Koenigsegg

Sweden is a country blessed, and built, with world-class engineering. The country’s fighter jets have always been at the forefront of technological development. Sweden’s transport industry has long been synonymous with exceptional quality and safety, whether it be trucks, busses, passenger vehicles or even the many small, specialist engineering companies working with the tuning and building of world-class rally cars.
It was against this backdrop that a young Christian von Koenigsegg followed a dream and launched his own car company in 1994. His sole mission: to create the perfect Supercar.
Of course, this was at a time where the Supercar was considered to be somewhat of a dinosaur, a temperamental relic from a bygone era. The world was at the end of a recession that had hit the sports car industry hard.
To Christian, however, it was a calling. He cared little about the state of the global economy or the obstacle that it might represent in the minds of others. He was busy fulfilling a dream.
The story of Koenigsegg is as fascinating and unique as the cars themselves. Christian was only 5 years old when he first saw a stop-motion film from Norway about a bicycle repairman who builds his own racing car. The film must have made an impression, as a young Christian grew up dreaming of creating the perfect sports car. Some 17 years later, and against all the odds, he did just that.
Christian showed an early interest for design and enjoyed the challenges posed by discovering new technical solutions. As a young boy he dismantled video recorders and toasters, just to see how they worked and whether they could be improved. As a teenager, he was known as the best moped tuner in town and in the early 1990’s, around his 18th birthday, Christian began to work more seriously with technical innovation and came up with two interesting ideas.
One of the innovations was called the Chip Player. He believed that one day, computer memory chips would be able to store an entire CD’s worth of data and that it would probably be a cheaper way to buy and store music. He conducted some patent searches for a musical device that would play chips instead of discs. In the end, however, no one seemed interested in the idea, so Christian moved on.
At the age of 17 he started working at a Suzuki dealership where he used to sell and clean cars. In his free time he used to tune mopeds and became well know for it in his area. By this time he realized automotive world to be his passion and started working on it on a daily basis.
In 1991 he invented a new solution for joining floor planks together without adhesive or nails. He called it Click, as the profile enabled the planks to simply click together. Christian presented this technology to his father-in-law, who ran a flooring factory at the time. He rejected the idea, saying that if it was viable, someone would have come up with it a long time ago. Christian then showed the concept to a few other floor manufacturers who also dismissed it. In 1995 a Belgian and Swedish company patented virtually exactly the same solution as Christian’s Click floor – they even called it Click! This is now a billion dollar industry.
After the Chip Player and Click disappointments, and amidst the general boredom of running his import/export company, Christian decided that instead of chasing after the perfect business idea, he would follow his heart. He would build his dream car. Christian understood that it was virtually impossible and that many had failed before him. But to him, it was a mission – to create the perfect car with no compromises, no limits, and no fear of failure.
Like many young men, Christian von Koenigsegg was fascinated by machinery as a boy. Like many young men, he even went so far as to dream about creating his perfect sports car. In stark contrast to the rest of us, Christian actually went ahead and turned that dream into reality – at just 22 years of age.
With extraordinary determination and vision, Christian explored the limits of both technology and innovation to create the Supercar of his dreams – the Koenigsegg CC. The Koenigsegg CC was the manifestation of a dream and its successful completion gave Christian the courage to continue, and to share his quest for perfection with others. Thus, the car company that bears his name was born.
In the year 1994 the Koenigsegg project was launched. The parameters for the supercar were established quickly. It had to be a two-seater, mid-engine construction with a detachable and storable hard top. A network was developed, made up of skilled designers and engineers with connections both to the Swedish car industry and associated institutions.
