Home Depot carry it in spray cans.
