What is it?
The Koenigsegg CCX is a hypercar produced from 2006 to 2010 known for being the second fastest car in the world after the Bugatti Veyron at the time of its debut. The CCX was produced in 49 units (including special editions) at a starting price of around 700.000€/$.
The aesthetics of this car are typical of Koenigsegg, a brand that has always focused more on technical skills than on beauty. The design is in fact without frills and highly devoted to aerodynamics; the Cx of this car is in fact just 0,29. There is, however, an unprecedented system called “Dihedral Syncrohelix Doors” that opens the doors in a vertical direction. Measuring 4,19 meters in length and 1,99 meters in width, the CCX is a small hypercar.
The dashboard and the steering wheel are internally covered in carbon fiber. Again the design is simple and straightforward, and no superfluous technologies have been implemented in order to mantain the CCX as light as possible. However, it is possible to choose the finishes of the seats, which can be covered in alcantara, leather or tempur, a material developed by NASA that guarantees optimal comfort by adapting to the shape of the passenger’s body.
The frame and the bodywork are entirely made of carbon fiber, this is also one of the reasons for a dry weight of only 1175kg (which remains very similar even in the special editions). The second main reason for the exceptionally low weight is the engine, which, despite being an impressive 4.8-liter V8, weighs just 210kg thanks to the use of carbon fiber and titanium in its construction. This engine has a power of 806HP in the “basic” version; 888HP in the “Edition” and 1032HP in the “Ethanol”. The Ethanol shocked the world with a top speed of 410km/h and a 0-100km/h in just 2,9 seconds.
