I have checked the stories about cheaper sport cars from Koenigsegg.

Koenigsegg wanted to buy SAAB, but they weren't allowed to do that of some reasons, which I don't know. SAAB was instead bought by NEV, a Chinese owned consortium making electric cars. NEV has now bought 20% of Koenigsegg and these two companies shall develop new electric/hybrid cars and newer cheaper sport cars. How to interpret what K means with cheaper cars is hard to know, but I interpret it as K will begin to produce cars in a price range equivalent to Ferrari's SF90 stradale, Lamborghini's Aventador, and the McLaren's in the similar price range

A Koenigsegg Jesko begins at 3 million US dollar. A SF90 Stradale starts at 400 000 US

So still too expensive for real car enthusiasts.

I have done further readings about the Ragnarok. It is the Jesko. There were speculations about name of the latest Koenigsegg and car junkies believed K would name it Ragnarok, but the owner, Christian von Koenigsegg named it after his dad instead.

The SF90 Stradale is rather "less expensive" than many cars with a similar power outlet. It has almost 1000Hp and that makes it comparable with the most extreme hyper cars

Btw have you seen the Tesla's pickup truck?

Is that the Tesla pickup that had the window smashed at the launch?

Armor glass is supposed to chatter like that to absorb the force from the impact, but that is when the window is hit by a bullet and not a metal ball. That glass can not stop a 5.56x45 round or a 7.62x39 round

This might give a hint about how the successor of the LaFerrari might look like
