Super cars have to be more than just fast cars.
Let's face it, most super car owners will be driving it on city streets & on highways, places with legal speed limits.
Super cars have to look good. They have to look real good. That's why people buy them, so they look cool driving a cool-looking car.

Koenigseggs are UGLY.

I know looks are subjective, and some people may think that Koenigsegg makes good-looking cars, but those are the same types who think Alienware PCs are cool-looking. those people are idiots with no class, taste, or style.

But maybe I'm just too hung up on good design.

I'll bet employees get a free one. After all, they probably can't afford to buy one, and they can't exactly have employees driving cars from other manufacturers, right? I mean, that would show very little confidence in the company they work for. Hence, free hypercar.

Hmm... No "careers" page.

Little known fact, Christian Von Koenigsegg was really, really unsteady until an airodynamic carbon-fiber prostetic hump was implanted on his back.

You should probably provide examples of what cars you think look good.

I think Koenigsegg cars look awesome. Like Pagani, they truly look like a supercar. That does mean they look slightly bizarre and outlandish, but that's the point in my opinion.

They look far better than the Veyron, SCC Ultimate Aero, and Hennessey Venom.

Clearly you & I have very opposite tastes in cars. I actually think the Bugatti Veyron and Hennessey Venom are great examples of good design (esp. the Veyron, the Venom is a little over the top). .

My favorite is the Audi R8. I also like the Porsche 918 a whole lot. And the Nissan GTR isn't bad. The Lamborghini Murcielago is lovely. The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is also beautiful.

Compared to those, the Koeniggsegg looks like a bad high-school project.

I toured the Pagani factory via Motorstars (along with Lambo, Ducati and a visit to the Ferrari museum). HIGHLY recommended, got to meet Pagani himself. I was surprised at how small Pagani's factory was, but it was super cool seeing the workers lay the carbon fiber and get to look at the autoclave, among other things.

/No factory pics for obvious reasons
//Valentino Balboni also happened to be walking through the Lambo factory, so I got to meet him as well
