Koenigsegg's 100th Car Will Be Special


Swedish supercar maker is planning very special model to celebrate its 100th car. We just don't know how special it will be.
After establishing his namesake supercar company back in 1994, it wasn't until 2002 that Christian Von Koenigsegg delivered his first supercar to a customer. The CC8 was the model in question, packing a Ford-sourced 4.7-liter V8 supercharged up to 646 horsepower into a unique carbon monocoque and built entirely in-house. In the years since, Koenigsegg has incrementally upped the power until the redesigned Agera R debuted last year with 1,110 horsepower on tap - nearly double the original's impressive output.

Over the years Koenigsegg has developed a diamond-infused form of carbon fiber and built its cars to flex-fuel capacity to run on biofuel. It's taken 18 years (or ten since the delivery of the first car), but Koenigsegg is now preparing to deliver its 100th car. Word has it that the Swedish automaker is planning something special to mark the occasion, but it may be too early to say what it will encompass. We'll be sure to let you know as soon as we hear, though.
