Throwback Thursday. The arrival of Koenigsegg
After revealing the Regera at the Geneva Motor Show, Koenigsegg has got everyone talking excitedly once again. But back in 2003 Koenigsegg was an unknown Swedish supercar firm, with no history of thunderous performance and excellence behind it.
For this week’s Throwback Thursday, here’s a clip from Martin Brundle’s Supercars, a programme made by the ex-Formula 1 driver 13 years ago, which saw him drive a range of top-end machinery including the then-brand-new Koenigsegg CC8S. It’s fascinating now to see how a man who really knows his cars reacts to the new kid on the block, and his conclusion at the end is somewhat prophetic.
