Prior to that, having started his career at VW, Selipanov also worked at Lamborghini and contributed to the design of the Huracan. Yeah, that’s a decent CV.

“I look forward to fusing the Koenigsegg way of developing and designing cars with Sasha’s experience and radical methods. I expect spectacular results.”
