Koenigsegg Preparing “Mission 500” Concept for Geneva

According to rumours, the Swedish manufacturer will unveil, at the Geneva Motor Show, the “Mission 500” concept car.

  • Koenigsegg will showcase a new concept at the Geneva Motor Show;
  • This concept, dubbed “Mission 500” is to answer to Bugatti’s Chiron Super Sport 300+;
  • The Swedish manufacturer wants to reach 500 km/h.

Back in August, Bugatti broke the 300-mph barrier with a pre-production vehicle of a Bugatti Chiron derivative, reaching 304.773 mph (490.484 km/h). A month later, the French carmaker launched the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+, based on the record-holding car.

Thereby, Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti said, after breaking the record, the company “will withdraw from the competition to produce the fastest serial production cars.”

Enter Koenigsegg. According to The Supercar Blog, the Swedish manufacturer has big plans for this year’s Geneva Motor Show.

Indeed, the blog is relaying an inside scoop they got from the company about an upcoming concept car. All we know so far is the possible name of this concept, the Koenigsegg “Mission 500”. Why “Mission 500”? Because Koenigsegg is aiming at beating Bugatti’s record with this new concept and is eyeing 500 km/h.

The Supercar Blog also reports that the “Mission 500” could be based on Koenigsegg’s latest hypercar, the Jesko, which made its public debut last year at the Geneva Motor Show.

The 2020 Geneva Motor Show will begin on Thursday, March 5th, 2020, just after the media days. We should learn more about the Koenigsegg concept then. Stay tuned!
