What happens when the Swedes take on the might of the supercar fraternity? Answer: the Koenigsegg. Christian von Koenigsegg's operation is way more than Ferrari meets Ikea – his products exude a devilish attention to detail and some hair-raising stats (see below). Right up there with the fastest cars on the road today, but the Swedes are likely to remain a bit-part player in this industry.

Make and model





Top speed



4700cc V8, 665bhp, 553lb ft 




 Another holder of the production car speed record at
 241mph in 2005


 The early, blue-collar Ford V8 engine, now heavily worked over


 Veyron go for half the dough


Remarkably well sorted and long-lived for a supercar from an independent maker. The green ethanol version makes over 1000bhp but as a 50-grand option takes the price north of £500,000. Ouch
