What Is Your Daily Car If You Work At Koenigsegg As Its Head Test Driver?

Gerard July 9, 2015 14:05

It must be a dream come true to be the head test driver at Koenigsegg which is exactly who Robert Serwanski is.

Serving the Swedish hypercar maker since 2011, the Swede himself has been behind the wheel of some of the most exciting Koenigseggs ever to be produced including the One:1.

Part of his daily duties include piloting the most exotic of cars as quickly as possible, full of danger and peril in the process. Want a sample of what that’s like? Look here. Note the no-hands driving at high speed.

Or watch the man at work:

Now you might think a man working for Christian von Koenigsegg will get a highly exotic office car to serve as his daily driver, right?

Think again because Serwanski’s daily driver is a simple Mazda 3 with a 2.2-litre diesel engine and an automatic gearbox. The choice of a Mazda isn’t surprising considering he race Miatas before joining Koenigsegg. In fact, he has an NC Miata in his garage.

That is certainly a far cry from the over 1,000hp monsters he drives at work daily but we reckon after a hard day’s “work”, a Mazda 3 would be good ride to chill out in on the way home.

According to Jalopnik, Serwanski also drives 193km to work daily and a clean diesel engine would certainly be better in terms of mileage as well. 

About Gerard

My first impressions of a dream car should be a ridiculous top speed with physics defying cornering capabilities, namely the Ferraris, Paganis and what not. Deep down, I just want something that makes you feel special when you drive it, expensive or not.
