I don't know where you get your information from but here is a quote straight from Koenigseggs website. "Koenigsegg differs from other low volume hypercar manufacturers by the fact that Koenigsegg develops and produces its own engine in-house."

Koenigsegg Agera RIt'd break down in a matter of minutes cause it's powered by a ford engine, so no.
Broke some records, and is just plain sexy!
Also, the most powerful engine that ford makes is about 550bhp, whereas the Agera R puts out almost double that at 1115bhp.
Also ford engines aren't too bad. Consider the ford gt.
The CCR used a very heavily modified version of a Ford V8. All of the modifications were carried out in-house by Koenigsegg though. It Should also be noted that the CCR was the fastest car in the world at the time, taking the record from the Mclaren F1 thus the engine was so hevily modified that it was only really a Ford engine by association. It would be like building a ford with the chassis of a ferrari and then claiming you had a ferrari because the 'skeleton' of the car is from a ferrari.
Also, if jeremy clarksons ford gt is anything to go by then the gt is probably not the best example of what ford is capable of.
