KOENIGSEGG Automotive AB, or KOENIGSEGG for short, is a Swedish manufacturer of high-performance sports cars, also known as hypercars, based in Ängelholm, Sweden. The company was founded in 1994 in Sweden by Christian von Koenigsegg, with the intention of producing a world-class supercar. Many years of development and prototyping led to the company's first street-legal production car delivery in 2002, the CC8S.
In 2006 KOENIGSEGG began production of the CCX, which uses an engine created in-house especially for that vehicle. The CCX is street-legal in most countries, including the US. In 2009 the manufacturer attempted to purchase Saab from General Motors (which was not finalized) in November 2009.
Apart from developing, manufacturing and selling the KOENIGSEGG line of supercars, KOENIGSEGG is also involved in "green technology" development programs beginning with the CCXR ('Flower Power') flex-fuel supercar and continuing through the present with the AGERA R and the REGERA. This manufacturer has the cars with the fastest top speeds (all its cars' top speeds are over 402 kph/250 mph).
KOENIGSEGG are usually considered the inventor of the megacar.
