While Christian von Koenigsegg has been basking in the glory of his most recent masterpiece, the Agera One:1, the Swedish supercar mogul is returning to the drawing board once more. However, this time it’s a more modest vehicle, relatively speaking.
In a recent interview with Australian website Motoring.com.au at the 2014 New York International Auto Show, Koenigsegg stated that his company is currently planning an “entry-level” supercar with a price reported to be around $600-700,000.
Interestingly, the vehicle would be debuting in a category that has no competitors—Ferrari and Lamborghini occupy a space in the near-$400,000 range with their respective supercars, though one potential threat comes from McLaren’s P15. One major question is what exactly will power this new Koenigsegg? If the marque’s previous efforts are any indication, one could expect a turbocharged V8. With the CEO’s expertise in the area of carbon fiber, the majority of the upcoming vehicle will most likely be composed of the exotic material.
Stay tuned to Motrolix for the official word on this new Koenigsegg model.
