DRIVE channel has launched a new series called Inside Koenigsegg, which as the name suggests, gives us behind the scene look at Koenigsegg’s operations and facilities. We get to see how they go about developing and building their cars. It is always fascinating with bespoke hyper cars, because often the production process is more akin to assembling an exquisite watch than an automobile.
In the first episode Christian Von Koenigsegg himself reveals the secrets behind building automotive components from carbon fiber, the strong, lightweight material that’s crucial to modern high-performance cars. Carbon fiber expertise is quality all hyper car makers share. It is key to their production, and crucially, performance.
