Koenigsegg Automotive AB is a Swedish manufacturer of high-performance sports cars, based in Ängelholm, Skåne County, Sweden.
The company was founded in 1994 in Sweden by Christian von Koenigsegg, with the intention of producing a "world-class" sports car. It built several prototypes of the exclusive CC coupe in the years 1996-2000. Many years of development and testing led to the CC8S, the company's first street-legal production car which was introduced in 2002. It was fitted with a 4.7-liter 655 hp power plant.
In 2006, Koenigsegg began production of the CCX, which uses an engine created in-house especially for the car. The goal was to develop a car homologated for use worldwide, particularly the United States whose strict regulations did not allow the import of earlier Koenigsegg models.
Later models included Agera, One:1. Current model line-up at the time of writing consists of Regera, Jesko, Jesko Absolut and Gemera.
