Koenigsegg’s first mass-produced supercar

Founded in 1994 with the precise goal to produce a world-class supercar, Koenigsegg launched its first production model in 2002. Dubbed CC8S, it was the result of eight years of development and an improved version of the CC prototype, which is said to have been inspired by the McLaren F1 and Ferrari F40. The CC8S was followed by the CCR in 2004, but it wasn’t until 2005 that Koenigsegg introduced its first state-of-the-art supercar, the CCX.

Short for Competition Coupe X, the CCX was built to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the completion and test drive of the first CC prototype and was the company’s first global car. Designed and engineered to comply with global safety and environment regulations, especially those required by the U.S. market, the CCX features significant alterations compared to the CCR. It also had a brand-new, designed in-house engine, a choice of two transmissions (a first for Koenigsegg), and ran of 91 octane fuel, making it suitable for the United States and meeting the strict Californian emission standards.

It was also the first Koenigsegg to be produced for more than a coupe of years, with the last example being built in 2015. A total of 30 CCX units were produced in ten years, plus another 19 special-edition models such as the CCXR, CCXR Edition, CCXR Special Edition, and CCXR Trevita. One CCX was used for crash tests and one was kept by the factory as a test car. Some CCX cars have later been upgraded to CCXR specs.

All told, the CCX was an extremely important car for Koenigsegg, one which ultimately helped the Swedish company to develop the Agera and the One:1. That’s why we decided to have a closer look at the supercar that basically turned Koenigsegg into a global manufacturer.

Koenigsegg CCX Totaled in Mexico

Koenigsegg CCX Totaled in Mexico

Rare supercar is destroyed beyond recognition

When it comes to supercars, we know that they’re not only incredibly fast, but also very exclusive and hugely expensive. The latter "feat" is responsible for most of us not being able to afford one, but a high sticker doesn’t necessarily mean that each supercar ends up in the hands of a responsible owner. It’s no longer big news that supercars get smashed due to excessive speed, and we’ve seen plenty of rare vehicles being trashed beyond recognition recently. After seeing a Huracan break in half and burst into flamed in Chicago last month, now we got word of a Koenigsegg CCX being destroyed in Mexico.

Granted, the CCX is already ten years old as a nameplate and it might not be as spectacular as the newer Agera, but it’s definitely a rare breed. What’s more, most of them, including the one crashed in Mexico, are unique, meaning that once they’re gone, you won’t find another one like it. The bad news is that the CCX that was totaled following the high-speed crash was also built to custom specification and judging by the photos, it seems unlikely to be rebuilt.

The supercar hit a curb and rolled multiple times before coming to a halt, but what remained behind looks nothing like a CCX except for the seats and part of the engine hood. The front end and the roof were completely destroyed, while the wheels and most suspension components were ripped apart from the car. Unfortunately, such crashes also come with casualties, and this CCX had two. Both occupants have been transferred to a nearby hospital, and even though there’s no word on their condition, it’s a miracle that they survived the impact.

Hopefully both the driver and passenger will recover after the crash, which can be said about the CCX, one of only 49 such vehicles ever built.

2009 Koenigsegg CCX For Sale

2009 Koenigsegg CCX For Sale

It is Chassis No. 067 and is located in Woodlands Texas

Crave Luxury in Woodlands, Texas has some interesting vehicles in its current inventory. Models like a 1986 Porsche 911 Turbo DP 935, 2011 Aston Martin DBS Volante, or a 1965 Superformance Cobra Mark II are hard to ignore. But, there’s one on the showroom floor that is sure to draw a bit more attention, and it is a 2009 Koenigsegg CCX.

This specific model is painted “Candy Bottom” red and black with carbon fiber accents. On the inside, you’ll find all black interior. It appears to be garage kept and in mint condition with only 1,721 miles on the clock. It’s safe to assume it is unaltered, which means it is powered by a 4.7-liter V-8 that generates 806 horsepower and 693 pound-feet of torque. For those of you who don’t know, that type of power pushes the CCX to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds, 124 mph in 9.8 seconds, and 186 mph in 29.2 seconds. Top speed is said to be more than 245 mph.

At the time of this writing, Crave Luxury has the car listed for $1.45 million on “internet special,” so if you are interested, you may want to contact the dealership here, before stopping into the showroom for a meet and greet.

