Review

At the 2004 Geneva Motor Show, Koenigsegg unveiled its model CCR, which was the world’s fastest production car at that time. However, the car only held the world speed record for a brief period of time and it is now in third position.

This supercar has only been in active production from 2004 until 2006, in Ängelholm, Sweden. The CCR was also the first production vehicle to carry a gauge that indicates the horsepower usage.

History, Development and General Characteristics

The Koenigsegg CCR was first seen in 2004 at that year’s Geneva Auto Show. Later that year the supercar’s production run was inaugurated, breaking the Guiness World Record for the fastest street-legal production car – beating the McLaren F1 by 0,62 mi/h (1 km/h).
Nevertheless, the CCR has since been outdone by two even faster production cars – the Bugatti Veyron (2005) and the SSC Ultimate Aero TT (2007); therefore, it is now the third fastest one.

The Koenigsegg CCR has its roots on the preceding CC8S, only to deliver a higher performance through its more powerful features.
Koenigsegg stopped manufacturing the CCR in 2006.

The Koenigsegg CCR is provided with a V8 rear mid-engine of 4.7-litre displacement. Its power output stands at a maximum of 806 hp, making the supercar reach its top speed at 245 mi/h (395 km/h) and go from 0 to 60 mi/h (97 km/h) in just 3.2 seconds.
The CCR is rear-wheel driven and works with a 6-speed manual transmission.

Body and Design

The Koenigsegg CCR is a 2-door, 2-seater coupe with removable hardtop, often also categorized as a (2-door) roadster.
Aesthetically, the CCR is mostly notable for its large, high-tech doors that open by rotating up and forward.
The CCR is also printed with the phantom insignia that evokes the ghost symbol of the Swedish Fighter Jet Squadron that formerly operated on the current Koenigsegg facilities.

The story goes that Von Koenigsegg got inspired by the Norwegian animated movie ‘Pinchcliffe Grand Prix’ when he was just a child and ever since he dreamt of building his own supercar – just like the main character in the movie, which is a bicycle repairman, one day builds his own racing car. Since his early youth, Christian seemed to very bright in coming up with design and technical solutions, although he was never taken very seriously. Anyway, he didn’t give...  more
