Exclusive Access to the Rare Koenigsegg CCXR Edition: Review and Gallery

The CCXR Edition packs a remapped 4.8-litre
twin-supercharged V8, which generates 1,018bhp on E85. Yes, a twin-supercharged
V8!

The chassis has been re-worked and the suspension has been
lowered, both to hone its breath-taking track performance.

Setting a 0-62mph (100km/h) time of just 2.9 seconds and a 0-124mph
(200km/h) time of 8.75 seconds, the CCXR Edition is as rapid as it is powerful. 

At max throttle, the CCXR Edition’s top speed is a whopping
250mph+ (400km/h) without the rear wing, which is some serious pace. It also just
happens to be a good old-fashioned
manual
transmission supercar
as well, adding to the already-thrilling sensation of
the drive as you tear through the gears.

A number of other features have been specifically added to
enhance its performance – including:

Its appearance is unique, as is its presence, being largely
unpainted and practically covered in bare carbon fibre. The visible carbon
fibre is not only lightweight, but it gives the car a distinctive look and
beautifully contrasts with the two bright red seats on the inside.

With its side winglets and unique rear wing, the CCXR
Edition was designed with performance in mind, along with style, comfort and
even a level of practicality that has always been scarce in supercars.

It has a removable roof, which is able to be stowed away
under the front hood lid – a feature which Christian von Koenigsegg included on
his first car designs when he began the company. 

The wrap-around windscreen you see here was also part of the
owner’s original designs, providing drivers with a great view of the road from
the cockpit and giving the inside of the vehicle a far less claustrophobic feel
than you’d expect. That doesn’t mean it’s easy to get in-and-out of with the
roof on, though. 

From the rear, the CCXR Edition simply looks immense –emphasising
its wide and low dimensions that give it a powerful, somewhat intimidating
presence. It was deliberately lowered in ride height, being lower than the
standard CCX, so there’s no illusion here – it puts the driver as close to the
ground as possible to (once again) further refine the driving experience.

The interior is basic, but unlike any other. The centre
console buttons are laid out like an old rotary dial telephone and the gear
stick is as vintage as they come, but there’s something satisfying about the
modesty of it.

With its superb finish, the CCXR Edition perfectly
encapsulates the vision and aspirations of the company as they looked to expand
and take the industry by storm towards the end of the 2000’s.

Due to its individual, extreme design, the CCXR Edition will
never fail to turn heads.

How Much is a Koenigsegg CCXR Edition? 

For such an extraordinary asset, you have to expect an
extraordinary price-tag. This CCXR Edition is worth about £1.8million
($2.3million) – so you’d have to be pretty well-off to even think about buying
one.

Back in 2008, the Koenigsegg CCXR Edition’s price was
originally around £1.2 million ($1.6million) – it has unsurprisingly appreciated
and will only continue to do so. Hypercars appreciate at a rate of knots
nowadays, so those looking to buy one should get it done as soon as possible!

The Future of Koenigsegg and its Current Models

After the CCXR Edition came the Agera, the One:1 and the
Regera – the so called ‘luxury megacar’.

The most recent model to be revealed was pretty special,
even for Koenigsegg’s standards, labelled the Koenigsegg Jesko.

The Jesko was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this
year and it evidently had a lasting impression on all attendees and motor
enthusiasts, including one in particular, Jesko von Koenigsegg – Christian’s
father.

As well as paying homage to the owner’s father, the Jesko
packs a 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine and generates 1,280bhp on standard fuel
and a crazy 1,600bhp on E85 biofuel. It’s also claimed to be the world’s first
road-legal car with the ability to break the 300mph (480km/h) barrier.

Just 125 Jeskos will be created, all of which have already
been allocated to customers. Koenigsegg has no intention of becoming a
mass-production manufacturer, which is what makes it one of the most exciting
and intriguing companies in the motoring world.

What Cars Do the Koenigsegg Family Drive?

You’d expect the answer to be pretty straightforward – Koenigsegg
cars, surely?

Nope! Bit of trivia for you – despite owning the record-breaking
company, Christian von Koenigsegg drives a Tesla and more recently re-purchased
his 1992 Mazda MX-5, which he previously owned many moons ago.

In a world caught up in looking to the future and always
wanting more – we must occasionally raise a glass to what we already have. To
the rare, fascinating, and the beautiful.
