Koenigsegg’s main heartbeat is reinvention, and not just with their models. Koenigsegg continually reinvents what’s possible in terms of physics, aesthetics and even how a company should be run. Meet Christian von Koenigsegg, the founder and CEO of the revolutionary car company based in Sweden. “To me,” he says,” Koesignegg is much more than a car, it’s basically my whole life… it’s pretty much everything.” His visionary dream to create the world’s greatest and fastest super-sports car became a reality in 1994 when he launched his company at just 22 years of age. Each model is meticulously engineered and passionately designed with the patron in mind, and never mass-produced. Can art truly be copied? And, never one to set superfluous goals, Christian’s company even breaks tradition by working without heeding the constraints of time. With this new level of creative energy, the Koenigsegg team can reach new heights in function and beauty.

Since Christian’s start in 1994, the rare supercars that Koenigsegg custom builds each year set world records with their speed, braking abilities and design. With a Koenigsegg model at your grip, you’ll command a one-of-a-kind vehicle with unique origins and eye-catching beauty.

What is a Koenigsegg?

Creating the Perfect Supercar

Christian von Koenigsegg set out to create the perfect supercar with a simple philosophy: one that had “no compromises, no limits and no fear of failure.” The result? A plethora of speedy, indulgent hypercars created by a team of 300 full-time staff and consultants that delight the world with their graceful movements and record-setting abilities. Each models’ focus is performance, which means while the design is beautiful, the exterior has been sculpted to be aerodynamically perfect, the engine durable and pronounced, and the safety system ready to protect against the unthinkable.

Each hand-crafted detail has a purpose with Koesignegg, and this meticulous craftsmanship is exemplified in the striking stances of the models they produce. Do you think you have what it takes to be the owner of one of these pieces of art?

Christian von Koenigsegg launches the Koenigsegg car company at the age of 22 years old.

First prototype was completed, the Koenigsegg CC prototype, and later received international attention at the Cannes Film Festival in 1997. The prototype still drives perfectly to this day.

Only six of the CC8S models, or CC V8 Supercharged, were produced. With 655 horsepower, the CC8S engine beat a Guinness World Record as the most powerful engine in a series produced car.

Now with a total output of 806 horsepower, Guinness again verified a Koenigsegg model as the most powerful production car in the world with the CCR. The CCR became the world’s fastest car in the same year in Italy with a top speed of 241.01 mph recorded.

The CCX was the first Koenigsegg to be sold in the U.S., and set the record for seven years straight at the Top Gear’s test track.

The world saw the first ‘green’ supercar with the debut of the Koenigsegg CCXR, a model designed and calibrated to run on E85 and E100 biofuel (as well as traditional gasoline). The achievement of 1,018 horsepower set another record.

Koesignegg continued their monopoly on speed with the CCX setting new speed records again, this time achieving a 0-300-0 km/h run in just 29.2 seconds, and accelerating from 0-200 km/h in just 9.3 seconds.

In just three years, the company once again set speed records with the Agera R, with a 0-300-0 time in just 21.19 seconds — an incredible eight-second improvement.

In true revolution, the Koenigsegg One:1 became the first production car in the world with a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio. 2015 saw the One:1 claim lap records at Suzuka Circuit and Spa-Francorchamps.

The Koenigsegg One:1 shaved the 0-300-0 km/h run down to 17.95 seconds from the Agera R’s previous record of 21.19 seconds.

If setting new records every other year wasn’t enough, try achieving five new world records with the same model, the Agera RS. A stat from just one of those records is 277.87 mph, the highest top speed for a production vehicle.

Deep in the forests of Sweden, the Koenigsegg Regera ran a 0-400-0 km/h in just 31.49 seconds, setting another world record. The same track was completed in 2017 by the Agera RS, but the Regera beat its time by 1.8 seconds.

The first four-seater from Koenigsegg, the Gemera launched as the world’s first Mega-GT. Swedish for “to give more,” the Gemera does just that with a spacious interior and environmentally conscious engine. With 1.27 megawatts of power and 3500 Nm of torque, the Gemera is a marvel.
