Koenigsegg’s message: Skips SUV – but maybe a terrain version?
Almost all car manufacturers have entered the SUV world because the customer demand is so high. This also applies to exclusive car brands such as Rolls-Royce and Lamborghini.
But the Swedish brand Koenigsegg does not intend to go that route. Christian von Koenigsegg has admittedly launched a four-seater GT model in the form of Gemera, but there is no question of a high-built crossover – regardless of whether customers like the idea. He doesn’t like the aerodynamics and high center of gravity of the SUVs.
– An SUV is to create something that will behave badly from a driving dynamic point of view and then try to fix it. I have never been attracted to it.
However, Christian von Koenigsegg is not entirely unaware of the idea of creating a tougher off-road version of Gemera that could fit in the tough Paris-Dakar rally.
– It will not be an SUV but a really tough “Mad Max” off-road car with super performance that you can also drive on the road. But really you should be out on the dunes with it.
