This might just have your birthday and Christmas presents rolled into one. You may remember that a few years ago Koenigsegg hopped on the owners’ tours bandwagon (over the last few years, we’ve witnessed McLaren gather a flock of F1s, Pagani parade 13 cars around Tuscany, and Lamborghini clog the streets of Italy with many, many Miuras) but this year the Swedish supercar maker has expanded its operation and gone big. All that horsepower in one place… isn’t that how universes are created?
In total, 16 Koenigseggs from around the world homed in on Baden-Baden, 43 miles west of Stuttgart, to enjoy a few days of blatting around the beautiful Black Forest in the company of other like-minded petrolheads.
Proceedings started with the handing over of keys to the last two Ageras ever. Incredibly, they are called ‘Thor’ and ‘Vader’, and are known as the ‘Final Edition’ series – a run of three cars announced back in 2016. But now they’re here and in the hands of their lucky owners, it means the Agera line has totally finished. No more. No more special editions or anything.
These two are based on the Agera RS, though here fitted with special aero and every option Koenigsegg offers (at no extra cost). ‘Thor’ (yes, it’s a very cool name) gets a two-tone clear carbon finish with diamond flakes, a Le Mans-style central fin and the company’s active aero. ‘Vader’ (again, a very cool name) gets the same clear carbon/diamond flake finish, but also a pair of winglets and other highlights finished in white gold leaf. There’s a bigger rear spoiler, supported by strakes with bespoke cut-outs.
Over a few days, the box-fresh ‘eggs joined a raft of fourteen of their Swedish siblings (including the Bossman Christian von Koenigsegg leading the way up front in a glorious green carbon Regera) as they snaked their way around Germany, via the Schwarzenbach Dam and Koenigseggwald (a village in the Ravensburg district of Baden-Württemberg that’s the ancestral home of the Koenigsegg family), before hopping on a ferry and swanning across Lake Constance.
Thankfully, they had photographer Keno Zache along for the ride to document the incredible event. So click through the gallery and impress us with your Koenigsegg knowledge by letting us know what all the different cars are below. The winner will be crowned the unofficial King or Queen of Koenigsegg knowledge. Possibly.