Christian made the first outline of the car on the 12 of August 1994, the day he decided to start his life-long venture. These drawings laid the foundation for all Koenigsegg cars - short overhangs, wrap around windscreen, large side air intakes, mid engine layout, and a detachable hard top. Today, more than 15 years after it was first built, the car still drives perfectly.
Koenigsegg moved into new premises in Olofström, southern Sweden in 1995. The development and production of the first prototype was initiated. The newly assembled Koenigsegg team made an extraordinary effort and in just eighteen months, a fully operational prototype was ready for media promotion and evaluation.
In 1996 exhaustive testing of the prototype was done on racetracks, public roads and in the Volvo wind tunnel. Among the world-renowned racecar drivers to test the prototype were Picko Troberg, Calle Rosenblad and Rickard Rydell. They were all amazed by the car’s outstanding performance. The concept had been proved to work. It was then time to introduce the concept to prospective buyers.
In 1997 the Koenigsegg CC prototype was shown at the Cannes Film Festival, to resounding acclaim. The satisfactory test results and the subsequent media coverage in Cannes enabled the company to move forward and start working on a finished, production-ready model. Maintaining the concept used in the original prototype, the chassis was modified to include a carbonfiber monocoque. Also a unique module system was also developed so the car could be configured to different setups.
The Koenigsegg team worked at full speed on the specified production model. The car was put through 57 different tests in order to comply with various international certification regulations. The Koenigsegg Company maintained a low profile with regards to the media. All efforts were focused on perfecting the final product. An ideal new facility was purchased near Angelholm, in southern Sweden, and the construction of a full production infrastructure began.
In 2000 the first production prototype vehicle wa assembled and tested during the spring and summer. The deadline was set for September 28, when the finished product will be presented to the jury of the world; the Premiere at the Paris Motor Show. Meanwhile, at the Koenigsegg facility, a full-scale production line for the manufacturing of vehicles was being finalized.
Glowing reviews appeared in specialist car magazines around the world early in 2001 following the successful debut of a silver production prototype Koenigsegg CC at the Paris Motor Show, late in 2000. The CC received several design awards; among them the prestigious German Red Dot Award and a prize for Swedish design excellence. Swedes vote the Koenigsegg CC to be Car of the Year in the Swedish magazine, Automobile Car and Driver magazine performed a series of tests with the car and found it better than the competition on acceleration, lateral G and braking.
In 2002 the first Koenigsegg CC, the CC8S, was assembled and delivered to its proud owner at the Geneva Motor Show in March. While the construction of the assembly line at Ängelholm was still incomplete, the team nonetheless managed to build five stunning cars during the year. Rather like his cars, Christian’s company moved at a record pace. It proved to the world that it is indeed possible for a passionate, dedicated young man to rival the old, established supercar brands.
In 2003 production was halted due to a fire in the company's kitchen area. All cars still under construction were saved, as well as most of the vital equipment used to build them. The office and most of the factory were destroyed. At first there were plans to rebuild the factory on the same site and in the same quaint, but high tech style that it used to be. Given the time this would take these plans were abandoned and Koenigsegg moved into new premises at the F10 Air Force Base, only 10 minutes away from the original factory. Koenigsegg was thereby able to retain use of the former military runway, which had turned out to be a very suitable proving ground. After some heavy modifications, the airforce base and its hangars became a very suitable place for Koenigsegg to build its cars and conduct business. It is here, in this state-of-the-art facility in southern Sweden, that Koenigsegg creates a handful of bespoke Hypercars every year.
Along with the buildings came a 1.7km runway, which has turned out to be perfect for high-speed testing of the cars. As the runway is 50 meters wide it can also easily be converted into a “race track” formation. Many Koenigsegg customers have enjoyed the possibility of landing their private jet on the runway just outside the doors of the factory. There is also a helipad in front of the main entrance for those who wish to travel by helicopter.
