    My thoughts exactly. They just need to get more recognition, which will come in time. Not to mention, CvK, Bard Eker and Halldora are building the company for long-term success... Go KOENIGSEGG!!

    Sad that I won't be able to make it down there until this weekend. Hopefully I'll still catch it somewhere.

    (And yes, congrats to BC on the pure awesomeness that is the Agera R. All the best of success to Koenigsegg! Hopefully will be able to support them in the coming years if things go well.)

    From my perspective, based on the people I interact with, Pagani is much more well known.

    With BC's R here, I have a feeling a lot of the potential customers will see the car for the first time in person and really understand how great of a car it is. There are few cars that satisfy people buying cars at that price, the veyron is awesome, but not everyone likes it, he huayra isn't available here yet, but the Agera R is here and you can order one.

    Motor Week will make Koenigsegg a house hold name in the mind of the elite car guy, and more importantly, the car guys who can afford one.

    Huayra is available here now. LP logistics delivered one already.

    Now that CvK is in Monterey for the Concours, along with the Artico, this is his opportunity to get some deposits for new Agera's/Agera R's to be sent Stateside...Really hope they get the sales numbers they deserve, such a small company with bags of potential...GO KOENIGSEGG!!

    I don't know official numbers, but some people at VW said that Bugatti is not profitable right now (even with the support of a huge company like VW). For me, it is amazing how a small company like Koenigsegg can compete on such a high technological level. CvK really deserves a lot of respect!

    Since Bugatti seem to be losing over $2m on each car they build I would be very surprised if they were in the black.

    I don't see how Pagani sold 85 Hyuaras when there have only been 3-4 seen, inside and outside of the factory, but besides the point with the new gree and purple carbon Ageras being produced, and the 3-4 new ones spotted, it looks like Koenigsegg is going to have about 10-15 produced so far, which would put them in the clear financially because didn't they say they only needed to produce 1-2 more to be clear?

    I think they are expecting to turn back to profit this year, with the growth they have seen in the Asian and North American markets (the latter of which was 0 last year anyway).

    As for the 85 Huayra's sold, I do not know where they have sold them either TBH....Perhaps they will be delivered once they finalize the factory move, who knows (they are moving to a bigger factory supposedly)

    All in all, I do not see how Pagani gets to sell THAT MUCH MORE than Koenigsegg really
