Early footage

Found some early footage from Motorjournalen that i haven't seen before, thought i'd share!
It's from the old factory that burned down and they are testdriving the old pre production prototype. They also show the Motori Moderni 3.8L B12 that was supposed to be put into future models, aswell as a project iv'e never heard of before called the Koenigsegg LMP that kind of looked like a Radical SR8.

I also managed to find some pictures iv'e never seen of the 3.8L B12 at Koenigsegg mounted in one of the prototypes supposedly called the CC B12 (never heard of that before).

They also show the "clay model" wich is actually a design study made in wood, plastic and glass fiber rather than clay, might want to change that in the registry





Maybe this is what a Koenigsegg Agera B12 would sound like! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbGx66-E-4k

I remember this film and one thing has stuck in my mind...

At 3:18 he says "The gear box has a nice mechanical sensation, but the gears lie tightly and if you're not focused, you might end up wrong". Early on in Koenigsegg's history, there is a story about about a motoring journalist putting in first gear at 160 kph, revving the engine to 16000 rpm. Was this Peter Sundfeldt admitting that he was the one responsible for that?

Does anyone know what journalist it really was who was behind the incident with the first gear? Was it Peter Sundfeldt, or was he just referring to that incident?

The Engine in the 1990 Coloni (3.5 liter 48valve 1235 Motori Moderni, labeled Subaru) was under development (heavy=159kg, underpowered=500bhp, and unreliable). The version Koenigsegg acquired is a 3.8? liter 60valve development/evolution of that engine that never got into F1 before Carlo Chiti died (1994).

Pictures labeled Koenigsegg CC B12





Familiar? One of them are obviously not fitted with a B12 engine .. I think is the chassis without bodywork is the B12?

I think you can get one of them? For sale (Spezialmotorer Skogås Sweden)! Says Subaru, but I think it's a later one (probably one of the engines Koenigsegg got from Chiti's estate)

AMA1 With CvK - Early Years and Process - Koenigsegg | Koenigsegg

And Jalopnik make an article about the engine today

Here is a picture of the engine (should be Olofström first half of 1998?) mounted in the XX1 chassis (first carbon fiber chassis, later known as "Paris 2000" and "XP003") Photo: Per-Gunnar "Pege" Åkesson