Each and every Koenigsegg has a premium price, but then each and every Koenigsegg has been painstakingly built by a select group of automotive artisans to the highest possible standards.
At Koenigsegg, the car is built with hand-made metal and carbonfibre components in its own hi-tech production facilities. They also source specialist components from a network of dedicated suppliers and partners – most of which are based in Sweden.
Many of these suppliers are small companies and craftsmen that produce low volumes of incredibly high quality components. The manufacture and assembly of components used in a Koenigsegg are both labor-intensive processes. There are more than 300 hand-formed carbonfibre parts alone in each car and the materials are extremely costly, without exception.
Thanks to Christian’s unique drive and vision, both his cars and company continue to move at record speed. In a relatively short period of time, Christian and his team have become experts in their field, challenging a decades-old supercar establishment.
Today, Koenigsegg employs 50 full-time staff, plus consultants. Everyone works under Christian’s direct guidance. Each and every Koenigsegg is created and meticulously assembled by a tight-knit group of automotive artisans to the highest possible standards, under Christian’s watchful eye.
Christian and Koenigsegg Automotive AB have introduced and patented several new technologies over the years. Among them are the ”rocket” catalytic converter, the supercharger response system and a variable geometry turbo system, to name but a few. Furthermore, several unique ways of using carbon fiber have been developed in-house, methods that make the car lighter, stronger and safer.
The Koenigsegg CCXR was the first ‘green’ Hypercar in the world, designed and calibrated to run on E85 and E100 biofuel, as well as normal gasoline.
The Koenigsegg philosophy does not tolerate compromise. Rather, they work at innovation in order to avoid compromise completely. Nothing is impossible. This open-mindedness and dedication are what define Koenigsegg and its cars.
The philosophy at Koenigsegg
Every single detail of a Koenigsegg car is measured against the company’s continuing goal: to enhance vehicle performance. This is reflected in everything the company does. Nothing is insignificant. The way they choose the raw materials, the staff, the setup of facilities, software, tools, systems and maintenance. Every aspect of the development process is focused on performance, not only in terms of power and speed, but also in every deliverable. From powertrain to safety – every part must enable the car to deliver the best possible performance.
Even the beautiful form of a Koenigsegg has a purpose. The cars are wind tunnel tested during development and whilst a Koenigsegg is beautiful to the eye, the exterior design also serves a higher purpose, being the most streamlined design available that will accommodate the powertrain, comfort and performance requirements that customers demand of a Koenigsegg car.
“When you build a car as powerful as a Koenigsegg, you must remain mindful of the safety of your customers” as stated by Koenigsegg. Every measure possible is taken to ensure that customers feel confident in their vehicle whenever they take the wheel. A Koenigsegg is lightweight and balanced, making it both more agile and more predictable.
Of course, the cars are equipped with all the modern safety features that one would expect. All Koenigsegg models are subjected to rigorous crash testing to ensure they meet or exceed world standards. The cars are subjected to 18 different crash tests during their development.
Everything from the careful lay up of pre-preg carbon fiber to the interior of a Koenigsegg is meticulously hand crafted. Given the customers’ ability to influence the creative process during the specification of their car, every car eventually becomes a unique work of art built to the highest standards.
Only the finest materials are selected and hand-finished by skilled artisans. The highly trained staff scrutinizes every detail to ensure that the car is able to meet the most extreme quality standards, again keeping the Koenigsegg philosophy intact.
The fruit of this philosophy, this painstaking attention to detail, is a flawless car with extreme performance and only the absolute highest quality. At Koenigsegg, emphasis is only on best performance, the highest standards in the world.

