July 2016 saw Koenigsegg host the first of what we hope will be many owners’ gatherings around the world. This was a truly significant event, with just over 10% of Koenigsegg’s total lifetime production present.

We commissioned a film crew to join us on the first full day of the event and you can watch the driving highlights below:

The program

Our guests began the event outside the beautiful Hotel D’Angleterre in downtown Copenhagen, where the cars were displayed in front of a gathering crowd. Every point of the journey – even the underground parking garage – proved to be a much appreciated photo opportunity for both the owners and Scandinavia’s dedicated car-spotting community.

Guests stayed in Copenhagen overnight and then travelled through the city and over the spectacular Öresund bridge into Sweden. After clearing passport control with only minor delays (everyone likes the cars, including passport officers), we enjoyed a country drive through Skåne to Angelholm, where lunch was served at Station 8, right inside the Koenigsegg factory.

Damp weather didn’t dampen the spirits for after-lunch activities with the Koenigsegg test track coming to life as 15 Koenigseggs took to the track in the same session – an unprecedented scene that brought smiles to the faces of all concerned.

Guests took another back-road route (in the wet) through to Båstad and then on to the Torekov Hotel and Spa for the evening.

The next morning saw another drive, this time directly to the ferry terminal in Helsingborg, where we caught a quick ride to Helsingor on the Danish side. Videos are available online showing the ferry loading, which was rather fun.

Back in Denmark, we took the coast road down to beautiful Kokkedal Castle estate. We had a special Koenigsegg lineup in front of the manor and guests enjoyed watching both the cars and a polo exhibition tournament taking place on the day.

Guests stayed at Kokkedal that night and of course, it would be impolite for us to comment on who had the best singing voice, nor who worked hardest cutting up the dance floor the night before at dinner in Båstad.

Needless to say, a brilliant time was had by all. 16 Koenigseggs participated in various events within the tour with some great driving in the world’s best sports cars, entertaining company, great scenery and wonderful food.

    Amazing sight and sound! Just wondering what the collective noun would be? A clutch of Koenigseggs?

      The music was put together by Christian and Halldora’s son, Sebastian. You can look for his other work on Spotify, I believe 🙂

    Hey Mr. Wade!

    Wowweee!
    That picture at the head of this article is just about the most artistic, picturesque and awe-inspiring picture I’ve ever seen, hands down! It’s even better considering the fact that my two favourite cars were the cherry on top of the photo!

    I also couldn’t believe my eyes when it said,”lunch was served at Station 8, right inside the Koenigsegg factory”. Hmmm…..I wonder if Mr. von Koenigsegg felt particularly lax about protocol, no offense. I’m pretty sure the onlookers and guys who ferried the “Konvoy Of Koenigseggs” thought they were dreaming when the cars lined up to board the ferry. Heck, I’m sure that this was the first time all the cars put together actually outvalued the ferry! 😀

    My congratulations to every lucky Koenigsegg owner who was able to join the first ever Koenigsegg owners tour and it is my shared hope that we see events like these more often!

    Congrats again,
    Nimalan S. R.
