Making 280mph Capable Carbon Fiber Wheels - /INSIDE KOENIGSEGG

I found this very interesting.

What I love about Christian von Koenigsegg and Horacio Pagani is that they create their own supercars - cars that that they envision in their minds. I would not hesitate to say that Koenigsegg and Pagani are industry leaders in high performance supercars as well. They are both innovative in completely different ways. It’s great to see that they are always both fused in the whole process of making their cars and are always able to talk about them in documentaries, interviews, videos etc. You can’t say the same for any other car manufacturer, but I guess because Pagani and Koenigsegg are still relatively new as car manufacturers the founders are still around. But still, the fact that they are arguably the newest supercar manufacturers shows how far they’ve come in a small amount of time. Arguably, Pagani and Koenigsegg are the two brands that you’d probably associate with the best cars ever made. I like the fact that they they’re not making fuckin’ SUVs or cars for the masses because they don’t care about you. Their vision is to make the best car how ever long it takes and that is what keeps their exclusivity and appeal.

Kudos to them for being alive.

I Know it’s hard to see but in the first pic is my tire mark, I went off the road after locking up my rear wheel at about 50mph, barely missed some boulders and trees and hit the edge of the road, pretty much caught air and Travis Pastrana’d the shit outta my daytona until somehow getting it back down the hill, after I realized I was alive and pulled the bushes outta my bike I realized there’s not even a single scratch on it. I got extremely lucky today, that easily could have been the cliff on the turn just before, I had hit that turn all day for 3 days straight now knee down with no issues, humbling reminder that this shits dangerous, wear your gear and stay safe!

Holy shit. Glad nobody got hurt. :S
