There are but a few certain universal truths. Among them: locking yourself out of your own vehicle sucks. That fact is accurate whether your keys are sitting in the ignition of your '89 Ford Escort or your Koenigsegg CCR. Just ask the owner of this particular Swedish supercar. While at a track day, the owner shut the door with the keys lounging contentedly in the ignition, and the car did what it's supposed to do by locking everything up tight. Rather than call up a local locksmith, the owner worked with a set of coat hangers to pull the keys from their resting place and out of the passenger side window.

While whoever filmed the clip of the owner fishing out his keys calls the scenario a fail, we're firmly of the mind that this is the biggest win that could have come from the event. There's no pampered owner throwing a fit or attempting to bust out the side glass, just a dude trying to get into his car. Check out the clip below for yourself, complete with a few shots of the machine on track.
