We’d love to have the opportunity to purchase a supercar out of what seems to be sheer boredom and then let it sit in our garage because we are too busy driving around in all of our other fantastic cars. It may seem like an unbelievable scenario, but we come across it all of the time. Our latest supercar abandonment comes as a Koenigsegg CCX that was purchased back in 2008 for about $650,000. The car is based on the first U.S. spec CCX imported into the US and is largely constructed of carbon fiber weighing in at just 2,600lbs. The owner of this vehicle didn’t even bother taking off the factory window sticker from his princely purchase. The Koenigsegg is said to have very few miles on it, with most of them attributed to the post-production tests. Seriously? Are they kidding?
And it gets even better. The standard CCX is powered by a 4.7 liter V8 engine that delivers 806 HP, but when the supercar was handed over to Scottsdale Ferrari, they decided to tinker around with the barely used machine and got it to produce 980hp! Now with this added power, this phenomenal black on black Koenigsegg is set up with a price tag of $1,150,000 because, well, Scottsdale Ferrari assumes they can turn it over for that kind of crazy profit. If this were a cartoon, the head honchos at Scottsdale Ferrari would have large dollar signs in their eyes every time they looked at this vehicle.
