Koenigsegg Automotive AG was founded in 1994 by Christian von Koenigsegg with the goal of building advanced and premium class supercars. The fruits of the company’s labor paid off in 2002 when their first street legal production car, the CC, was delivered. Since the delivery of the first Koenigsegg, the brand has become known for cars that rise above the average supercar in price and performance, outrunning the frontrunners of the industry.
The Koenigsegg CCR, a higher performance version of the CCX supercar, emerged in 2004. The CCR held claim to being the fastest production car in the world, as its 806 hp 4.7-liter V8 propelled it to a top speed of 242 mph. Bodied in carbon fiber and tested extensively in the wind tunnel, the CCR is a compelling example of Swedish design: form following function.
Built from 2011 to 2014, the Koenigsegg Agera represented a new model in the brand’s lineup, effectively making its predecessors a thing of the past. With a standard 927 hp twin-turbocharged V8, the Agera posted a new fastest production car speed of 260 mph, which was subsequently shattered by Agera variants in the form of the Agera R, Agera S, and the Agera RS with 1,124 hp, 1,016 hp and 1,144 hp power plants respectively.
At the 2014 Geneva International Motor Show, the Koenigsegg One:1 was unveiled, a version of the Agera that takes hypercars into a new territory of performance: that of the megacar. A hybrid with the equivalent of one megawatt of power output, the One:1 is named after its 1:1 power to weight ratio. Rated at 1,341 hp, the Koenigsegg One is aimed at track usage and limited production with seven cars total built, which will fetch a high price if they do resell, as all of them were sold before production began.
