Report: Koenigsegg will build an entry-level model

Slotting in below the Agera R pictured above, there are reports that the Swedish automaker might be developing a lower end model complete with a powerplant likely making less than the 946 bhp and 811 ft-lbs of torque offered up in the Agera R. How much is entry level? The best guess right now puts the lightest, and cheapest Koenigsegg in between $600,000 and $700,000. Given that this isn’t a high volume company, expect for the cars to fetch more than that shortly after they are purchased, or perhaps more than that, depending upon demand and the selling mechanism.

Are we excited?  Kind of sort of almost. This will give the big kids from Ferrari and Lamborghini something to think about, but in the low volume part end of the supercar world, this is an intangible entry that doesn’t set our hearts on fire without driving one or seeing it in person; hopefully Koenigsegg throws in a bit of the styling magic they did back when the CCX first came out; then and only then, might they have a compelling entry on any stage other than power.
