Koenigsegg winds down the Agera era and begins the Regera era

Big things are happening in Sweden. One of the world's most impressive cars, the Koenigsegg Agera, is making its way toward retirement. The Agera has had quite a career, bringing intriguing new technologies to market and earning a slew of honors and records. Koenigsegg celebrates that distinguished run with a trio of "Final" editions. No need to get teary eyed for the loss, though; the even more extreme Regera will soon step in as the official Koenigsegg to be seen in. Read More

Koenigsegg creates a new breed of hyper-hybrid with 1,500-hp, transmission-less Regera

Don't call it a hybrid. Christian von Koenigsegg doesn't like the term or the compromises he feels it implies. So although his all-new 1,500-hp (1.11 MW) supercar is the absolute top dog in the growing market of hyper-hybrids, he refuses to refer to it as such. When your car routes 1,100 hp and 738 lb-ft (1,000 Nm) of V8 muscle through a 700-hp electric drive (there is no gearbox), you can pretty much call your car whatever the heck you want. Koenigsegg calls it the Regera and positions it as the absolute king of the road. We call it the most insane piece of supercar engineering we've ever covered.Read More

This year's show seems just a little more special than usual, with shimmering aluminum and glossy carbon fiber imprisoning our pupils in virtually every corner of the six halls of the Palexpo. It was a dirty job, but we dove in with both feet to bring you photos of every track-hugging race car and road trip-hungry convertible. Read More

Koenigsegg builds on experience with 1,160-hp Agera RS

Within the world of boutique supercars, Koenigsegg is pretty much sitting at the top of the heap. There are many arguments to support this, but perhaps one of the best is sitting on the company's show stand at Geneva right now. It's called the Koenigsegg Agera RS, its engine cranks out a staggering 1,160-hp and everything on it is designed and built in house. Read More

World record price for Winchester motorcycle highlights discrepancies in the collectibles marketplace

The recent discovery that a motorcycle made by a gun manufacturer has held the outright world record for the most expensive motorcycle ever sold at auction for the last 12 months raises some interesting contrasts between the different genres in the collectibles market. The bike has an instantly recognizable name, but it’s a name that even the most learned of motorcycle historians would struggle to associate with a motorcycle. As reported in the The Star newspaper of DaKalb County, Indiana, on Saturday evening, August 31, 2013, a 1910 Winchester motorcycle sold at Worldwide Auctions for US$580,000. Though the story has been in plain view for more than 12 months, the world has remained oblivious until now.Read More
