Koenigsegg has been using a thunderous twin turbocharged V8 in its supercars for many years now, putting them first on the production car top speed list with the Agera RS. Hop back to the fledgling years of the company back in the 1990s and you’ll find that Christian von Koenigsegg’s creations weren’t always powered by a 1000bhp+ V8, and instead nearly stole an engine from the world of F1, from Subaru of all people.

True story! Rewind the clock a few years and I actually came incredible close to buying the Koenigsegg CCXR ‘Special One’, but sadly it wasn’t to be. However for my final day in the UAE, waking up to the sound of Formula 1 cars blasting around Yas Marina was not the worst way to begin! Then it was time to say farewell to our RS3 Sedan before heading over to Al Ain Class to explain the story of this particular Koenigsegg…. It has been an incredible trip, covering so many different things from the Dubai Motorshow a few weeks ago right through to the Grand Prix weekend. Along the way I’ve test driven hypercars, enjoyed the R8, TT RS and RS3 from Audi Middle East, travelled to the desert with a Rolls-Royce, and so much more. A huge thanks goes to everyone I’ve met along the way and who has been part of the videos I’ve produced. However, I’m already planning the next Dubai trip, and it’s going to be even bigger, and even better!

PLEASE LIKE AND SUBSCRIBE! ALSO SHARE CAUSE IT HELPS! READ THE DESCRIPTION TOO! Story: He starts-up (Or start-up) the car and gives it a rev then he backs up the car nearly damaging the Murcielago behind him. Next he scrapes his bumper when he leaves and shows off a drift. When he comes around the corner, he does a fly-by. When the light turns green, he does a wheelspin or just a hard acceleration. The end viewers. Oh and I forgot… at the end, a Slammed BMW M5 E60 does a burnout or a wheelspin. But yeah thanks for watching!