Christian Von Koenigsegg Drives The Bugatti Veyron Against Koenigsegg CCXR: Video

Christian Von Koenigsegg Drives The Bugatti Veyron Against Koenigsegg CCXR: Video

We would never accuse Koenigsegg founder Christian von Koenigsegg of sandbagging, but if ever there were an opportunity, this would be it. During its 2Fast Touzani Tour, online tech retailer Trust brought its 1,000-horsepower Bugatti Veyron to Koenigsegg headquarters in Sweden for some hypercar drifting antics and an impromptu rolling-start drag race between the Bug and a 1,000-horsepower (on E85) 2007 Koenigsegg CCXR. The twist? Christian von Koenigsegg was the one driving the Veyron! Surely, Christian isn’t the kind of guy who would use less than 100 percent of the Veyron’s power to let his own car win. Or is he?

Actually, the somewhat unscientific race was of little consequence and probably just for fun. Mr. Koenigsegg is one of nicest, most affable guys in the auto industry, and seems up for just about anything involving cars. Both the Veyron and CCXR are a few years old now, and had Koenigsegg brought a 2015 Koenigsegg One:1 to the fight, then the Bugatti would have been a spec in its rear-view mirror, and the same would probably go for the CCXR it had gone up against whatever Bugatti has next in its product pipeline.

Still, it’s always fun to see two incredibly fast cars go at it on a long strip of tarmac. So, place your bets and click through to see which comes out on top.

Jay Leno Talks with Christian Koenigsegg About The Trevita CCXR: Video

Jay Leno Talks with Christian Koenigsegg About The Trevita CCXR: Video

Boutique supercar companies don’t have model lineups like major manufacturers. There are often only a few units produced in between tweaks and/or upgrades, and it’s often worth checking back in with a given car, even if it looks the same as it did the last time you read or saw a review of it. That’s why Jay Leno is showing us a Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita. Of course, the Trevita is a few years old at this point, but it takes a diehard fan to keep all of the Koenigsegg model variants straight, and it’s possible that you missed this one.

The CC was first built as a prototype all the way back in 1996. It was ready for production by 2000, and the first deliveries were made in 2002. That was aeons ago in supercar years, but the car was updated at least once every other year for the entirety of its production cycle. The CCXR was rolled out in 2007, just one year after the CCX, just to give you an idea of how quickly it evolved. The Trevita, unveiled in 2009, is mechanically the same as the “regular” CCXR, but the extremely limited production car uses a special white carbon fiber for the bodywork. It’s all very impressive, especially from such a small firm.
Perhaps the best part of the video is you get to meet Christian Koenigsegg himself.

Koenigsegg Agera N Vs. Koenigsegg CCX: Video

Koenigsegg Agera N Vs. Koenigsegg CCX: Video

Runways and supercars go together like Jeremy Clarkson and a hot meal – they just work.

Hence, we have events like Vmax200. Roping in some of the fastest cars on the planet, this UK-based acceleration fest has been running strong since 2002, playing host to countless exotics and top speed monsters through the years. It’s one of the few places where the full range of high-dollar mega machinery can actually use all that potential lurking under a heavy right foot, which means it’s exactly the kind of place you’d expect to see YouTube horsepower-hound Shmee150.

With his trusty camcorder at this side, Shmee was on point to record the battle of the winged Swedish meatballs, as two of Koenigsegg’s finest lined up for a showdown. In one lane, we have the CCX, an older model with a blown 4.7-liter V-8 producing 800 horsepower and 679 pound-feet of torque. Acceleration figures include a 0-to-62 mph time of 3.2 seconds, 0-to-124 mph time of 9.8 seconds, and a top speed in excess of 245 mph.

In the other lane, there’s the dark horse of the race: the one-off Agera N. Information is hard to find on the N, but from what I can tell, it’s basically a modified Agera S.

Compounding the complexity, we find ourselves with a wet track and live flagger dropping his arms for the off. With mere mortals behind the wheel, getting a decent reaction time and traction at the launch will be difficult at best.

So then – who will win? Let the bench racing flame war begin.

Koenigsegg Announces Certified Pre-Owned Program

If you want to buy a new Koenigsegg supercar, you’ll need to have prepared anywhere between $1,5 to $2 million, depending on the model and market. Even more, a special-edition Agera S recently sold for $5.3 million, so one can easily see that for ordinary people, these are no bargains.

