The Koenigsegg CCXR (Competition Coupe X) is the latest and most expensive super car from Koenigsegg. The X from the CCXR abbreviation marks the 10th anniversary of the completion and test drive of the first CC vehicle in 1996. The CCXR is an "eco-friendly" version of the CCX, powered by a modified twin-supercharged V8 engine from the CCX, converted to use E85 or E100 ethanol fuel as well as standard 98 octane petrol.
The Koenigsegg Edition has been created to break records in the traditional Koenigsegg way. The aim with the Koenigsegg CCXR Edition is to deliver superior performance - on the track, in a straight line and on country roads - and to do so in style and comfort.
According to our comparative studies, no other supercar can match the Koenigsegg CCXR Edition in terms of power-to-weight ratio, aerodynamic balance, downforce and chassis stiffness. At the same time, the Edition maintains the Koenigsegg CCX's fantastic drivability and its ability to absorb uneven road surfaces like no other supercar.
Both models are fitted with a remapped, 4.8 litre twin-supercharged Koenigsegg engine, and have been track-tuned by the inclusion of modified shock absorbers, stiffer springs and anti-roll bars, reset dampers and a lowered chassis.
Downforce has been enhanced by the addition of an optimised rear wing, front winglets, a larger front splitter and nolder, all of which have been designed to create as much downforce as possible. In total the Koenigsegg CCXR Edition produces over 350 kg of downforce at 250 km/h. The aerodynamics have been verified and optimized, both in CFD and during live testing on the Koenigsegg test track in Sweden and on various proving grounds in Europe.
The clean, Scandinavian design is accentuated by the clear lacquered finish, which reveals the bold, linear beauty of the carbon fibre construction. Each individual section of carbon fibre bodywork has been painstakingly matched and then joined together inside out like a tailored suit, to create a stunning pinstripe effect. The process is so timeconsuming that it takes almost twice as much time to create the clear-coated visible carbon body compared to the normal painted carbon CCX body.
The exquisite leather interior, specially anodised aluminium trim and redesigned Koenigsegg Chronocluster and centre console combine with our unique forged aluminium wheel design to confirm the Edition's exclusive status. Standing beside the car, you would be forgiven for thinking it is already in motion - such is the dynamic presence of this breathtakingly stunning vehicle. The looks can be further enhanced by adding optional secondary colours for the front splitter, side splitters and diffuser, with a choice of dark red, dark silver and pearl white.
The Koenigsegg CCXR Edition comes with the free option of Michelin Cup Tyres, and a unique set of wheels designed to optimise their size and characteristics. These state-of-the-art tyres reduce braking distance, deliver faster acceleration from standstill and higher cornering G-force in dry conditions.
The Koenigsegg CCX Edition runs on regular petrol and produces 888 bhp, whilst the Koenigsegg CCXR Edition has been modified as a bioflexfuel car, and can run on E85, E100, regular 98 octane petrol (Europe) or a mixture of the three. When run solely on petrol, the engine produces 888 bhp, but the higher octane E85 fuel makes higher compression, boost pressure and increased spark advance possible, enabling the engine to deliver a staggering 1018 bhp.
For the first time we can offer paddle-shift as an option for the Edition cars. In fact all manual Koenigsegg cars can now be altered to paddle-shift at a later stage, if so desired by the customer. Production of the cars will be strictly limited: just 14 of the Koenigsegg CCX Edition and 6 of the Koenigsegg CCXR Edition will be made.
