Koenigsegg CCX Models
The Koenigsegg CCX looked like its predecessor, the CCR, but it was no mere evolution as the CCX was a completely new car. It was slightly larger, designed from the ground up with worldwide homologation in mind, the goal to sell to the U.S market. It was an astonishing car, and the CCXR was even more impressive. The CCXR took Koenigsegg’s potent twin-supercharged V8 to a whole new level thanks to a flex-fuel sensor and hardware allowing the car to run on either regular gasoline, E85 (85% ethanol) or any mix in between.
The higher octane rating of E85 fuel lifted the total output of the CCXR to 1,018hp. 2007 saw the Koenigsegg CCGT race car launched, basically a side project for the team that never went anywhere thanks to rule changes. Next up was the Koenigsegg CCX ‘Edition’ and CCXR ‘Edition’ models at the Geneva Motor Show in March, 2008. The Edition models were shod with a beautiful clear-carbon body, Edition 11-spoke wheels, bespoke aerodynamics and specially tuned suspension, with some extra horsepower thrown in for good measure. There were 4 CCXR Editions made, and just 2 CCX Editions.
Koenigsegg announced a limited edition called the CCXR ‘Trevita’. The Trevita featured a special proprietary white carbonfibre weave, developed by Koenigsegg especially for this model. Trevita means ‘three whites’ in Swedish and the original intention was to build an edition of three cars (only two were built). The CCXR Special Edition was specifically commissioned to see off the CCX-range in style before the arrival of the Agera. The Special Edition featured a special double F1 wing, all-clear-carbon body work, Agera-style rear wheel venting, revised aerodynamics, Koenigsegg’s first ever paddle-shift transmission.
