It’s good to be back home after a few days away. While I was gone, though, I missed out on posting Episode 3 of the Inside Koenigsegg series from Youtube.
This episode takes you into the paint shop for a good look at the preparation and painting process. As with all of these episodes, you’ll end up with an appreciation of just how detailed these amazing cars are.
200 hours of polishing per car? Here’s a few other fun facts from my own previous visits to Koenigsegg – the time each car spends in the paintshop isn’t measured in hours, it’s actually measured in weeks. And the guy who runs the whole show was the former lead painter at Rolls Royce.
My favourite part of the video is “weight in the right places” – referring to 1 extra kilogram that I’m quite sure Christian lost plenty of sleep over.
