Here’s Christian von Koenigsegg playing a Regera exhaust like a trombone. That Aircore carbon fiber wheel wrapped in Michelin’s finest? $16,000. Photo credit: Koenigsegg.
We met Christian von Koenigsegg, the father of Sweden's hypercars, while he was hanging out at Spyker's stand at the Geneva Motor Show. He told us something quite juicy there — that in about 10 years or so, automobile engines won't have camshafts anymore. He's been working on his camless engines for a while.
Christian Von Koenigsegg once told Swedish online magazine Nyheter 24 that he invested all of his family's money in the car company he started at age 22 in Angleholm, working eight years without a salary and seven at a paltry sum. Such is the life of an über nerd with a dream.
