Koenigsegg is a mythical creature in the automotive industry, as it is extremely rare and nothing else is completely comparable to the mysteries surrounding these spinning masterpieces of Sweden. Recent models such as Agera RS, Regera, Gemera and Jesko have received a lot of exposure on YouTube, but older models haven’t received that level of attention. Everything changes today. JWW, Because he had a special opportunity to build an intimate and personal relationship with the CCR.
A sequel to Koenigsegg’s original model, the CC8S, the CCR was manufactured in only 14 cases from 2004 to 2006. This particular car was manufactured with only five right-hand drive specifications, and the exclusive rights to this car are even rarer. In addition, it is the only Koenigsegg car completed in Koenigsegging Green. After the family horse stables, the paint was not randomly selected, especially because this striking shade was on the jockey’s clothes.
McLaren F1 fans have “blamed” the CCR for taking the title of the iconic supercar, the fastest mass-produced car in the world. The record-breaking Koenigsegg reached 241.01 mph (387.87 km / h) on the Italian Nardo truck in February 2005 and headed for the Geneva Motor Show a month later. Note – F1 remains the fastest naturally aspirated production vehicle ever manufactured.
Even by today’s standards, the CCR remains an absolute beast, with a properly deployed 4.7-liter V8 engine and supercharged pair. It produces a whopping 806 horsepower and 679 lb-ft (920 Newton meters) and is sent to the rear wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission with long gear levers for quick access to the driver’s hands.
These healthy outputs translate into twisting performance in just 3.2 seconds from 0 to 62 mph (100 km / h). Given that the CCR had a manual gearbox, the acceleration is even more impressive, so there is no launch control to do all the hard work. According to the Koenigsegg spec sheet, it ran 1/4 mile in 9 seconds at 146 mph (235 km / h). Interesting Fact-Returns a fairly decent 13.8 miles (17 liters / 100 km) per gallon in a combined cycle.
Amazing stats are backed by a spectacular design that includes a nifty dihedral synchro helix door that characterizes the Koenigsegg model. This particular car was built in 2005 and still uses the original tires 15 years later, but it didn’t stop. JWW Because I’m having fun with the tracks later in the video.
