Steve Wade is Staff Editor at the company’s blog and got a call from his boss asking if he’d like to go for a little ride. Wade might see these cars every day and write about them, but this would only be his second time getting to ride in one. He said yes.
Koenigsegg offered to let Wade drive, but he opted instead to film the ride from the passenger seat. According to the Koenigsegg Blog, he had no desire to destroy his company’s test car in the dark in -6 degree Celsius weather. A wise man knows his limits, and such temperatures do not go well with properly warmed-up tires.
What follows is a video of the pair driving through the streets at night while Koenigsegg shows off his pride and joy. It’s not so much the view, but the audio that’s fascinating. His commentary provides fantastic insight into the car’s mechanics.
