    This is the most amazing 4 seater ever. Mid engine 3 cylinder 3 valve twin turbo with 600 HP + 1000 HP of electric motor drive.

    0-60 1.9 sec

    Probably because they ARE a small company.

    When asked why he made this car, Koenigsegg said "this is the car I wanted for myself". AKA -- no marketing person told me what to do. No engineering staff told me what we cannot do.

    It’s hot. Who knows the price tag? And yes, everyone needs 8 cup holders in their lives.

    I remember when 0-60 in under 3 seconds seemed inconceivable....and then 0-60 in under 2 seconds was nothing more than a dream. What's the next frontier...running a mile in less than 4 minutes? :)

    According to Christian, they’re ultra-efficient; when one cools the other automatically heats up from the energy spent for cooling.

    so sad I can’t afford this car...

    Hope the interior is easy to clean. That kind of performance, your passengers will be losing their lunch.
