Christian von Koenigsegg Knows Where All His Supercars Are At All Times

Stories about Big Brother watching over us make us cringe. We don’t want some government bureaucrat or corporate lackey knowing where we are and what we’re doing at all times. But what if that Big Brother were, say, Christian von Koenigsegg?

That might be another story, because who among us wouldn’t want the man behind some of the world’s most amazing supercars as their own older sibling – or guardian angel, as the case may be?

As it turns out, Koenigsegg does play a bit of that role with his customers, thanks to a unique app to which apparently only he has access.

Speaking with CarBuzz at the Geneva Motor Show last week, CvK revealed that he has a unique app on his phone that allows him to see where all the cars his company has built are located at any given time. (Or at least, those cars that are equipped with GPS trackers, at any rate.)

“It’s technically possible to place a camera inside the vehicles,” said Christian, “and I could see the drivers, but that’d be creepy.” As it is, though, the vehicle locator ought to help the company assist its elite cadre of owners with things like race track settings, arranging service, or (we’d imagine) even finding their multi-million-dollar car if they somehow forgot (or somehow had moved it from) where they’d parked it.

    “make us cringe. We don’t want. government bureaucrat or corporate lackey” out dated stereo types much or agenda driven? thought so. As far as Koenigsegg, pretty sure he knows whats right for the cars he produces and how to provide amazing customer service.

      He needs a light grey suit, and a long haired white cat on his lap first. Anyway if I had such a car I would not mind him keeping an eye on me. Rather that, than being fed to his sharks with “lasers” attached.

        They couldn’t find sharks so that had to use mutated sea bass…

          It is a simple request to get sharks with a frickin laser beam attached. Even if they are ill-tempered.

    This is old news. Do you not remember the guy on Twitter bragging about “his black Koenigsegg” and Christian called him out over it?

    thats a bit creepy.. i’d understand if there was a koenisegg centre that tracked these vehicles whereabouts as a paid service, but for the bald man in charge to track them is just plain strange voyeuristic fetish behaviour.
