Koenigseggs are already an extremely rare sight, so in 2008 we definitely took notice of the special edition cars called CCX Edition and CCXR Edition . This takes the already hardcore supercars and makes them even more track focused, and also gives the CCX Edition 82 more hp over its regular counterpart.
So with a limited edition model of an already rare car, we knew there would only be a handful produced. The plan was to have the 888 hp CCX Edition limited to 14 cars and the 1018 hp CCXR Edition limited to 6 cars. At a price of €1,330,000 ($1,820,000) and €1,500,000 ($2,050,000) respectively, exclusivity was guaranteed.
But now times have changed. It’s a tougher economy worldwide, and Koenigsegg is turning in a new direction previewed by the all-electric Quant shown in Geneva. Because of this the Edition models will now become even more rare, with production cut to 6 cars total.
The planned numbers are now 2 for the CCX Edition and 4 for the CCXR Edition. Call it a victim of a bad economy or a turn to green cars, either way the owners of CCX and CCXR Edition models are now ensured to be part of an extremely exclusive crowd.
