The philosophy at Koenigsegg is one focused solely on performance.
Every single detail of a Koenigsegg car is measured against our continuing goal: to enhance vehicle performance. This is reflected in everything we do. Nothing is insignificant. The way we choose our raw materials, our staff, the setup of our facilities, our software, tools, systems and maintenance. Everything. Every aspect of the development process is focused on performance, not only in terms of power and speed, but in every deliverable. From powertrain to safety – every part must enable the car to deliver the best possible performance.
Every detail has a purpose
Our six-layer paint procedure makes the car’s finish more durable in the harsh conditions that cars are subject to at 400 km/h. Even the beautiful form of a Koenigsegg has a purpose. Our cars are wind tunnel tested during development and whilst a Koenigsegg is beautiful to the eye, the exterior design also serves a higher purpose, being the most streamlined design available that will accommodate the powertrain, comfort and performance requirements that customers demand of a Koenigsegg car.
We like to think that a Koenigsegg is sculpted by aerodynamic efficiency.
Safety is paramount
When you build a car as powerful as a Koenigsegg, you must remain mindful of the safety of your customers. We take every measure possible to ensure that customers feel confident in their vehicle whenever they take the wheel. A Koenigsegg is lightweight and balanced, making it both more agile and more predictable.
Of course, the cars are equipped with all the modern safety features that one would expect. We subject all Koenigsegg models to rigorous crash testing to ensure they meet or exceed world standards. In fact, our cars have been subjected to 18 different crash tests during their development. Yes, it hurts us to crash test our cars, but as per our philosophy at Koenigsegg, only the best will do.
Everything from the careful lay up of pre-preg carbon fiber to the interior of a Koenigsegg is meticulously hand crafted. Given our customers’ ability to influence the creative process during the specification of their car, every car eventually becomes a unique work of art built to the highest standards.
Only the finest materials are selected and hand-finished by skilled artisans. Our highly trained staff scrutinize every detail to ensure that we continue to meet the most extreme quality standards, again keeping the Koenigsegg philosophy intact.
The spirit of performance
The fruit of this philosophy, this painstaking attention to detail, is a flawless car with extreme performance and only the absolute highest quality. At Koenigsegg, we always strive for the best performance, the highest standards in the world. By doing so, we deliver the utmost satisfaction to our customers. We don’t accept anything but the very best. We strive for this because we know our customers expect only the best from a Koenigsegg.
This is our tradition, a commitment that has made us the company we are today. The Koenigsegg way. The spirit of performance.
