Initiated by Koenigsegg‘s new Head of Design, Sasha Selipanov, the #Koenigseggsketchchallenge has prompted a slew of designers to dream up some wild rides based on the Swedish car company’s unrivaled aesthetic. Of the various concepts that have surfaced is Mitsbushi designer Maximilian Schneider’s Konigsei concept, which follows his ever-popular Mazda RX-10 Longtail Vision concept.

Schneider’s love for performance and design blended together after finding inspiration from an egg, eventually leading to the hyper-exotic Konigsei. “My plan was to take a funny, light-headed inspiration and to try to shape that into a viable product,” he shared about the process. Trademark Koenigsegg qualities like a wrap-around windshield and ultra-wide body seamlessly blend together to make the protruding cockpit.

The passenger compartment is further made out of a recycled egg-shell composition, allowing for a light and durable build that houses the main suspension and chassis. This is met with a 6.4-liter hydrant-fueled V8 that outputs 1,618 horsepower, pushing the low-slung, aerodynamic monster from 0-62 MPH in just 2.8 seconds, with a drag-limited top speed of 274 MPH.

Take a detailed look at the Konigsei concept above.
