With a dream to launch his own car company and the sole mission to create the perfect supercar, Christian von Koenigsegg, then 22 years old, started his namesake company in 1994.
Price of the Koenigsegg Agera R, the latest model, works out to Rs 12 crore in India, including taxes
Koenigsegg moved to its present location and headquarters in Ängelholm, Sweden, in 2003. The building had previously been home to the Swedish Air Force and once housed JAS 39 Gripen fighter jets.
Now refurbished to suit Koenigsegg’s requirements, these facilities provide the perfect infrastructure for building high-tech supercars. It is here, in this state-of-the-art facility in southern Sweden, that Koenigsegg creates a handful of bespoke supercars every year.
What do they offer
Koenigsegg makes luxury super cars that can clock 400kmph. All Koenigsegg models go through rigorous crash testing (around 18 different kinds of such tests) to ensure they meet or exceed world standards.
Koenigsegg cars are wind-tunnel tested during development. The exterior design is the most streamlined design available that will accommodate the powertrain, comfort and performance requirements—highlights of a Koenigsegg car.
Where can you order it
Koenigsegg is represented in India by InterGlobe ESTD, which takes all the orders and forward the requests to the Koenigsegg headquarters in Sweden.
What can you choose
The buyer can choose the colour of the car, the interiors, the type and colour of leather for the seats, the stitching, other personalization options such as incorporating names or initials. Everything from the lay-up of carbon fibre to the interior of a Koenigsegg is meticulously hand crafted.
How long does it take
Typically, it takes up to 12 months to deliver a Koenigsegg from the date of order. All the customization happens at the Koenigsegg premises in Sweden, where a customer can visit and choose from an array of options for his dream car.
