Koenigsegg Luxury Cars
The company was founded in 1994 in Sweden by Christian von Koenigsegg, with the intention of producing a world-class supercar. Many years of development and prototyping led to the brand's first production car, the Koenigsegg CC model, which eventually culminated in 2002 in the Koenigsegg CC8S model.
In 2006, Koenigsegg began production of the CCX, which uses an engine created internally especially for that vehicle. In March 2009, the Koenigsegg CCXR was chosen by Forbes as one of the most beautiful cars in history. In December 2010, the Koenigsegg Agera won the BBC Top Gear Hypercar of the Year award.
In addition to developing, manufacturing and selling the Koenigsegg line of supercars, Koenigsegg also participates in "green technology" development programs that begin with CCXR ("Flower Power") flex-fuel supercars and continue to the present with the Agera R.
Koenigsegg is also active in plug-in electric car systems development programs and next-generation alternative engine technologies. Koenigsegg is also running on a tubeless piston engine for the Regera.
Koenigsegg develops and produces most of the major systems, subsystems and components needed for its cars in-house rather than relying on subcontractors.
