Christian von Koenigsegg Waxes Poetic About His CarsMarch 6th, 2015
“Koenigsegg” is a word that is usually generally followed by “bless you” in North America, unless you’re amidst car-fiends. Among petrolsexuals, it inspires awe, respect, and wonder. Normally, these tiny car companies are known for producing good ideas and bad cars before going out of business in a sharknado of litigation (the sharks are lawyers). Koenigsegg, on the other hand, keeps making better and better cars with amazing new features like camless engines, and solidifying itself as company that will have a true legacy. Christian von Koenigegg is 2015’s Enzo Ferrari or Feruccio Lamborghini.
In this video, Koenigsegg describes the company as more than just his passion or his project or his job; he describes it as his entire life. This company is what he has done with his life in its entirety, and I believe that’s why it is and will remain a fixture in the world of the hypercar.
