2007 Koenigsegg CCXR Edition

Nov 26, 2007 – Koenigsegg have released an upgraded version of their fastest car called the CCXR Special Edition. The standard model debuted earlier this year at the Geneva Auto Show and this new Special Edition improves upon its theme. It has the same 1018 horsepower engine, but with an upgraded body and interior.

The most obvious change is a contoured rear wing which is permanently fixed by long stantions. This was probably motivated by Top Gear and Jeremy Clarkson who requested a larger wing to steady the car during its second visit at the show. Beyond the wing, only detail changes such as uncovered headlights, color-coded carbon fiber and new suede seats are fitted.

Underneath the skin, the CCXR remains largely unchanged, but we now know that the Bio Fuel V8 produces 1018 bhp @ 7200 rpm which is good for 250 mph and 0-60 in 2.9 seconds.

Pricing is 1 500 000 EUR.
