Yep! I won’t stop working towards that goal until I do. The Koenigsegg badge was designed in 1994 by Jacob Låftman, based on the heraldic coat of arms of the Koenigsegg family. Every example appears to be a work of art, and reviews tend to say that too.

, So that’s what that’s what this little ‘meetup’ was! Both of the records set by Bugatti and McLaren were set on Volkswagen's own test-track Ehra-Lessien, which features a 5.6 miles (9.0 km) straight. Well done Koenigsegg company. Furthermore, Koenigsegg is the only low-volume sports car manufacturer to pass the new European pedestrian impact tests.
Koenigsegg is also active in development programs of plug-in electric cars' systems and next-generation reciprocating engine technologies. After moving into the abandoned airfield, which once housed the Swedish air force's "Johan Röd" squadron, Koenigsegg adopted the "ghost symbol" that the squadron had on their planes, which were Saab AJS37 Viggens aircraft (the squad also used the English phrase "The show must go on" on their aircraft as well) as a tribute to the squadron. Sports car enthusiasts might be familiar with Christian Von Koenigsegg.

When do we get to see journalists road testing the Regera? Koenigsegg and his wife, Halldora von Koenigsegg, are leading the company. [62], On 4 November 2017, an Agera RS set a new record for the world's fastest production car with an average speed of 447.19 km/h (277.87 mph). To name a few - the click flooring system, the Triplex rear suspension, the top mounted active resr wing system, the patented Koenigsegg synchro helix door actuation system, The patented rocket catalytic converter, the patented dual throttle compressor pressure relief system, the patented direct drive transmission, a patented hollow core composite production system, a patent pending dielectric coolant system and several patents for Freevalve - an innovation that uses electronics and air pressure to actuate intake and exhaust valves. These cars are just simply amazing. [4], Christian von Koenigsegg has come up with many in innovations and several of them are patented. How to find your Koenigsegg Workshop or Owners Manual.

I’m sure the owners will appreciate that!

The prototype, as the name suggests, is the first Agera that we built. 1996 First Drive – Koenigsegg CC In 2004, the new CCR, which was basically a high performance variant of the CC8S, was unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show; only 14 were produced.

This model was later scaled up in order to create the base plug for the initial Koenigsegg prototype that was finished in 1996.

The Trevita, which translates into English as "three whites", has a body made entirely of Koenigsegg's proprietary material consisting of diamond-coated carbon fibre.

Driving a RWD 1160 HP hypercar during heavy snowfall is not to be taken lightly and I think I agree with you Mr. Wade, about the many uses of a large carbon-fiber splitter. The first prototype enabled the foundation of Koenigsegg Automotive AB. These Subaru 1235 engines were purchased and modified for use in the CC; this deal failed when the founder of Motori Moderni died, sending the company into bankruptcy. But if I were one of the owners(hopefully I will be one day) I would have also felt the need to go beyond the Koenigsegg Owner’s Tour and conquer Geneva! [21] The engine is mated to a 9-speed multi-clutch transmission having seven clutches called the "Light Speed Transmission" (LST) by the manufacturer. Teaser sketches were released by the company at the same time. These engines powered the initial run of the CC monikered cars. Bear in mind that this is a rear-wheel-drive car with 1160hp! While most owners had their car shipped to Geneva for the event, we do have to acknowledge one intrepid owner who decided to drive to Geneva, including a stint through the snow-covered Swiss Alps! When he was six years old, he drove a go-kart for the first time in his life, and he vividly recalls this as "one of the best days of his life". "We were just about finished building his car, and he said 'I want to see how fast this goes.' "So when we heard he had achieved that, we thought we'd better help out, because it's uncharted territory, and it's dangerous.

During the next years, the prototype went through extensive testing and several new prototypes were built.

And YouTube, magazines and TV shows are our way of getting a bit of this unreachable fantasy car , Your email address will not be published. Koenigsegg was established in Asia later that year with a premiere at the Seoul Auto Show.
Koenigsegg was established in Asia later that year with a premiere at the Seoul Auto Show. This was 1.8 seconds faster than Koenigsegg’s previously unbeaten record, set by the Agera RS in 2017. The badge is seen on models built in the factory that was converted from their hangar. We asked our experienced Koenigsegg photographer, James Holm, to do a shoot with the cars at Quay de Cologny by Lake Geneva, and the beautiful Hotel des Eaux-Vives.

As it turns out, the entire thing was not even his idea, but rather the car's owner. It attained 0–300 km/h in 11.92 seconds and 0-300-0 km/h in 17.95 seconds (a 3.24 sec improvement over the 2011 Koenigsegg Agera R record), it also attained 0–322 km/h (0–200 mph) in 14.328 seconds and 0-322-0 km/h in 20.71 seconds. By comparison, in 2008 Koenigsegg with its staff of 45 produced 18 cars at an average price of US$1 million each; Saab employed 3,400 workers and made more than 93,000 cars.

Required fields are marked *, 262 74 Ängelholm, Sweden [58] The CCX also accelerated from 0-200 km/h in 9.3 seconds.

[8][9] Eventually Koenigsegg developed its own engine based on the Ford Modular architecture which was used in its early sports cars. The Trevita is based on the CCXR, and therefore has a power output of 1,032 PS (759 kW; 1,018 hp) when running on biofuel.[15]. Whatever you guys do in the future, I’m confident that it’ll be breathtaking. [57], In 2008 the German magazine sport auto conducted a 0–300–0 km/h (0–186–0 mph) test for production cars, with the CCX winning the event in a total time of 29.2 seconds.

The von Koenigsegg lineage is attested from CE 1171 and originates in Swabia (see Königsegg for details). No car has such a glory or extrodinary beauty!!