Erp Systems

... ERP systems work perfectly for companies with repetitive productions cycles like automotive parts, consumer packaged food, smartphones, chemicals, and commercial pharmaceutical products. (Turner, Greg. Apr 2006). Samsung for example pulls out new TV’s and smartphones almost every 10 weeks and has a relatively consistent inflow and outflow of money. This system works so well that if one product fails, than there are five others to replace it and to minimize losses. On the other hand there are companies that cannot rely on their broad range of products to help them out in case one product fails. Examples are exotic car manufactures, which produce cars only on demand. Koenigsegg, a Swedish car manufacturer only builds a car for you if you call them and specifically tell them that you want to buy a Koenigsegg. The same applies for Clinical supplies which are designed once and then produced once. (Turner, Greg. Apr 2006). Indeed “clinical supplies management better fits a job-shop scenario, where each job is different from the previous one. ERP systems are not well-suited for this type of an environment.” (Turner, Greg. Apr 2006). Commercial pharmaceutical products on the other hand are produced repetitive, even though it takes years of research and development, testing, adaptation and certification. Pharmaceutical companies like Pfizer indeed take the ERP system to its limits since years can pass before a new drug sees the market and revenue is gained after years of......

...because there are so many factories in the United States as well as in the foreign market. The more informational factories for individuals living in the states would be the foreign market. This would be because living in the United States and using foreign products and equipment, enjoying foreign cuisine, driving foreign cars, all of this information would greatly benefit and would also be extremely interesting to see how these things are manufactured. The wine industry in Italy would be great for the wine connoisseur. So the market would certainly be both foreign and domestic. From the Wisconsin Master Cheese maker with his many designer cheeses made with only the finest quality ingredient to the most elegant Lamborghini ever made or the Koenigsegg Trevita that is priced at $2.21 million and only three of these will be made, touring these factories would just leave the tourists in admiration of all the interesting information that can be obtained from factory tours. 4.

Tesla

...majority of automobiles sold in the U.S. and Europe will no longer be gasoline-powered. Tesla and Toyota have been the two companies driving much of the technology changes for clean alternatives to gas-powered drivetrains. What Tesla has done with its “Ludicrous mode” upgrade for the Model S is figure out how to put almost all of the power in its system to all four wheels at once without melting its engine-management components. The Tesla P85D with the complete 90kWh “ludicrous” upgrade costs about $100,000. The upgrade gives it a 0 to 60 mph time of 2.8 seconds. To put that into context, to get that sort of acceleration from a car previously required a Porsche 918 Spyder (0 to 60 in 2.3 seconds) or a Bugatti Veyron (2.6 seconds) or a Koenigsegg One (2.5 seconds). They each cost $1.1 million, $2.9 million and $3.8 million, respectively. You can save some money by buying a Lamborghini Huracan ($237,250) or the Ferrari 458 Italia ($239,340), but both are slower than the Tesla. That makes the McLaren 570s a relative bargain at $184,900, but it, too, is slower than the Tesla. Think about what this does to the high-end segment of the auto market. Tesla founder Elon Musk could put a sexier body on the Model S -- low-slung, fat tires, gull-wing doors -- and steal share from Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, Porsche, Bentley and Bugatti. Or, he can sell entire drivetrains to those companies and let them clad the cars with their own bodies. Or both. Whatever happens, the......

In order to succeed with a focus/differentiation strategy the company needs to know their customers particularly well as selling in this segment often mean that the product range is narrow but of high quality or tailored to a specific taste or need. Firms that succeed in a focus strategy are able to tailor a broad range of product development strengths to a relatively narrow market segment that they know very well. The luxury car market is an example of a market segment that usually has a focus/differentiation strategy. In Sweden we have Koenigsegg which caters for the rich, speed hungry customer and other famous brands within Europe include Ferarri, Bugatti, Rolls Royce and so on. These car brands are only achievable to buy for the wealthy and cater to a specific taste or need. A narrow market focus means that the companies using this strategy will sell lower volumes and hence have less bargaining power with their suppliers Companies with a differentiation focus strategy might however pass on some of the production costs to their customers. The main risks associated with focus strategies include the danger of imitations; for example a company with higher bargaining power taking on a company with an imitation product and a cost leadership strategy.

The 10 Most Expensive Cars... Ever

...are moving masterpieces of luxury. These are the most nimble, fastest, and innovative machines on the road. Exotic, lightweight materials in the body, dashboards that resemble fighter-jet cockpits, and leather from floor to ceiling are just a few of the standard bells and whistles one can expect when you own one of the meticulous pieces if metal. All of them cost more than most Americans spend on a home. From a $500,000 Mercedes that goes 200-plus mph, to the ultimate in Aston Martin design for $1.4 million, to a $2.1 million Swedish creation that could compete in Formula One — here are the most expensive street-legal cars ever made. (Prices reflect what these cars sold for at the time of production, not at auction years later.) 1. Koenigsegg CCXR — $2,173,950 The CCXR hits zero to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds and tops out at 250 mph, and the technology that goes into creating such a driving specimen is reflected in the price tag. Carbon ceramic brakes, Formula One-style traction control and a carbon fiber and aluminum honeycomb chassis all come standard on this car, which is hand built by a team of 45 Swedes. Other bells and whistles include a removable hardtop with a glass roof that can be stored under the front hood, leather carpets and a hydraulic lifting system. As a bonus, the CCXR is environmentally friendly; it burns either gasoline or ethanol. It also has so-called dihedral synchro-helix actuation doors, which flip up and forward when opened. 2.
