Koenigsegg knows where to turn for future design ideas
Student Esa Mustonen penned the Koenigsegg RAW as his design thesis
Mid-engine hypercar weights just 700 kg.
The Koenigsegg RAW isn’t a concept imagined by a team of high-priced designers and engineers, it’s the work of student Esa Mustonen.
The sharp, angular Koenigsegg RAW represents a next generation of hypercar with even less weight and a lot of power. The RAW develops 690 bhp from Koenigsegg’s Freevalve engine which isn’t a lot by hypercar standards, but it also weights just 700 kg.
A carbon fiber chassis helps keep the weight low. The cockpit features a three-seat layout like the famed McLaren F1. Rear-hinged scissor doors give the driver and passengers access to the cockpit.
The car’s designer named the car after the design house where it was completed, RAW by Koenigsegg. The project was Mustonen’s thesis project.
The back of the car with the exposed carbon fiber chassis is particularly stunning. We wonder if parts of the car, like the flared side panels or the rear LED tailight will make it onto future Koenigsegg designs. Or they could go full Cybertruck and recreate the design as is. Were just not sure about the ground clearance…
