Koenigseggs come across as very well-crafted, in contrast to many boutique supercars, but they're still not quite "there" yet. They need an identity.
It is a mean looking car for certain but it's oddly not the least bit memorable. It's as if proportions are right but the detailing was done by Toyota to make this the Camry of supercars i.e. ironically anonymous. The nose is bland. The tail is bland. The nose needs to be angrier and the tail needs a healthy dose of attitude.

I agree with all of you who are saying that the Koenigsegg looks bland. The only model that looked good to me was the initial concept:



It's notoriously difficult to find pics on the web, but some details were different and the car had more character. All the production cars look as generic as exotic cars get. Swizzle's comparison to Toyota is spot on. The cars have zero flair, zero identity. Koenigsegg, if you are reading this, I'm bored to death with you. Which is a shame, because your cars seem be decent.

And even that picture reminds me of the TVR noses but gone further wrong.

3 things
1. awesome
2. lmao at the ski box
3. 186 mph top speed? I find that to be generously underestimated and probably untrue.

Yeah, what?? Are they sure that's not the top speed with the roof box on?

Exactly what I thought. The top speed must be at least 250mph, surely... :idonknow:
