The first customer took delivery of a red Koenigsegg CC 8S at the Geneva Auto Show and four more cars were built that year. Koenigsegg was established in Asia later that year with a premier at the Seoul Auto Show. VWs new luxury car, the Phaeton went on show to the general public for the first time at Geneva whilst Opel unveiled the all-new Opel Vectra, which was available in 4 different body styles, including a sedan and station wagon. DaimlerChrysler’s latest luxury brand, the Maybach, was not exactly unveiled, instead, it was hidden behind a dark glass wall. But the press launch caused a stir nevertheless. Photographers scrambled up against the black screen, desperate to get clean shots of the car.
