Koenigsegg Announces Certified Pre-Owned Program
If you want to buy a new Koenigsegg supercar, you’ll need to have prepared anywhere between $1,5 to $2 million, depending on the model and market. Even more, a special-edition Agera S recently sold for $5.3 million, so one can easily see that for ordinary people, these are no bargains.
But now that the company produced over 100 cars, it wants to introduce a "pre owned certification program," for those customers that can not afford a brand-new supercar, but opt for a previously owned one. For example a pre-owned CCR is listed at €400,000 (about $550,000 at the current exchange rates), which is considerable less than a brand-new Koenigsegg.
In order to be eligible as a certified pre-owned car, "it needs to undergo an arduous inspection process as well as be updated and refurbished according to criteria set by Koeningsegg Automotive AB." If approved, that vehicle will receive a two-year factory warranty and free service. Another condition of making the cut; the vehicle had to be originally purchased from an official Koenigsegg representative.
