Koenigsegg Models

A Koenigsegg CC prototype was first broadcast in 1996, while the full prototype carbon fiber production was finally unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in 2000. The first customer took delivery of a red CC8S at 2002 Geneva Motor Show and four more cars were built that year. Koenigsegg was established in Asia later this year with a first in Seoul Auto Show. In 2004, the new CCR was presented at Geneva Motor Show; Only 14 were made.

In 2006 Koenigsegg CCX launched a new model that has been created to meet the global requirements for on-road use. This meant that cars had to go through a complete development to meet the latest and highest standards of safety and emissions that the worldwide authorities require; Koenigsegg was, for example, develop its own engines and related technologies. Furthermore, Koenigsegg is the only supercar and low-volume manufacturer to pass the new European pedestrian impact test. Immediately after Koenigsegg has passed this test, the requirement was deemed too complicated for compliance by small manufacturers, you now need to comply with these rules if the volume of production of a given model is less than 10 000 cars a year.

In 2007 Koenigsegg CCXR has created a version of biofuel / CCX flexible fuel. The machine has a modified engine management system, fuel system and engine, which allows the machine to operate on regular gasoline or ethanol, and in any mixture of these two fuels. The ethanol has a higher octane rating than the normal fuel and has an internal cooling effect of the combustion chamber, allowing an increase in performance.

In 2009 Koenigsegg released information on a special edition called the machine “Trevita”, three of which were planned to be produced, but only two were completed due to technical problems. The Trevita, which translates into English as “three white” has a body made entirely exclusive Koenigsegg carbon fiber coated with diamond material. The Trevita is based on the CCXR, and therefore produces 1,018 horsepower (759 kW) when running on biofuels.

In 2010 Koenigsegg released information to the 2010 Geneva Motor Show a new model called the Agera, which translates into English as “act / act.” The Agera is equipped with a V8 engine with dual 5.0-liter turbo variable geometry developed by Koenigsegg, capable of 910 hp (679 kW), coupled to a new gearbox to 7 reports. The Agera design follows a clear line of previous supercar Koenigsegg, but adds many new special features like a wider front track, a new style and aerodynamics and new interiors; Including a new lighting technology called “Ghost Light”, which consists of microscopic holes to hide the interior lighting until it is turned on, which then shines through what appears to be in solid aluminum. The Agera is in production by the end of 2010.

At the Geneva Motor Show in 2015, Koenigsegg has introduced a new machine called Regera, which translates into English as “kingdom” or “rule.” The transmission uses Regera Koenigsegg Direct Drive (KDD). Below 48 km / h (30 mi / h), the engine power two electric motors on the rear wheels and the internal combustion engine (ICE) is disconnected. the ICE is connected to a fixed transmission ratio without transmission, a torque from electric motors mentioned above and reinforced by a third electric motor fixed to the axle shaft over 48 km / h (30 mi / h).

Koenigsegg initially based his constructions made on the motor control of a V8 engine block for Ford Racing. These engines powered the first set of cars CC monikered. The block for the 4800cc V8 in CCX (Ten Cup competition to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the company) was expressed by the Koenigsegg at Grainger & Worrall United Kingdom, which also launches the block to drive the Agera R 5, 0 liters.

History of Koenigsegg

The initial design of the Koenigsegg CC has been designed by Christian von Koenigsegg. He then took his sketches of Industrial Designer David Crafoord so that it can achieve the sketches as a scale model 1: 5 David then put his personal touch to the design brief and finished the model. numerous tests This model was then scaled to create the basis for the first prototype Koenigsegg which was completed in 1996. In the coming years, the prototype has undergone, and several new prototypes were built.

Christian von Koenigsegg has had the idea to build his own car after watching the Norwegian stop-motion animated film Pinchcliffe Grand Prix in his youth. He made his first steps in the business world, at the age of 20 years, running a commercial company called Alpraaz in Stockholm, Sweden. Alpraaz exported to Europe to feed the developing world. The success of this venture gave von Koenigsegg the financial capacity to launch his chosen career as a car manufacturer.

Initially, Koenigsegg Automotive was based in Olofström. In 1997, the company needs larger facilities and moved to a farm just outside Ängelholm. However, on February 22, 2003, one of the production facilities it caught fire and was badly damaged. Since 2003 and Koenigsegg has converted two large hangars fighter jet and an office building in a car factory. Since the plant is located on the still active Ängelholm Airport, guests can arrive by private jet next to the plant. Koenigsegg control and uses the old military track for production cars shakedown race and high-speed testing.

The Koenigsegg badge was designed in 1994 by Jacob Låftman, based on the heraldic arms of the Koenigsegg family. The shield has been the family coat of arms from the 12th century, when a family member was knighted by the Holy Roman Empire based in Germany.
On 12 June 2009, the media reported that the Koenigsegg Group, composed of Koenigsegg Automotive AB, Christian von Koenigsegg, Bård Eker and a group of investors led by Mark Bishop had signed a letter of intent with Saab to resume General brand engines. General Motors has confirmed that on June 16 they chose Koenigsegg Group as a buyer of Saab Automobile. The agreement, which was to end September 30, 2009 included a $ 600 million of funding from the European Investment Bank, guaranteed by the Swedish government. By comparison, in 2008, Koenigsegg with its staff of 45 produced 18 cars at an average price of $ 1 million each; Saab employed 3400 workers and more than 93 000 cars produced.

General Motors announced the 18 that had been signed the August agreement, although some details remain to complete financing. On 9 September 2009, Koenigsegg announced that BAIC would join as a minority stakeholder in Koenigsegg. In November 2009 Koenigsegg decided not to complete the purchase of Saab and, therefore, left the negotiations. The chronological uncertainty finalizing the recovery was why Koenigsegg told to leave the case.

Koenigsegg Automotive

Koenigsegg Automotive AB is a Swedish high-performance sports car manufacturer based in Ängelholm in Skåne, Sweden.

The company was founded in 1994 in Sweden by Christian von Koenigsegg, with the intention of producing a supercar “world class.” Many years of development and prototyping led to the first company to legal production car production in 2002 rue.

In 2006 he started the production of Koenigsegg CCX, which uses an in-house engine created specifically for this vehicle. In most countries, including the United States, the CCX is a legal way.

In March 2009, the Koenigsegg CCXR was chosen by Forbes as one of the finest in the history of automobiles.

In December 2010, the Koenigsegg Agera won the BBC Top Gear Hypercar year.

In addition to development, production and sale of the Koenigsegg line of supercars, Koenigsegg is also involved in development programs of “green technology”, beginning with the supercar CCXR flex-fuel ( “Flower Power”) and continuing this with the Agera R. Koenigsegg also active in electric car development programs to connect alternative next-generation technologies, systems and engines. Koenigsegg also works [when?] In a piston engine, without

Koenigsegg develops and produces most of the main systems, subsystems and components necessary for their car instead of relying on subcontractors. At the end of 2015 Koenigsegg had 97 employees, with an engineering department of 25 engineers, personally directed by Christian von Koenigsegg.
