Koenigsegg (Koenigsegg Automotive AB) is a Swedish automotive manufacturer that produces and sells limited runs of high-performance sports cars, often referred to as hypercars and supercars.

Koenigsegg was founded in 1994 by Christian von Koenigsegg. He aimed to create a “world-class” sports car. Partnering with designer David Crafoord, Koenigsegg created the CC vehicle prototype. After many years in development, this led to the company’s first street-legal production model, the CC8S, of which only six were made and sold. This led to the company’s business strategy of only developing and producing a single Koenigsegg model at a time in very limited units, which has only recently been broken with the dual-projection of the current Jesko and Regera models.

So far, less than 500 Koenigsegg hypercar and supercar models have been built and sold, although the upcoming Gemera is planned for 300 units ( the largest ever for a single Koenigsegg model). This had led the brand to be highly coveted by automotive enthusiasts and collectors, in turn leading to incredibly high price tags in the millions of dollars and vehicles reserved and paid for several years in advance.