But now that the company produced over 100 cars, it wants to introduce a "pre owned certification program," for those customers that can not afford a brand-new supercar, but opt for a previously owned one. For example a pre-owned CCR is listed at €400,000 (about $550,000 at the current exchange rates), which is considerable less than a brand-new Koenigsegg.

In order to be eligible as a certified pre-owned car, "it needs to undergo an arduous inspection process as well as be updated and refurbished according to criteria set by Koeningsegg Automotive AB." If approved, that vehicle will receive a two-year factory warranty and free service. Another condition of making the cut; the vehicle had to be originally purchased from an official Koenigsegg representative.

Video: Koenigsegg CCX in action at Nurburgring

When it comes about cool supercars, Koenigsegg is definitely one of our favorite brands. So you can imagine why we get pretty excited when we see one in action around the Nurburgring race track.

This video shot by Youtube user cvdzijden shows a Koenigsegg CCX. In fact he say that this is a Koenigsegg CCX 7031 Streetfighter prototype, but offered no other details on it. Too bad! Next to it , Koenigsegg was also present with a red Agera R. In the video you hear the great engine sound and also the start-up sound. You see it also in action on the Green Hell!

And, for those of you who have forgotten, the CCX is powered by 4.7 liter V8 engine that delivers an amazing 806 HP. The car is capable to hit a top speed of 245 mph!

Video: Bugatti Veyron vs. Koenigsegg CCXR

Video: Bugatti Veyron vs. Koenigsegg CCXR

First and foremost, we’d like to admit that we aren’t exactly huge fans of the Bugatti Veyron. We respect the fact that it is one of the most powerful cars in the world with a turbocharged 16 cylinder engine and 1001 HP, but a car with a price tag as high as the Veyron’s should have been a little easier on the eyes.

Koenigsegg models, on the other hand, have a wonderful combination of beauty and power wrapped up in one car. We could go into the sheer beauty of the Agera, but that’s not what we are here for. We are here to talk about the CCXR - one of the stars in this video. It features a 1018 HP V8 engine and can hit a top speed of 250 mph.

Regardless of which supercar tickles your fancy, both are present in this video, in pure white exterior paint finishes and delivering pure thrills as well.

Video: A Supercharged Chevrolet Corvette Z06 takes on a Koenigseg CCXR: Shock Ensues

Video: A Supercharged Chevrolet Corvette Z06 takes on a Koenigseg CCXR: Shock Ensues

A standard Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is powered by a 7.0-liter LS7 V8 that delivers a total of 505 HP, which isn’t bad at all. Of course, supercharging this bad boy to an impressive 700 HP makes the American sports coupe jump a few levels to possibly match wits with Sweden’s Koenigsegg CCXR and its 1024 HP 4.7 L twin-supercharged V8 engine.

Place these two cars side by side in a one mile drag race and more than likely, onlookers would place their bets on the CCXR. Before that happens, however, it’s important to know that typically the Koenigsegg does the 1/4 mile in less than 11 seconds and in this video, it only managed to do it in 12.4 seconds. Will the driver factor affect the outcome of the race? Watch the video to find out!

Barely used and upgraded Koenigsegg CCX up for sale

Barely used and upgraded Koenigsegg CCX up for sale

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.

Video: Koenigsegg CCXR blasts off inside a tunnel

Video: Koenigsegg CCXR blasts off inside a tunnel

Some supercar videos really don’t need a whole lot of introduction. This is one of them. So in the briefest of ways to describe it, here’s a Koenigsegg CCXR that was captured driving through a tunnel in all its roaring, spine-tingling glory.

If you’re a fan of supercars roaring through enclosed spaces, then this video will absolutely make your day. There aren’t a lot of supercars that have the cache of a Koenigsegg CCXR. The first part of the video will treat you to the sound of the CCXR’s power as it roars along a tunnel. Incredibly enough, towards the latter part of the video, the camera finds its way inside the CCXR where you can hear its unbridled roar even more.

So turn up the volume and put your seats in their upright position, fellas. The sound of this Koenigsegg CCXR inside this tunnel is going to knock your socks off into tomorrow.

Koenigsegg founder personally delivers Trevita CCXR supercar to Jay Leno

While Conan O’Brien continues to display loving affection towards his beat-up 1992 Ford Taurus SHO, his one-time colleague and now fierce rival, Jay Leno just keeps on adding to his already massive car collection.

