Koenigsegg

Koenigsegg was founded by Christian Von Koenigsegg just a quarter of a century ago and, since then, has established itself as one of the world's leading hypercar manufacturers, producing some of the fastest, most powerful, and extreme cars you'll ever hope to see. Also, a Koenigsegg is currently responsible for the world's fastest production road car after an Agera RS averaged 277.87 mph on a closed bit of public highway. The future seems just as bright for Koenigsegg who unveiled the Jesko, a 1,600-horsepower hypercar that the company hopes will reach 300 mph.

What is the Cheapest Koenigsegg?

The cheapest Koenigsegg model is the Regera with an MSRP of $1.9 million. Having said that, even if you do have $1.9 million laying around and you plan to buy one, you can’t. Koenigsegg built only 80 of them and all of them already have owners, so, in fact, the cheapest Koenigsegg you can actually buy is also the only that you can still order: the $3 million Jesko. Earlier in 2019, Koenigsegg announced that its partnership with Chinese-backed Swedish electric car startup NEVS will result in the production of a much cheaper, all-electric Koenigsegg to be unveiled in the first half of 2020. It’ll cost somewhere in the region of $900,000 to $1 million and roughly 100 will be built each year and that’s proper mass production for a brand such as Koenigsegg.

What is the Sportiest Koenigsegg?

The sportiest Koenigsegg is theJesko. Unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Auto Show, the Swedish automaker’s newest hypercar cranks out 1,600 horsepower - on E85 gasoline - and 1,106 pound-feet of torque from a twin-turbocharged, 5.0-liter V-8 that’s mated to a nine-speed multi-clutch automatic transmission dubbed the Light Speed Transmission (LST). The Jesko’s carbon-fiber tub is covered by a redesigned body (compared to the Agera RS that it replaces) with dive planes and winglets all over as well as a myriad of intakes, a huge diffuser, and a massive splitter, all meant to make the car go faster with the rear-wheel steering system helping it do that in the corners. Koenigsegg says the Jesko will exceed 278 mph flat out and we expect to see a trimmed out version come out sometime in the future that’ll try and go for the 300 mph mark.

What is the Most Popular Koenigsegg?

The Regera can be considered the most popular Koenigsegg since, by the company’s own admission, its 80-unit production run was the biggest in the company’s 25-year history. With all 80 already sold, the Regera is the most popular model ever made by the Swedes and we’ll probably have to wait until Koenigsegg introduces that much-lamented entry-level model for it to be dethroned. Having said that, Koenigsegg has made more cars based on the CC8S over the years - even the Agera series of models is loosely based on that design philosophy although they aren’t directly related per se.

What is the Most Expensive Koenigsegg?

The most expensive Koenigsegg is the Jesko. With a price tag of $3 million, it’s $1.1 million more expensive than the Regera and about $500,000 more expensive than the Agera RS. However, both of these models are out of production, so, as mentioned, the most expensive Koenigsegg is also the cheapest as it’s the only that the company based in Ängelholm is currently taking orders for.

What is the Fastest Koenigsegg?

The fastest Koenigsegg is the Jesko. We don’t really know how fast the Jesko can go on E85 fuel (to be able to utilize all of those 1,600 ponies) but Koenigsegg told us it can surpass 278 mph. For reference, the fastest production car in the world - which is a Koenigsegg Agera RS - reached 277.87 mph in 2017 to take the record away from the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport. The Agera RS was clocked at 284.55 mph in a one-way run. If the rumors turn out to be true, then Koenigsegg will try and smash its own record with a special version of the Jesko that’ll feature a leaner aerodynamic package for less drag.

Are Koenigsegg Cars Reliable?

There’s no denying that when you buy a car worth in excess of $2 million, you’re going to baby it the whole time it is in your ownership. That’s what happens with most Koenigseggs out there, the status of ’garage queen’ assured once the car rolled off the production line because of its scarcity, pedigree, and price. Of course, these cars are meant to be driven, not parked in a garage, and some do get driven. However, owners have told stories of poor reliability in comparison to Paganis or Bugattis although the overall experience with the cars seems positive.
