“They have a good test track, Volkswagen – but they wouldn’ let us use it, of course,” said Koenigsegg. “Maybe they would before there was such a thing as a Bugatti Veyron. But not now.”
As James May has just shown us, running a road car to that sort of terminal velocity requires a good deal of well-surfaced, straight road and preferably a high-speed corner leading onto that straight road. There aren’t many places on the planet that fit that description and Christian von Koenigsegg is painfully aware of it.
