Does anyone know why this car isn't in the game, or for many other games for that matter? Last game I've seen it in was Horizon 2. Why is there no serious racing sims that has the car in the game, is the car not taken seriously??

maybe they want a ridiculous amount of money to license the car, and devs don't want to pay for it

The devs have a finite amount of time, money and people, so they have to make choices. That's basically it :)

A hypercar DLC would be much appreciated after the current season pass is done.

The Lykan was in PCars 1, and I'm glad it stayed that way.

I assume you gave up on Forza as they still have quite a few Koenigseggs in the latest few games, but nothing in any proper sim I don't think

If you have the private number of Christian von Koenigsegg, can you organise a test drive for me? :p

I still haven't gotten my test drive, but once I get one I will ask for you ;) *All I have is a signed card from him thanking me for buying a hat.

BTW I have been following him and his progress since I was in high school and the Koenigsegg CC was first on the scene. Now they have trick rear suspensions for 1000+ hp cars, power to weight ratios that make you weep for joy, single drive transmissions, and carbon fibre everything!!!

why

He, like myself, probably does not like road cars and feels that the dev team would rather spend the licensing budget on actual race cars.

Oh no, I just hated driving it. Road cars are fine.

Oh no, I just hated driving it. Road cars are fine.Lykan was one of those cars that properly tested your skills straight away, So would do one of these Koeniseggs, specially the Koni one. What so bad about that : - D

If he goes to the lengths of sending signed cards for buying a hat, I can only imagine what he must send out when someone buys one of his cars!

Maybe because it's hard to spell it? :P

As much as I like Keonigsegg but I prefer we get racecars. Keonigsegg is only good for straight line speed. If I want to see a Keonigsegg in the game it should be the CCGT.

banner77amc

I think the CCGT is about the closest thing we could possibly get. Even then I think we have a better chance to get the DeltaWing than a Koenigsegg.

Raceroom has one.

Is RR any good? I just purchased Iracing and I'm really liking it. I like that I can actually have a lobby of more than 10 people everytime I race. I'd be lucky to have 5 on PC2. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy the career of the game, just wish the multiplayer was more game controlled instead of user controlled.

- why not K.I.T.T (Pontiac Firebird 1982)
- why not the original Batmobile (Lincoln Futura 1955)
- why not the Mazda 787b Rotary powered Le Mans winner
- why not the A-team 1983 GMC Vandura van
- why not....

If my comment hurt your feelings, I did not mean it in a bad way.
Having said that, I would love to see KITT in this game.

you have a lot more chance of seeing KITT and the A-team van in that crap so-called sim racer called forza 7.

Im glad koenigsegg is not in this game, i just see the cars as overpowered uncontrollable monsters. I haven't got the patience in taming and learning such a car.

There's a Batmobile in the game but instead of Batmobile they call it RWD P30 LMP1 Vulcan Racing for licensing reasons:

Haha, one of those guys.. It's bull mate :) Koenigsiegg has record set on Spa-Francor and will/could probably beat more.. The car has insanely good handling & stability including brake system.

Handcrafted car ftw, swedish gold right there.. Because it's the worlds fastest production car doesnt mean it can't take turns.. Check the Spa record video and the g-force it does in the turns :)

It beat Mclaren's P1 time by 5 seconds. =)

I would personally prefer race cars over anything else,but if the Koenisegg becomes Availiable then Koenisegg me up-I might do 3 corners and then go "I think I'll go back to LMP1"

I haven't got the patience in taming and learning such a car.Well but that may be down to some clear lack of skill at taming these, what you call monsters, or maybe what you say about patience (you may be too used to drive easy GT cars).

Hypercars are the ultimate challenge. GT cars Ladies usually label them as death traps or undrivable monsters, but it's all just coming off either ignorance, fear, or the simple fact they can't drive them at all.

Koenisegg is a mandatory add to the hypercar Road A category, just like The Apollo Enraged and the Lykan, btw both dissapeared from the list when they were alreayd in pc1. Current Pirelli Street tire in pc2 demands this.

Koenisegg is a mandatory add to the hypercar Road A category, just like The Apollo Enraged and the Lykan, btw both dissapeared from the list when they were already in pc1. Current Pirelli Street tire in pc2 demands this.


All of which is your subjective opinion. An opinion I for one do not adhere to.

Koenigsegg might be an essential in your mind, but possibly not for a business decision made by SMS.

It's obvious that some specific cars were not included due to $$$ licensing reasons, but a car like the Koenisegg should be essential in any game that features hypercars, and it's needless to explain the why.

Even the Stig still fears this car hahah. Another huge reason for the car to be there

Maybe because PC2 is a racing sim and a Koenigsegg is nothing else than a flamboyant Supercar or Hypercar. I have nothing against Koenigsegg at all, IMO they make some really serious cars but like I sayd Hypercars and not Racecars.

The only game that is made for road cars in particular that I play is Forza Horizon 3,which isn't meant to be a sim.I would love the Koenisegg in that but in this,no.
