By Koenigsegg the resolution for 2022 is the one most enthusiasts can agree on: “more optimal performance.” While the details are few and far between, the Swedish company has published a dark preview image on its social media channels to give us an early look at a new one. hypercar.
As usual, the photo raises more questions than it answers. The catch is that the model seems to carry a much more angular exterior design compared to Jesko 1,600 hp, which is characterized by curves. Also Agera RS was more round. We won’t go far by calling new car classic, but it’s definitely worth noting that Koenigsegg’s early models (like CC8S) is also quite square.
Another point worth noting is that reverse engineered signs are selling well in supercar and the hypercar segment. Bugatti had no trouble selling 10 examples of Centodieci originated from Chiron, it’s a tribute EB110 built in the 1990s. And, Lamborghini Countach reborn already sold out ahead of launch in 2021; it is limited to 112 pieces. Koenigsegg’s CC8S will turn 20 years old in 2022, if you take our stride.
We’ve been told that Koenigsegg will deliver more optimal performance through “intelligent engineering and optimized design”, so the new model may have a few tech tricks up its sleeve. It won’t be the kind of tech that dominates CES 2022: Koenigsegg made it clear that their customers want to drive themselves and self-driving car not in its pipeline. However, the company is experimenting with extremely innovative ideas in the powertrain division (Its four-seater Gemera petrol-electric 1,700 hp mixture the powertrain is built around a cam-less three-cylinder engine) so it’s reasonable to assume the new model’s spec sheet will surprise us.
Then color us attractive. More information on the next Koenigsegg model will appear in the coming months.
