The notes I have on file say that Car & Driver has had articles on Koenigsegg on three occasions:

September 2000, Paris auto show
November 2001, CC V-8 preview
March 2007, CCX quick test

Believe it or not I have complete C&D issues back to 1985, but unfortunately have not yet been able to go back and verify that the two earlier articles appeared in print (as opposed to internet-only). If they did, at the time I probably skimmed right over them, not thinking anything of some funny-named car!

The March 2007 article was from the press event held at Las Vegas Speedway, and featured #030.

Modified Luxury and Exotics did a report on the CCX and full several page article quite a few years ago, first time I ever saw a Koenigsegg!

This article is interesting, there is a picture of the black prototype I have never seen before. Do you have a full size scan of that page? Was it a recent picture? What does the caption say?

i have LOADS of car magazines, both in swedish and english, and some even in norwegian ranging from 2004 with alot of Koenigsegg articles. Problem is though, i have hundreds, and theyre not sorted and just lay in a big box... ill go through it when i have time! :)
Mostly auto motor & sport, teknikens värld and bilsport.

This is the best I have so far, but I guess Bilsport have pictures and coverage from the first prototype 1996 and forward. The digital archive only goes back to 2004, so I guess there have to be some "manual" work done to find coverage in earlier issues.

They closed businesses in 2008-2009? Would love to have more information about this!
