The company was founded in 1994 in Sweden by Christian von Koenigsegg, with the intention of producing a "world-class" supercar. In March 2009 the Koenigsegg CCXR was chosen by Forbes to be one of the most beautiful cars in history.
On June 12, 2009 the media reported that Koenigsegg Group, consisting of Koenigsegg Automotive AB, Christian von Koenigsegg, Bård Eker and a group of investors led by Mark Bishop had signed a letter of intent with Saab to take over the brand from General Motors. General Motors confirmed on June 16 that they had chosen Koenigsegg Group as the buyer of Saab Automobile.
The badge that identifies the Koenigsegg car brand was conceived by designer Jacob Låftman. It is a shield based on the Koenigsegg family’s own coat of arms since the 12th century. The phantom insignia on the Koenigsegg logo is a tribute to the Swedish air force squadron that operates out of the airbase where Koenigsegg’s factory is also located (they use the ghost as their emblem).
