Meet Halldora von Koenigsegg, The Hypercar Wife

With Koenigsegg having grown exponentially over the years, we've had the chance to discuss Christian, the man behind the Angelholm dream, but we never had the occasion to talk about the one who shares and sustains his passion.

Well, here we are, focusing on Halldora von Koenigsegg, the wide of one of the world's most powerful men (we're talking horsepower, not politics here, mkay?).

The 40-year-old is the mother of Sebastian, aged 15 and 10-year-old Samuel, splitting her time between this all-in duty, playing the role of Koenigsegg Chief Operating Officer and Alpraaz president - the second company is Christian's first company, an investment development he founded when he was just 19.

The family photo we can see here comes from a story released by Swedish publication Di Weekend, which also allowed us to take a peek inside Halldora's part of the family garage, which includes a Tesla Model S, a Land Rover Evoque and a Mazda Miata (of course).

While the two got married back in the year 2000, they met two and a half decades ago. Halldora, who comes from an Icelandic family, met Christian in Brussels during their studies.

She admits she didn't get involved in the hypercar business because she had a passion for automobiles, choosing to sustain her life partner's dream instead.

Then again, the go-fast business has clearly gone under her skin and it's enough to see how she compares a customer's car leaving the Angelholm factory with the fatuous launch of a boat to understand that.

Unlike other uber-status automotive-addicted families, such as Google VP Benjamin Treynor Sloss and his @becauseracewife, the Koenigseggs prefer to let Christian be the subject of most media tales, which is why public photos of Halldora are rare - we'll tip our lens to another one of the country's publications (8till5.se) for the second photo showing the two together (the non-orange pic).

With the automaker aiming to boost production to 25 cars per year, the two face plenty of challenges together, so we'll definitely get to talk more about this velocity family in the future.
