Its pronounced something like... 'Kaw-nig-seg'

They said it on a SPEED Channel test they had on it.

Wes is pretty much right

But it's pronounced with a bit of a guttural tone... Hope that helps...
Actually If I had a place to upload it I could get one of my friends to say it and just record it

yes Koenigsegg is one of my faves!

I live in Holland and have seen many Koenigseggs at the shows incl the earlier prototypes of 1999 and 2000!

many CC 8S and the orange CCR. Took many nice pics:-)

Unfortunately there was one CC 8S here in The Netherlands but it burned to the ground at the dealership. In fact the whole dealership burnt down with loads of exotics! incl Bugatti EB110 and many Ferraris!)

So there allready one Koenigsegg less:-(

Regards,

Patrick T.

Re: Koenigsegg CCR information and pictures... (Under construction)

Hello!

Im a friend of the Von Koenigsegg family ( Christians father Jesko ), so if you have any questions Im gonna try to give you a correct answer. Most people here in Sweden who is interested in cars knows the most of this car and every magazine and tv-show speaks about it and has done for the past, i guess 10 years ( the cc8 ).
