This has to be one of the most expensive road-trips in history!
A group of Koenigsegg owners got together last month for an inaugural gathering and cruise.
What resulted was 13 of the Swedish hypercars driving in convoy from Copenhagen in Denmark, to the Koenigsegg factory, and back again.
The cavalcade accounted for roughly one tenth of the cars ever made by Koenigsegg in its 14-year history, which produces just a single car each month.
Spotting a solitary Koenigsegg in the wild is an admirable feat, so to see this procession rolling down the road is akin to spotting a tap-dancing rhino.
But this gathering of owners wasn’t just about taking a leisurely country drive, there was some track action involved as well.
The 13 owners were joined by Koenigsegg founder and owner himself, Christian von Koenigsegg in an ultra-rare Regera, on the manufacturer’s test-track.
An One:1 also joined in, but thankfully this one didn’t spear through a fence and catch fire – unlike its sister car which crashed spectacularly at the Nurburgring a fortnight ago.
Track time was relatively subdued thanks to wet weather. Well, as tame as possible with a bevvy of ridiculously powerful supercars and an empty runway.
Mr Koenigsegg was thrilled to see the cars come together for the meeting, and hopes that there will be future gatherings of owners around the world.
“This has never happened before in our history, and it is very emotional for me and the cars’ owners,” he said.
However, don’t expect a meeting of owners locally, with only one publically registered Koenigsegg in Australia. The same owner is rumoured to have another stored away in his garage.
While this Koenigsegg road-trip was certainly spectacular, the question on every Australian’s lips must certainly be “But, can you tow a trailer of goats with one?”
Your move, Christian.
