Koenigsegg supercars deliver mind-bending performance
Christian von Koenigsegg launched Koenigsegg Automotive in 1994 in Sweden at the age of 24. Today it is one of the most influential supercar manufacturers in the world and trails only Bugatti in market share.
Koenigsegg makes nearly every component of the car in-house and sells them for a starting price of $1.4 million per year. In a good year, the company will sell 12 to 14 cars per year, Bloomberg News reported, and in 2013 it celebrated the construction of its 100th car: a 1,030-horsepower, carbon-fiber Agera S finished with stripes of 24-karat leaf gold flow in from Italy.
“Asia is definitely our biggest market,” von Koenigsegg told Bloomberg News.
