When You Drive a $2.5 Million Koenigsegg Agera RS, You Rethink the Meaning of ‘Fast' When You Drive a $2.5 Million Koenigsegg Agera RS, You Rethink the Meaning of ‘Fast'

We have a running theory about Christian von Koenigsegg, the genius founder of Swedish hypercar company Koenigsegg, that basically states he’s actually from the future. He’s stuck in our era, trying to invent a car fast enough to take him back to his home time. After driving the $2.5 million, 1,360 horsepower, 277.9…

Koenigsegg Engine Deal With Real Car Company Spyker Terminated Koenigsegg Engine Deal With Real Car Company Spyker Terminated

Spyker, the Dutch automaker that never quite seems to have its shit together, has done it again. Over a year after announcing a partnership to source engines from Koenigsegg, and months after production was supposed to start, Koenigsegg now says the deal is off. Who could have seen this coming?

Koenigsegg Is Naming Their Last Two Ageras After Badass Movie Characters Koenigsegg Is Naming Their Last Two Ageras After Badass Movie Characters

Last month, Koenigsegg announced that their limited production Agera RS line was coming to an end. Each one of the 25 units produced have been sold, including the factory test RS, and the RS has absolutely demolished the record for fastest production car. The only fitting way to send off this incredible vehicle…

Here's The First Look At Koenigsegg's Next Supercar Here's The First Look At Koenigsegg's Next Supercar

There’s a replacement in the works for the 1,160-horsepower Koenigsegg Agera RS, and it’s scheduled to show up at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show in March. In a photo that more resembles a T-shirt design than a teaser photo for a new car, we now know exactly what a rough, basic outline of it looks like.

Here's What Koenigsegg Learned From Its Record 278 MPH Nevada Speed Run Here's What Koenigsegg Learned From Its Record 278 MPH Nevada Speed Run

Koenigsegg set an insane average speed of 277.9 mph in two runs of a stretch of highway in Nevada back in November, potentially making the Agera RS the fastest production car ever, and finally giving the company the opportunity to test at the limit in the real world. Here’s what they learned from that.

Watch Koenigsegg Crash Test All Of Its Priceless Carbon Fiber Supercars

Not all supercar testing involves competitive lap times and precision driving. Some of the shakedown process is just about crash testing, driving off curbs and smashing priceless Koenigseggs with a hammer which, here, has been set to a party music montage and is awesome.

Here's More Footage From Inside Koenigsegg's 284 MPH Run In Nevada

Early last month, Koenigsegg shut down a highway and took an Agera RS up to over 284 mph, eventually settling on an averaged max speed of 277 mph that might make it the world’s fastest ever street legal production car. Here’s video from inside the cockpit showing just how insane that run was.

The Koenigsegg Agera RS Is Only The Second Car To Smash A Nazi Speed Record That Stood For 75 Years The Koenigsegg Agera RS Is Only The Second Car To Smash A Nazi Speed Record That Stood For 75 Years

All of us – all of us – have definitively been there. Trundling down an empty stretch of barren, deserted, straight, flat highway, desperate to just gun it. That’s what the Koenigsegg Agera RS did on a stretch of Nevada road, hitting 278 mph. And by doing so, it might have broken the fastest speed ever recorded on a…

This Is What Koenigsegg's Record 278 MPH Nevada Speed Run Looked Like Behind The Wheel This Is What Koenigsegg's Record 278 MPH Nevada Speed Run Looked Like Behind The Wheel

On Saturday, the mad Swedes at Koenigsegg did something truly remarkable: in an Agera RS, a factory driver achieved an average speed of 277.9 mph during two runs on Nevada’s Route 160 between Las Vegas and Pahrump. This may make the Agera RS the world’s fastest street legal production car. Now you can see what those…

A Nevada Highway Is Shutting Down For Koenigsegg's Attempt At A Speed Record (Updated) A Nevada Highway Is Shutting Down For Koenigsegg's Attempt At A Speed Record (Updated)

If you live in Nevada and were planning on using Route 160 between Las Vegas and Pahrump this weekend, TOO BAD. Important things are happening that trump your need to buy groceries or go to the hospital or whatever. Koenigsegg, the hypercar company owned by a Swedish scientist from the future, is using a section of…

A Koenigsegg Agera RS Just Broke The Record For Going From Zero To 249 MPH And Back To Zero

Just last month, a Bugatti Chiron went from zero to 249 mph and back to zero in an incredible 41.96 seconds. On Sunday, a Koenigsegg Agera RS broke that record, performing the same feat in 36.44 seconds.

