Koenigsegg owners club holds world’s most epic road-trip

A tenth of the cars ever produced by Koenigsegg come together for a blat through the Scandinavian countryside.

This has to be one of the most expensive road-trips in history!

A group of Koenigsegg owners got together last month for an inaugural gathering and cruise.

Your move, Christian.
