Sports Car Market recently asked me to write a piece on the sale of a Koenigsegg CCR. The wonderful thing about writing for this popular and well managed publication is that the diverse assignments help constantly expand my knowledge base. Prior to producing this article, my familiarity with this obscure Swedish supercar manufacturer was slim. After days of research and phone calls I’m more fluent—not an expert—but pretty knowledgeable on the brand. A few years ago we did an article on the sale of a Pagani Huayra and it was a similar positive experience. Read on to learn about the CCR and the incredible upstart supercar company that has emerged from humble origins.
