The Koenigsegg CCX was the company’s first ‘global car’. Succeeding the Koenigsegg CCR, it was specifically built to comply with the global safety and environmental regulations. The vehicle was first displayed at the Geneva Motor Show in 2006 and boasted several modifications from the CCR, including an enlarged chassis, restyled lights and redesigned bumper just to suit the American market.
Under the hood, the Koenigsegg CCX features a 4.7-litre, twin-supercharged V8 engine that produces an astonishing 806 hp and 920 Nm of torque. The CCX can travel from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h in 9.8 seconds. The top speed stands at 395 km/h. A total of 48 CCX-Series cars have been produced by Koenigsegg between 2006 and 2010. Of these, 30 are the ‘standard’ CCX.
Below in the gallery is the first production Koenigsegg CCX, in blue exterior paint and featuring chassis no. 32. It has been on display at Koenigsegg’s office in Sweden over the past few months and will now be replaced with the orange CCXR (the “environmentally friendly” version of the CCX), with chassis no. 69.
