Koenigsegg Heads to the Nurburgring

Posted by: Xavier Kwan onApril 19th, 2016


Koenigsegg is a company that delivers direct and impactful statements with each and every one of their vehicles. Following with that mantra, the company decided to get ahead of the curve and spill the beans to the public about their planned Nurburgring appearance.

The company states that they “unfortunately won’t be recording any record times any time soon. We won’t be doing a lap record in the immediate term, but we will be there and because people will see us there and expect all sorts of things, we thought we’d get out ahead of the car-spotters and tell you what we’re up to.”

Koenigsegg last year had planned to have a go at recording the fastest time around the ring. However, due to new speed limits which were put in place at certain parts of the track after a spectator death last year the record attempt run was put on hold. Koenigsegg will be focusing their time and effort on preparing the One:1 for a record attempt over the next few months, but like all other automakers, Koenigsegg will have to wait their turn and line up things like track access/availability, driver schedules, and weather in order to get the optimum conditions to produce a record lap.
