Press release

On the 4th March 2008, we will be unveiling our latest creation: the Koenigsegg Edition. The Edition will be on show at the Geneva International Motor Show between the 4th and the 16th March 2008.

The Edition is the ultimate supercar – a Koenigsegg at its most extreme - built to break records and deliver breathtaking performance. Only a very few models will be produced, in order to ensure exclusive status amongst supercar owners.

It has a clear, fully visible carbon fibre body, and is available in two versions: the 4.8 litre 888bhp CCX Edition and the CCXR Edition, which can be driven on environmentally friendly ethanol E85 and E100 fuels, as well as regular petrol. When run on E85 fuel the 4.8 litre engine produces 1018 bhp.

Furthermore there are many unique details on the car. The new forged, machined and polished aluminium Edition wheels for example, which are extremely light and incorporate optimum brake cooling. The bright, polished surface of the wheels was chosen to maximize the contrast against the exclusive black clear carbon body.

The Edition interior is clad in striking red leather and features a special version of the Koenigsegg Chronocluster including a redesigned centre console. All the interior aluminium parts are anodized in a specially formulated Koenigsegg Edition tone that has a unique and purposeful look.

The Edition has a high performance specially developed rear wing, a larger front splitter plus side front strakes. The aerodynamics have been verified and optimized in CFD and in real life on the Koenigsegg test track in Sweden and on various proving grounds in Europe, in order to achieve maximum downforce. Together with the lower ride height, modified shock absorbers, modified springs and anti roll bars, this makes the car perfectly suited for both serious track fun and winding country roads. There is also the option of Michelin Cup tyres and paddle-shift if so desired.

Prices for the CCX Edition start at 1,330,000 Euros net.
Prices for the CCXR Edition start at 1,500,000 Euros net.

Both cars come with a five-year factory warranty.
