Koenigsegg isn’t just content with being an exclusive brand for the rich and super rich; it also wants to cater to people who can’t afford their supercars . So the company is thinking of adding an entry-level model in its mix, although by its definition of "entry-level", it’s talking about a car that costs just $600,000. The company’s dictionary sure is a lot different from the rest of us.
Speaking to Motoring Australia at the New York Auto Show , Christian Von Koenigsegg expressed his plan to add a little diversity to the Koenigsegg lineup. Instead of just offering hypercars that come with seven-digit price tags, Von Koenigsegg is looking to add a new model that will only cost six digits, or to be more specific only twice as expensive as a Lamborghini Aventador .
We can make light of Koenigsegg’s relative idea of "entry-level", but we can’t deny that such a car sounds no less interesting than its current models. He indicated that this model will still retain a high degree of exclusivity that should bode well for those wanting a Koenigsegg but can’t afford the $1.3 million price tag of the Agera . There are people with that kind of money, especially in the Chinese and U.S. markets replete with car-loving individuals that have the deep pockets to match their thirst for speed and exclusivity.
Koenigsegg didn’t divulge a whole lot of details about this "entry-level" supercar, but you have to wonder what the timetable is for this car’s arrival.
Here’s to hoping it’s sooner rather than later.