The latest vehicle to make its way to Jay Leno’s oversized garage is a Koenigsegg after Christian von Koenigsegg himself - yes, he’s the founder of the supercar brand - paid a visit to Leno in the comedian’s South California home to personally deliver a Koenigsegg Trevita CCXR.

Next to the 2010 Agera, Koenigsegg also revealed a new special edition at the Geneva Motor Show. Limited to only one unit and built for a wealthy customer in Brazil, the CCXR Platinuss E100 (named after a Brazilian dealership) had to be customized so it could use bio-ethanol.

But despite the modifications the CCXR Platinuss E100 still develops 1018 hp. The customer also wanted a larger front splitter and the color has been custom painted.

NY dealer crashes $1 Million Koenigsegg CCX

NY dealer crashes $1 Million Koenigsegg CCX

The Koenigsegg CCX is one of the rarest automobiles in the world. The Swedish super car maker only produces 25 examples of their mid engine V8 powered 800+ HP speed machines per year, and of all the CCX’s that are created, an even more limited amount of 10 Koenigseggs make it stateside. So if you have ever seen one in person, you can consider yourself to be a very fortunate individual, and if you have ever had the chance to get behind the wheel then you ought to know just how lucky you are to have driven a million dollar super car.

However luck had nothing to do with the NY based dealer who managed to do a little front end damage to this particular blue 2008 CCX. The worst part is that the now partially destroyed super car already had an owner, and when you do any kind of damage to a seven figure vehicle, you can only imagine just how much this little mess up will cost to fix. Not to mention that while destroying the dreams of their client and losing a customer in the process, the dealer who got a little too close to the guardrail also managed to damage a 2009 Porsche 911 GT2 in the process.

Thanks to Antoine Dominic for the photo.

Video: Digital rendering of Koenigsegg CCX takes a page out of Gran Turismo

If you watch this video and you think that what you’re looking at is a real Koenigsegg CCX, then you’d be wrong. Dead wrong.

The video is actually a rendering of the Koenigsegg super car, which was created by Proper Graphics, a graphics studio based in Belarus. It looks stunningly real, doesn’t it? Don’t worry, you weren’t the only ones fooled.

The amazing detail Proper Graphics did with the CCX is nothing less of stunning, not to mention realistic. The digital rendering of the car seamlessly integrates itself with its surroundings, giving the visual feel that the car is in fact real.

From what we’ve heard, the model these guys used in creating this rendering is up-to-par with Gran Turismo 5, although it should be noted that these guys have no affiliation whatsoever with GT5.

Nevertheless, we have to give props where props are due. Proper Graphics did an amazing job with this rendering of the CCX, so much so that a lot of us we’re convinced – at first - this was the real deal.

Wheels of Fury

Wheels of Fury: Five supercars that will get you noticed – in more ways than one.

No other piece of technology offers as much ’status points’ as having a slick set of wheels to show off. You can have a state-of-the-art handheld device or a lavishly set-up home entertainment system and it’ll still pale in comparison to someone who has a car that not only catches attention, but illicit howls and whistles in the process. Consider yourself even luckier if people discreetly stand near your precious bad boy and, in true guerrilla fashion, they snap a photo of their mugs together with your car. That’s when you know you’ve got the status symbol only others can dream of.

Speaking of dreams, run down this list of five supercars that, for the most part, you’ll only find in your dreams. Don’t fret, however. These cars are readily available – if you have a deep set of pockets. But if you don’t have wealthy parents or a trust fund to dig up on, you can settle for reading about these awe-inspiring supercars and dream that one day, you’ll end up in the wheel of one of them.

The SSC Ultimate Aero is far and away the one car that will leave all others with their gas pipes hanging loose. It has a galloping 1183 horsepower, can reach 0-60 in 2.7 seconds, and it can run up to 600 kilometers per hour – faster than the previous world-record holder, the Bugatti Veyron. The SSC Ultimate Aero certainly performs like its name and it can be yours if you have $654,400 in your bank account. As we’ve said, keep dreaming.

The Bugatti Veyron is a car even the rich and famous can only have as posters on their wall. It may have been trumped by the SSC Ultimate Aero in sheer speed, but the Veyron is still hands-down the ultimate combination of speed, power, and empty bank accounts. Pumping at a top speed of over 400 kilometers per hour, the Veyron has a sleek aluminum, narrow angle W16 engine and a menacing 1001 horsepower under the hood. While it’s a safe bet that your ‘pogi points’ will jump through the roof if you have one of these, you’ll have to be ready to shell out a staggering $1.7 million to get your hands on this supercar – which incidentally, only has 300 models all over the world.

