-When asked if there’s anyone to whom he won’t sell a car, von Koenigsegg replies that until recently he’d always said yes to anyone who could afford to buy one. That’s changed.
“We now say no if we think they’re not the right buyer,” he says, adding that certain people are simply too much trouble. “It doesn’t happen often, but that’s quite a nice thing to be able to do.”-
Hmmm....I wonder to whom he could be referring

Haha even if BC was a pain in their ass, I'm sure they took notes and tried to correct anything he may have brought up.#whatisBLK

The race against Solberg was held at a public event where Tommy Shariff showed of his insane driving skills..
Koenigsegg offered him driving lessons that Tommy ignored, and showed up to the race without ever driving a Koenigsegg before and got laughed out because of his driving skills. He spun it in the first turn, had no control and ended up spinning out into the sandtrap.
Media then made Shariff look like an idiot who lost a 1.000.000 NOK bet with his Koenigsegg, Bård Eker was furious because of the bad press he had given the company (the adventures of Tommy Sharif was all over media)and asked Tommy if he could buy the car back. Bård didn't want to pay the full price however because of parts being damaged when it spun into the pits. The whole thing turned ugly, Tommy started to talk a whole lot of trash about Koenigsegg in media (just like someone else did...) and it all ended up in a lawsuit where Tommy tried to get Koenigsegg to file for bankruptcy...
Tommy Sharif is quite famous in Norway, however he's still most famous for the whole story about Koenigsegg.
Heres the video where he makes a fool out of himself...
And to add to the story.. Koenigsegg repaired the car and sold it to one of the heirs of H&M who after just 18hrs crashed the car into a dumptruck....
