“I guess, to me, Koenigsegg is everything,” says Christian von Koenigsegg in a video uploaded to YouTube by the Swedish automotive manufacturer on March 4.
The video is titled “What is a Koenigsegg?” We all know that a Koenigsegg is a car, but to the man behind the company, it is so much more. To him, building and designing these cars is his true passion, making it less of a job. He says in the video that building these cars is easy and fun, as he is “creating something that is beyond what should be possible.”
And his passion shows in every single one of his cars. Founded in 1994, Koenigsegg first hit production-like levels with the CC8S in 2002 and the CCR in 2004. These cars both had top speeds of over 240 mph and still look futuristic to this day. Now, over 20 years after the company’s founding, Koenigsegg is looking to push their brand further than ever before.
Coming in new to their lineup are the Agera RS and Regera. Each of these cars will be produced in large quantities, 80 Regeras and 25 Agera RSs, and will be crafted simultaneously at their manufacturing plant in Sweden. The Agera RS pushes the ever-popular Agera model closer to the One:1 program, while the Regera will be the fastest and most powerful series production car in the world. As of right now, Koenigsegg truly is creating cars that are beyond what should be possible.
