The way that thing started accelerating at 200 mph.... Jesus.
The engine looks to be based off of a modular ford motor. Ford should have put a motor like this in the new Ford GT.
How is it not a production car? The other Koenigseggs present were owned privately, meaning production.

Hmm, well it's made by a company, that has legally sold them in countless countries around the world. If you have the funds, and call them up, you can order one, at which point they start...PRODUCTION.
It's not a 1 of 3 car made by Joe Blow without a VIN. It's not a kit car. It's a production vehicle. They've done crash testing, meet headlight specs, etc, ETC.
Going from 150-230+ isn't that big of a deal if it's done right, if the road is nice and prepped and the suspension is set up you hardly notice it aside from visual input and G-Force. Sadly this is where the Veyron is still the King, Caddy of the 200+mph's, not the fast the damn if it's not the comfiest. I got to ride the test track a few years ago out here in Cali on an R1 and I wen't in my normal riding attire for riding to work, weekend plays.. once you start passing 120 you feel like you wanna be ripped off the bike and backed off way before 150. Went back out same bike but taped up in a couple of places and got to wear a friends old GP suit, tight af squeezes your [email protected] an yet they still have children afterwards. I looked down when I realized I was going a bit to fast and saw something 180's and didn't even notice. Koenigsegg is brute force with elegance, something like the Veyron is a whale with space shuttle rockets attached to it, on the way to the moon sipping your martini while your wife is blowing you up.
Go watch the /DRIVE Koenigsegg editions and say its not a production car. The dude crash tests, gets fuel from OTHER countries just to make sure his software can detect it and drive anywhere... these are not 1 trick ponies you load on a trailer to go race with. No other MANUFACTURE on earth does the amount they do in a small old retired AirForce hangar.
I like how the driver doesn't even go WOT until like 185mph.
How TF do you just cruise up to 180mph? What is this nonsense
I think the old air force hangar burnt down. I remember a story that early on, their factory caught fire. By the time the firefighters and Christian himself showed up, workers who live near by were already there and running in and out of the building, grabbing molds, blueprints, etc.
Story of the fire/factory/ghost logo...
Moon racing with that 200mph roll... Any one know where is that road at? SSC did a top speed run out in eastern Washington near where I️ grew up on a road that looks like that.

Just outside of Las Vegas this past weekend
A stretch of highway between Las Vegas and Pahrump will be closed Saturday and Sunday for some extremely reckless driving.
Under a special permit from the Nevada Department of Transportation, Swedish super-carmaker Koenigsegg plans to use a straight, 11-mile section of state Route 160 to try to set a speed record for production cars.
Always and forever will want one of those. Damn I love me some Koenigsegg’s.
You have to build 25 of them to be a production car. They haven't built 25. Pretty simple.
But they have all 25 sold and are still making them. Plus the regular Agera, Agera S. They will make 80 Regeras.
So that would make them a production manufacturer based off of needing 25 cars.
Also. They apparently broke 5 records that day. They will be posting them in the next day or 2. Along with the full runs in every direction.
No, it's still NOT a production car.
FIA requires at least 25 exact copies to be built within a 12 month period. While they have sold 25 RS's, they haven't built 25. Production started over a year ago.
Koenigsegg has a history of this type of false claim.
^ I listen to Everyday Driver and Koenigsegg used a Customer car. The customer was the one that got the ball rolling on this, it was his idea and contacted Christian (mr Koenigsegg himself).
Didn't they only build 5 Veyron's in the first year?
Also, the FGT was considered by the FIA to be an production car with only a few press cars built by the time the car started running in GTLM and GTE Pro.
Geez, that is pretty incredible. It did look like the road was slightly downhill though but maybe I am just crazy.