Christian Von Koenigsegg Specs His $1.9 Million Supercar Like His First Mazda Miata Christian Von Koenigsegg Specs His $1.9 Million Supercar Like His First Mazda Miata

Christian von Koenigsegg, the genius behind boutique supercar maker Koenigsegg and who seemingly doesn’t believe in limits, once had a Miata. One that he still thinks about, apparently, so much so that he spec’d out his own ultimata bilen just like his old roadster.

Mad Genius Koenigsegg Says His New V8 Will Last 200 Years Mad Genius Koenigsegg Says His New V8 Will Last 200 Years

The engines in supercars are notoriously fragile and short-lived. Mercedes’ upcoming engine may last a scant 31,000 miles, for instance. Koenigsegg, however, builds its engines so stout and so powerful that they could last for literal centuries.

Koenigsegg's Mad Genius CEO Can Track Every Koenigsegg Customer Car From His Phone Koenigsegg's Mad Genius CEO Can Track Every Koenigsegg Customer Car From His Phone

Mad genius and gravity skeptic Christian von Koenigsegg takes special pride in his cars. So much so that he is able to track the whereabouts of almost every one of them with his smartphone, because it allows him to have a personal connection with each customer to optimize their ownership experience.

The Geneva Motor Show Is The Best Motor Show The Geneva Motor Show Is The Best Motor Show

I’m in an unusually good mood today and it’s not because I got to pet my neighbor’s dogs in the elevator this morning. It’s because the 2017 Geneva Motor Show is going on and it is hands down my favorite show. Here’s why.

Real Car Company Spyker Will Get Righteous 600 Horsepower V8s From Koenigsegg Real Car Company Spyker Will Get Righteous 600 Horsepower V8s From Koenigsegg

Spyker, the on-again/off-again Dutch automaker, has had a great few years penning ultralux sports car designs but also a hard time doing the job of, you know, building cars that people can buy. Now another boutique manufacturer is stepping in to help out: Koenigsegg.

Just Listen To The Good Sound Of The Original Koenigsegg Prototype Just Listen To The Good Sound Of The Original Koenigsegg Prototype

Koenigseggs today are alien machines, unearthly in design and engineering wizardry made by a man from the future who builds cars until they are fast enough to take him home. But the first-ever Koenigsegg prototype was not that at all. It was a shoddy thing, looking like it came out of a shed in the 1990s, which it…

Why Does Koenigsegg Have A Ghost On All Their Cars? Why Does Koenigsegg Have A Ghost On All Their Cars?

There are certain little weird bits of knowledge that float around the collective unconscious of gearhead-dom that we just assume everyone knows about. Like how there’s a snake eating what might be a baby on the Alfa Romeo badge, or that Trabants were made from old Soviet underpants. Sometimes, though, it’s worth…

How Koenigsegg Nearly Built Subaru's Flat-12 F1 Engine  How Koenigsegg Nearly Built Subaru's Flat-12 F1 Engine 

My obsession with Subaru’s failed F1 engine, a flat-12, has gone on for years, and I had often heard that the motor nearly went on to power Koenigsegg’s first supercar. Now I’ve finally heard the full story.

Koenigsegg Gives Official Statement: Our 'Star Boys' Are Not In The Klan Koenigsegg Gives Official Statement: Our 'Star Boys' Are Not In The Klan

Koenigsegg is a Swedish car company run by a pioneering (possibly time-traveling, who can say) genius who thinks gravity is backwards, and that means it follows Swedish traditional holidays. Among these holidays is Saint Lucy’s Day, which, Koenigsegg is keen to remind you, does not involve the KKK. Even if it looks…
