    so after Pebble, Christian kept saying oh another few months, the car will be passed by end of year...and that goes on.and...the car they without asking my preference decide to store it in Las Gatos in Northern California, which I had wanted the car to be kept at Symbolic with my man Marc Chase...so the few months after Pebble, I was like Christian what are you willing to offer me...and it turned into the usual Christian bs stalling back n forwth..and I was like..u fuckin kiding me..this isnt a negotiation...I am fuckin tryin to help you out...and after both sides have came to some sort of compensation parameter which I was very unsatisfied with, and I made this very clear to him at that point:

    "If this goes any bit more south, or if I am still unimpressed with the car after whenever I finally get the chance to drive it 100% over a year waiting for it. Mark my words, I will make sure that you won't sell a single Agera car in the US, and I am willing to come out of my own pocket personally just to guaranteed that" ... You bet it was a threat 1000%, and I don't do promises I don't keep...unlike Christian...he is just the opposite

    another few months went by....nothing... I was like ok..i want u to do these following for me....get a manufacture plate asap and have the car in my possession to drive until the car passses....and be the top sponsor on goldRush 5, and bring a demo car...his response..we can't do that..the cost associate with it is too large...and we only have one demo car and that car stays at the factory...I was like what kinda micky mouse company doesn't have a sales demo car? And i am still giving you another another another chance before I go full on BC ape shit on your dumbass...the guy still just doesnt get it..I was doing him a favor.. He knows I was the very very few people that have both the AgeraR and the SS...and have no problem driving the balls out of them and go head to head with them, if the Agera does indeed outperform like Christian claims and believe in, that along is the single biggest marketing campaign in itself...he couldn't get it..

    John Hill from Bugatti US fully understand what a passionate and influential happy owner can bring to the such a marquee brand, even tho I am still relatively young I have established a good sense of impact in the car community. Which I would do anything for John, and Bugatti. They have treated me so well, beyond my highest expectation when I first bought my 08 Veyron. Christian again..can't see that, and couldn't comprehend the fact that I will be buying Bugattis for the rest of my life, it could be Koenigseggs too....

    and in the end...I was 95% sure I will be seeking a full refund plus compensation..I told Christian, lets send the car to a track for me to take it out for at least a whole day at 100% finally maybe if the car is indeed that impressive might be the slightest chance to chance my mind...and also to Symbolic service that was where the SS was at the time to photograph both cars together....and that retard start going off about..ohh whos going to cover the insurance...and I should pay for the cost associate with the transport....I was like...seriously? Seriously? How big of a fuckin moron are you. It was at that point, in November, I told him to give me my damn money back and plus more....

    Of course we started negotiation about the refund and compensation, another typical bs n stall process went on for a few weeks. I told him I understand they are a small company, so I will give them 4 weeks to do the full refund...first wire didn't even come in till the 2nd week...it took them 2.5 months total to refund me just over 1MM USD...of course filled with all sorts of typical Christian excuses and bs and what not... that in itself also just shows you how cash strap and a joke of an operation Koenigsegg really is..

    Beyond everything else factual wise, it was just the lack of sincerity and effort I have felt all along the way, especially during the last few months that make me have no regret making my experience public for the automotive world....


    Koenigsegg is at a point where no swedish banks are willing to give them new loans, they have had to keep on taking on new investor; I know the guy that made the Redline Movie was in the contract phase of buying the majority of the company years ago for 10MM...at their rate now, I see the company going bankrupt in the next 5-8 years given any miracle moves...and which is very sad...but that is the truth...and facts don't lie.

    In august 2011 6,5% of all B-shares in Koenigsegg was sold om auction for 1,3 million SEK ( ca 200.000 USD ).. This after an investor been bankcrupt.. That would indicate a very low company value in total.. If i dont remember wrong Koenigsegg got a very big cash injection last year though.

    As a Swede i almost feel guilty for how bad they have done this.. If you need a contact in Sweden to fix any local problems, contacts etc, just pm me..

    I really hope this is a joke, or you just read what I said earlier about Pagani and you assume I enjoy these worst or the worst car nightmare situation...

    Some companies look at the immediate monetary return and just can't look further into the future and what a customer can do for a brand. When I work with different clients on marketing and advertising, focusing on the customers is always the utmost priority! A happy customer will bring more customers but a dissatisfied customer can derail a whole brand single handedly. Just owning one of these specialty cars is only part of the experience, all of the customer service and "perks" is the other part and both go hand in hand!

    Really a shame to see such a promising marque making these mistakes. This is what you call a PR disaster.
