Koenigsegg’s Spawned Customer Cars

The high performance Scandinavian supercar manufacturer based in Ängelholm (Sweden), Koenigsegg surprised the Auto Shanghai 2013 with its presence and exhibited few awe-inspiring supercars. There were two other cars too – Agera R and the Hundra, which is
basically the Agera S.

IndianAutosBlog (IAB) was covering the whole Auto Shanghai 2013 event live from its floors and I was a part of the project. Its editor Mr. Shrawan Raja had an exclusive chat with Mr. Christian von Koenigsegg, the founder of the company. Mr. Koenigsegg, who started the company in 1994, spoke about the special
edition Hundra, which was present at the hall, marking the milestone of
producing 100 cars by the maker. The car involves 24 carat gold leaf
piping with hand pump finish, a combination of old craftsmanship
technology and high tech carbon fibres.
                                                                                  

There were two other cars too – Agera R and the Hundra, which is
basically the Agera S. Both are bio-fuel and top of the line models and
are owned by customers already! Mr. Koenigsegg said that they are
uniquely designed on demand of the customers who know each other based
on their choices, which is why those two models boast a similar color
theme in contrasting colors. They are christened as “Ching” ( the
Chinese name is represented on the car ) and “King”, which is to be
delivered very soon to their respective buyers.

Asked about their plans for the next biggest automotive mela, he said
that his company usually misses Frankfurt motor show and attends the
Pebble Beach fiesta at California. We were so zealous to know about the
marque’s next all new model as you are. Mr. Koenigsegg said that we need
to wait another 3-4 years for an all new supercar, but hinted that
until then many new versions and evolutions of the Agera theme is
awaiting.

Dhiyanesh is equally crazy about driving cars and writing about them. This guy loves everything with a steering wheel, so, at someday if self-driving cars take up all driving, he is sure to go nuts! He likes sedans of 90s era, esp W140 S-Class and R34 Skyline GT. Apart from usual motoring stuffs, he maintains a strong appetite for sociological perspectives on cars, their historical and cultural footprints. He owns a 1999 Fiat Siena passionately, and drives a Ford Fiesta.
