There’s something so viscerally satisfying about this, and there’s important lesson as well. Look, if you’re going to lie on Twitter about having an absurdly exclusive supercar to drive around, best to not tag the only people in the world who know you’re lying. Like this guy did, with a black Koenigsegg One:1.
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.
If you think about it, $6 million plus a bit of change isn’t too bad for the fastest piece of automotive history that can also be registered under the Show and Display regulation in America. Interested in buying it? Talk to these guys.
Video has emerged of what looks to be a super-expensive Koenigsegg Agera R supercar crashing in China. Priced somewhere around $4,000,000 US, it’s likely one of the most—if not the most—expensive single-vehicle accident ever.
Koenigsegg completed only four of the 25 Agera RSs that will ever leave the factory so far, but the 11th car will be the first to be fully homologated and road-legal for the United States of America. And you can see how it gets there.
As if Christian Koenigsegg’s cars weren’t cool enough already, he’s now making robot cars way cooler than Michael Bay ever could.
It was supposed to be ready in 1995 instead of a year later, and should sport a Volvo orange paintjob today instead of this brownish one. Oh well.
Traditional handbrakes are disappearing from cars even faster than manual transmissions, and since all upcoming Koenigseggs will come with electronic parking brakes as well, I asked Christian von Koeningsegg why we won’t be doing handbrake turns in the future.
Christian von Koenigsegg is a practical man. A practical man who likes to build supercars.
Koenigsegg went to Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps to set a new lap record for production cars with the One:1 last week. They managed to do that, ending practice Wednesday with a time of 2:32.14. It’s not the record they wanted to set or the one they deserve to set. I was there. The world, it seems, is against Koenigsegg.
Robert Serwanski is the Valentino Balboni of Koenigseggs, and while he drives the coolest cars on the planet daily at work, his daily driver is not a second hand CC8S. Can you guess what he drives?
What’s the best way to get your neck muscles in shape? Jump inside one of the six Koenigsegg One:1s with factory test driver Robert Serwanski at the wheel. That will count as exercise, and possibly stimulate colon health too, as it may evacuate your bowels faster than downing six gallons of Metamucil.
Floyd Mayweather may have taken our criticism of his car collection seriously, as “Money” is reportedly looking to add a $4.8 million Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita to his garage.
