The head of the Swedish company Koenigsegg, Christian von Koenigsegg bought the car, which was owned more than 20 years ago. One of the company’s employees saw the black Mazda MX-5 at the exhibition, and von Koenigsegg personally persuaded the owner to sell him a roadster.

The publication Road and Track writes that Christian never had a hypercar: he sells all the cars, including test prototypes. For daily trips, von Koenigsegg uses the Tesla Model S P85 and waits for the delivery of the Model 3, his wife drives a Volvo XC90 or a Porsche 911 Targa. However, eight months ago, a black Mazda MX-5 appeared in their garage – the same car that Christian owned in the years of the Koenigsegg formation.

According to von Koenigsegg, the MX-5 is a good example of a car that gives pleasure without excess power. Christian adheres to the same principle, to the forefront of emotions, when creating hypercars, but unlike MX-5, they simply have “crazy returns.” Koenigsegg presented his latest model at the Geneva Motor Show. Jesko Hypercar was named after the father of Christian Yesko von Kenigsegg. The two-door received a five-liter V8 with a power of 1600 and 1500 Nm of torque, a Triplex suspension with three shock absorbers and a 9-speed LST “robot” with eight clutches.
