If you’re into supercars and hypers and the like, you’ll no doubt be one of those people who will answer motoring trivia questions instantly, and you’ll probably know all about the logo the company uses on all its cars. To gain valuable trivia knowledge, read on. The well-known ghost logo used by Swedish niche automaker Koenigsegg has an interesting origin story that ties back to the location of their factory and its history. The logo actually originates from the Swedish Air Force's Ghost Squadron. Koenigsegg's factory is situated at an ex-military airbase in Ängelholm, Sweden, which was formerly home to the F10 wing of the Swedish Air Force. The F10 wing, also known as the "Ghost Squadron," operated from this base from 1945 until its decommissioning in 2002. The squadron's emblem was a ghost, a symbol chosen to represent their stealth and prowess in aerial combat. When Koenigsegg acquired the airbase for their manufacturing facility, they adopted the ghost emblem as a nod to the history and heritage of the location. The ghost logo symbolizes the company's commitment to high performance, precision, and innovative spirit. It also represents a connection to the aeronautical history of the site, reflecting Koenigsegg's focus on advanced technology and engineering excellence. In essence, the ghost logo pays homage to the legacy of the Ghost Squadron and serves as a unique identifier for Koenigsegg, signifying their dedication to creating high-performance supercars with cutting-edge technology and a nod to the history of their home. It’s also pretty cool to use on all sorts of products and marketing materials, especially cool Koenigsegg merchandise. And car care products. This new range of car care products was named after the logo, and so it goes under the name of Ghost Gleam. The products are to be used exclusively in the preparation of Koenigseggs in its Gripen atelier and by Koenigsegg representatives around the world.

“We have exceptionally exacting standards at Koenigsegg. Given this, we only recommend using proven, top-quality treatments that are safe for the materials we use. That is what we have developed with Ghost Gleam. The products are a joy to use, environmentally benign and the finish is showroom-level amazing!” says Christian von Koenigsegg, founder and CEO of Koenigsegg Automotive.

Ghost Gleam is a collaboration between Koenigsegg and Tershine, a Swedish company that develops world-leading vehicle rinse and detailing products. Every Ghost Gleam formulation is unique to the Ghost Gleam range and has been use-tested for suitability on Koenigsegg’s full range of surface materials. It is safe for use on Alcantara, KNC carbon fibre, painted surfaces, ceramic brake discs, aluminium, rubber seals, etc. The product formulations, colours, and scents were developed by Koenigsegg in collaboration with Tershine and are unique to Ghost Gleam. The practical, ergonomic and striking bottle is a bespoke design from Sebastian von Koenigsegg and is protected by Koenigsegg. Importantly, all Ghost Gleam products are formulated to be safe for both the environment and the user. Every product is 100% free from PFAS and volatile organic compounds and is biodegradable.
