Are Koenigsegg's and Pagani's legal in the US? I've never seen them at car shows or anything.

Not sure about Pagani but there is a Koenigsegg authorized dealer 30 min away from me.

The car show was called the "palm beach supercar super show" something like that anyway. They travel to 1 or 2 other locations I believe.
The owner of the CCX was standing near his car. He owned an auto transport company called " universal auto transport" based out of NY where he was from.
The CCX still had its window sticker on the windshield it said $800,000 (+ I don't remember the exact figure)

My desktop background was a photo of the Agera X for the longest time, I think it's possibly my number one dream performance car. Koenigseggs stand out at every auto show I've been to; your run of the mill (and top end) Ferraris and Lambos just miss that X-factor that Koenigseggs have in spades.

That was a great episode. It's just incredible the how much innovation is incorporated into these cars.

HHHHNNNNGGGG'd for 30 minutes.

Although the interviewer seemed a little "bleh" when talking with Mr. Koenigsegg himself.

Saw their latest cars at Geneva. This company really is car perfection. The attention to detail and just the overall awe factor when you see the car is just indescribable.
