It’s going well with Koenigsegg, the Swedish car builder is aiming for a sales record of 50 cars this year and at the Geneva Auto Show they presented one of our favorite cars of the show: the Koenigsegg CCXR Edition. With it’s full carbon fibre body and 4.8 litre engine which can be driven on environmentally friendly ethanol fuels as well as regular petrol, it’s one of the most extreme supercars on the market today. When run on ethanol E85 fuel the 4.8 litre engine produces 1018 bhp. With regular fuel it still produces a very impressive 888 hp.
The CCXR Edition also includes new forged and polished aluminium Edition wheels which are extremely light and incorporate optimum brake cooling. Most eye-catching part is the new carbon wing which, together with lower ride height, modified shock absorbers, modified springs and anti roll bars, adds to improved downforce.
The remarkable CCXR Edition interior has been finished in red leather and features a redesigned centre console. Throughout the car you will find anodized aluminium parts that are only available for the CCX and CCXR Edition.
The production of the CCXR Edition is limited to 6 ‘editions’. From the ‘normal’ non-bio fuel CCX Edition only 14 will be build, adding to a total of 20 Koenigsegg Edition models.
