RAW Design House unveils a radical new Koenigsegg concept by automotive designer Esa Mustonen under the guidance of Christian von Koenigsegg and Koenigsegg’s Head of Design Sasha Selipanov. Simply put, this wedge-shaped, entry-level supercar would be released under a sub-brand called “RAW by Koenigsegg,” inspired by the lightweight Koenigsegg Agera One:1.

Weighing a mere 1,543 pounds, this supercar would produce 700 horsepower and features an F1-style three-seater carbon fiber monocoque. If you’re wondering why the frontal crash structure narrows at the nose, it’s to deflect front impacts to the sides. This is important because due to the three-seat configuration, the driver’s legs are partially inside the car’s nose.
- Build and explore the LEGO Technic Porsche 911 RSR—an icon of innovative engineering and design
- Features aerodynamic bodywork, black spoked rims, working differential and steering, independent suspension and a six-cylinder boxer engine
- Open the doors to access a radar screen, working steering, fire extinguisher system and a track map of the Laguna Seca
I developed this idea that the whole rear subframe and the engine would be fully exposed. The Freevalve engine is a very unique piece of engineering, so I wanted to bring the ‘soul’ of the car to be the focal point of the theme. This is also very beneficial for cooling, and with some correct air channeling, you can prevent it from disturbing the rear aerodynamics,” said Mustonen.