If there’s one car that can threaten the SSC Ultimate Aero as the fastest in the world, it’s the Koenigsegg CCX. Made in the land of Volvo – that’s Sweden, if you didn’t know – the CCX comes with a 90 degree V8 engine, capable of pumping as much as 900 horsepower. Just like the Ultimate Aero and the Veyron, the CCX can reach speeds of up to 400 kilometers per hour, and it is widely expected that with a few more fine tunings, it could reach unimaginable speeds of up to 500 kph.

The Saleen S7 Twin Turbo is more than just a sexy name for a car. With a Twin Turbo All Aluminum V8 engine that comes with a 750 horsepower, the S7 is one car that will definitely get you noticed. Imagine yourself driving down the expressway at over 380 kilometers per hour, leaving behind every other car eating your gravel. That’s what it’ll feel like when you’re behind the wheel of an S7. Now, imagine yourself crying in your bedroom, holding your credit card bill in your hand. That $555,000 charge on your card is sitting in your garage. Get the drift?

No list is complete without the supercar of supercars. The venerable McLaren F1 may have inspired a new generation of supercars, but nothing still commands the same amount of respect as the F1. The McLaren F1 is loaded with a BMW S70/2 60 Degree V12 Engine with 627 HP, allowing it to reach speeds of up to 380 kilometers per hour. One of the first cars to ever use the carbon-fibre monocoque, the McLaren F1 was made with only the finest materials in the world. By finest we mean carbon fiber, titanium, gold, magnesium, and kevlar. No wonder it comes with a tag of $970,000. While other supercars can make varied claims on their product, there is still – and will always be – one McLaren F1.

For sale: Koenigsegg CCXR Special Edition

If 1018 hp, top speed of 257 mph, and a 0 to 60 time of 2.9 seconds were not enough reasons to want a Koenigsegg CCXR Edition, just last week we found out the car has just become even more rare. Production plans have been cut from six cars to four.

This should make the CCXR Edition hard to find, right? Well a German exotic car dealer currently has one of the ethanol powered supercars on the lot. So grab the private plane and €1,550,420 (currently about $2,100,000) — that’s the price of admission to an exclusive club that now can be counted on one hand.

Koenigsegg cuts production for CCX & CCXR Edition

Koenigsegg cuts production for CCX & CCXR Edition

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.

$1M cash or Koenigsegg CCX?

$1M cash or Koenigsegg CCX?

Suppose you won the lottery, and you’ll have the chance to choose: car or cash? $1 million or Koenigsegg CCX? What would you choose? Hard decision, no?

To help you make you decision let suppose you;re home town is only having 12-kilometer road. What would it be then? Move to another town, no?

This lucky guy, Louie Edgi, has won a Koenigsegg CCX sports car from the Cash and Cars Lottery, but he chose to take the money instead. The CCX, one of the lottery’s grand prizes, is unique in Canada and considered to be the second-fastest production car in the world.

To comment his decission, Edgi said: "The car is a Swedish make; it’ll do 400 kilometres an hour. I don’t see anybody would need that. It’s worth a million dollars, so they gave me the option of taking the car or the cash. But living here in Norman Wells, I can’t really see myself needing a car."

Koenigsegg CCXR Edition & Pagani Zonda F Carbon to appear at MPH

To be a presenter on Top Gear TV is the dream job for most of us. Racing supercars one day and challenging your friends in a beater the next is not a bad way to earn a living. But there’s only one Jeremy Clarkson, and you’re probably not him. So the next best thing if you live in London is the MPH show where two of the most exclusive supercars in the world: a Koenigsegg CCXR Edition and Pagani Zonda F Carbon will appear as well as Top Gear Live (the TG boys put on a live performance.)

The current stock market has probably eroded away your supercar money, so instead you Londoners can head to Earl’s court on October 30th for the MPH show. The Swedish 254+mph 4.8-liter V8 Koenigsegg CCXR Edition featured at the show may make you want to mortgage your house to put a down payment on the £1.5 million rockstar.

If you need to go more budget-minded, the £668,000 Pagani Zonda F Carbon will only cost the whole family’s education fund. But he 7.3-liter V12 that produces 650 hp will make you feel better about having illiterate kids.
