Koenigsegg’s first car, the CC8S, was launched in 2002 but the company’s story goes back much further than that. Recently, CEO and founder Christian von Koenigsegg revealed the inspiration behind the Swedish supercar marque and how he actually went about raising funds to start it.

Honda is bringing a radical roadster concept called the Project 2 & 4 to next month’s Frankfurt Auto Show. The concept is a joint project between Honda’s motorcycle and automobile divisions, and it may just preview a future production model.

Hyundai will unveil its own concept in Frankfurt but the set of wheels the Korean automaker is bringing to the German show is definitely not production bound. It’s a new supercar with race car design and sustainable technology, and it’s been developed to help launch Hyundai’s N division performance sub-brand.
