Inside Koenigsegg (Sweden)

Postby StrictlySaab » Wed Feb 13, 2013 10:40 am

Im sure everyone remembers back in 2009 Ksegg was a serious bidder in buying Saab from GM but ended up walking. The Drive channel on YouTube has been running a nine episode series called "Inside Koenigsegg". There are six out so far, a new one released every week or so. If you want to spend an hour or so blowing your mind about what goes into hand building a 1100+hp, sub 3 second 0-60mph car that costs $1.5m+, click the link and drool! :crazy:

Really makes me think, dream and wonder what would have come of Saab if Ksegg followed though with the purchase and was successful in reviving the Saab brand.

(Since its a series over time, the episodes are jumbled up in the Drive network videos. Its best to just search for "Inside Koenigsegg" and look for the episode number in the search details)

What?


Rather than driving Martina's 98 CSE back and forth from FL and NJ and renting cars up there when visiting, just keeping her car up there and this is "her car" of sorts down here. The only auto trans I have is the truck which she doesn't seem to enjoy driving for some reason or another. :lol: Ive taught her to drive stick but shes more a the hammer to the floor and go type person. Heck, last time driving up to NJ one way was $250ish in fuel alone. Did it straight though but it was painful. Easier to jump on the steel bird. It was a clients car, very well gone though with new tires, all new pads and rotors, fuel pump, ac evap core, blower motor, regular oil changes and a CIM last year, only has 97k miles.

Couldnt swing a Koenigsegg sadly.

Anyone catch the latest episode 7 of Inside Koenigsegg? Very good episode where they retrofitted a late model OG9-5 with pneumatic actuated cylinder valves. Definitely a simple technology I can see making its way into the everyday car within the next 5-10 years.
