    Yeah they do, though I like this one even better to be fair. DRIVE has a better automotive focus than NatGeo, with all due respect

    ^For those who do not know already, that cartoon was his inspiration in establishing Koenigsegg AB, as stated by him time and again.

    Hmmm, guess I have to say, thank you "Pinchcliffe Grand Prix" ?

    What's that R8 doing there?!
    I always stop to help women broke down on the side of the road. Not because I know shit about cars, but I do know how a good porno starts off...

    Awesome video and Mr. Von Koeingsegg is a charismatic person it seems when it comes to the tech stuff, very interesting that he has no formal education on those subjects; however, I guess that sort of outside perspective is necessary in order for innovation and he really stepped it up

    The morning after I watched this video, I took my company car to work as usual, which felt like I was driving a box.
    Not only that, anything on the road that day, including every other car on the road, looked like carton boxes to me in comparison to Koenigsegg's.

    I felt so awestruck, yet felt envious, given that I work in the automotive industry as well, after I witnessed;

    1) The perfect balance of the car under braking from 315 KM/H
    2) Horshoe shaped fuel tank built "INTO" the monocoque, all of which weighs about 70 kg's
    3) Enormous attention to the smallest details and the stupendous engineering know-how of this small company
    4) The car feeling so planted while going 220 KM/H sideways
    5) The passion the select few working in the company have for "the show to go on", in tribute to the Ghost Squadron

    as well as many other things that got me head over heels for the creations of CvK & the Koenigsegg family

    I am still a sad man since that day; as I do not think I will "EVER" get to drive or own a Koenigsegg
