There are tons of reasons why tuning firms decide to provide packages for various cars on the market. Aside from the obvious money-making aspect of the business, tuners feel a certain responsibility to take what an automaker has done and push it further. Most of the time, we understand that these vehicles need a bit of work to make them that much better and we applaud the various efforts provided by these tuning companies in doing so. This latest project by EDO Competition is no different. In their latest attempt to push a car deeper into the realm of awesomeness, the German tuning firm has taken a Koenigsegg CCR and fixed it up with a good ol’ fashioned power boost and a kickass exterior body kit.
EDO’s process with the CCR began with a modified ECU to boost power and a modified drive ratio to allow the vehicle to hit its torque peak earlier. The result is a total of 891 HP - up from the standard 806 HP -, and a reduction in the redline to 7,200 rpm. The six speed gearbox was disassembled in its entirety and the plastic bushings were replaced with Uniball units. All of the work to the engine allows the CCR Evolution to get to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds, to 124 mph in 9.7 seconds, and to 186 mph in 23 seconds.
As for the exterior, the tuner is offering a new set of wheels with a coat of charcoal paint and an updated front end with auxiliary lights. The interior of the Koenigsegg was then covered in Alcantara material and a redesigned center console was added to accommodate a new infotainment system with a reversing camera and a custom-made pouch for the immobilizer remote. The display was integrated into the dashboard.
The total Evolution upgrade package for the Koenigsegg CCR will set customers back 40,000 Euros, or $56,828 at the current rates.
