    Default Koenigseggs plans to get into professional racing?

    A few years ago, there was some talk about Koenigsegg entering professional racing in Le Mans; but it has been quiet on that front for a while.

    Whatever happened? Do they plan to enter again?
    The Agera-One could prove some serious competition out there.

    They built the CCGT to compete in FIA sanctioned racing, but the FIA changed the regulations so that each car the racecar was based off had to be produced in at least 350 examples a year. Koenigsegg produces about 12 cars a year, so they obviously couldn't qualify anymore. Shame, but I'm not sure if they would have funded a big racing program unless they saw early success anyway.

    Ah, that's a shame.

    Would love to see this, but I doubt the money is there to fund something like this.
