Koenigsegg talks about future plans

At the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, we got an opportunity to speak to Mr. Steven Wade, the copywriter at Koenigsegg Automotive.

Steven confirmed that there would be no more versions of the Koenigsegg Agera and that the Swedish manufacturer has already started working on the replacement for the hypercar. Although no information has been revealed, we can confirm that the car is already in its design stage.

Koenigsegg will continue with its two-car line-up. While the Regera will continue to be more of a grand tourer, the new hypercar will be a track focused car and will be a very fast car. The current version of the Regera, whose deliveries have just started, will be limited to just 80 units. Although nothing has been planned, Koenigsegg has not ruled out building different limited versions of the car.

The good news is that there will be no small engine from Koenigsegg. The upcoming cars will continue to be powered by a V8 engine. Christian von Koenigsegg believes that theoretically, a small 1.4-litre engine could be built to produce around 400 hp, but this is not something we can expect to see from the company in the near future.

Steven also confirmed that it is highly unlikely that there would be any cheaper car to sit below the Agera in the Koenigsegg range. The  company currently does not have the infrastructure to produce a cheaper supercar in large numbers.

At the famed motor show, the supercar maker showcased the first two customer Regera cars and one Agera RS customer car. While this was the first time the Regera was shown in production spec, the Agera RS made its debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and is limited to just 25 units.
