Koenigsegg accused the auction house of understating the cost of a rare supercarJuly 2, 2019
Koenigsegg made a statement regarding the Bonhams auction, which will sell one of the six existing One supercars: 1. The car was valued at $ 1.8-2.3 million, but the automaker outraged the figure.
Koenigsegg One: 1, in question, was confiscated among other rare cars from the vice-president of Equatorial Guinea, Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mange, son of African dictator Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasoga. All cars will be sold at the end of September in Geneva, and the proceeds from the sale will go to social programs of Equatorial Guinea.
The following is known about the model that caused the dispute with the auction house: in 2015 Koenigsegg One: 1 cost $ 2.8 million, and a year later it cost up to five million. Last year, according to the DriveTribe, for the Swedish supercar already asked for seven million dollars. In this regard, Koenigsegg said that Bonhams called too low a price that “does not correspond to the market value of this model.” At the same time, the company itself does not specify what value it is talking about, but insists on recalculating the assessment. In addition to Koenigsegg One: 1, the auction will be sold to Lamborghini Veneno Roadster, McLaren P1, Porsche Carrera GT, Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari Enzo, and LaFerrari, F12 tdf and Aston Martin One-77.
