Swedish supercar maker Koenigsegg are branching out, we are only accustomed to seeing purely performance orientated models coming out of their factory doors but according to reports we will see a more practical four door version unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show next year.

It has been in development for the past two years, but for the project to continue further investment is required which the Swedish believe they are likely to get from the middle east where the brand is most popular.

A clay model of the four door model exists so far and despite their being many resemblances between the new model and the CCX(pictured), it will not use the same engine. The Koenigsegg engineers have been developing a new 700bhp V8 engine solely made of carbon fibre which will enable the model to reach speeds of up to 350km/h. According to our record books, this will make the new four-door Koenigsegg the fastest unmodified production car in the world.

“The four-door will be slightly cheaper than the CCX, and we hope to build 70-80 cars a year”, Andreas Petre, Koenigsegg’s Dubai manager said. Half of those sales are expected to be shipped over to the US, with 30% going to Asia and 20% in the Middles East.

Hey!!! What about us poor folk in Europe?
