Lake Forest Sportscars Of Chicago Is America’s Third Authorized Koenigsegg Dealer

Follow Viknesh

When it comes to exclusivity in the auto world, it’s hard to match Swedish supercar marque Koenigsegg. The company builds just a couple of dozen cars per year and that means there’s likely to be only a handful of cars in any given market. But Koenigsegg is starting to expand its business. At the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, Koenigsegg showed off two distinct models for the first time, the Agera RS track-focused model and Regera hybrid, and unlike previous cars from the brand both of these beauties are being made available in the U.S.

Koenigsegg has also expanded its dealer base here, although that only means growing from two dealerships to three. The latest is Lake Forest Sportscars in the greater Chicago area, which will serve as the factory authorized Koenigsegg dealer for the Midwest. It joins previous stores Momentum Auto Collection in the San Francisco area and Manhattan Motorcars in New York City.

“We are delighted to work together with such a passionate and well-respected dealer such as Lake Forest Sportscars,” Koenigsegg CEO and founder Christian von Koenigsegg said in a statement. “Lake Forest Sportscars’ passion, skill and local footprint will lay the foundation for a successful collaboration, going forward getting our exciting cars in to the hands of Midwestern sports car connoisseurs.”

Other marques the dealership handles include Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lotus and Maserati.

As mentioned above, Koenigsegg’s current lineup consists of the Agera RS and Regera, although the Regera isn’t in production just yet. Both cars produce well over 1,000 horsepower and both have price tags that exceed $2 million. A dealership in the U.K. recently listed a Regera at $2.36 million. Sadly for the multimillionaires out there, the One:1, potentially the world’s fastest production car, is sold out. Just six of them were built, one of which was snapped up by an American buyer.
