When a car already has 1018 horsepower and runs on E85 ethanol, itâ€™s hard to top it, but Koenigsegg has done just that with the CCX and CCXR Edition.
The aim of the Edition is to â€œdeliver superior performance – on the track, in a straight line and on country roads – and to do so in style and comfort.â€
Both are fitted with the 4.8L twin-supercharged engine, and have been track-tuned with modified shock absorbers, stiffer springs, anti-roll bars, reset dampers, and a lowered chassis.
The carbon fiber bodies have also been enhanced for additional downforce with an optimized rear wing, front winglets, and a larger front splitter and nolder, all left in raw carbon fiber form so that you can appreciate their beauty. And because itâ€™s raw carbon fiber, â€œeach individual section of carbon fibre bodywork has been painstakingly matched and then joined together inside out like a tailored suit, to create a stunning pinstripe effect. The process is so time-consuming that it takes almost twice as much time to create the clear-coated visible carbon body compared to the normal painted carbon CCX body.â€
The interior features special anodized aluminum trim and a redesigned Koenigsegg Chronocluster and center console to â€œconform the Editionâ€™s exclusive status.â€
Get in line, because only 14 of the CCX Editions will be made, though thatâ€™s more than enough when compared to the six CCXR Editions that will ever see the light of day.
