Introduced at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show, the Koenigsegg CCX
holds the prestigious honor of being the third fastest production
supercar, behind the Bugatti Veyron and SSC Ultimate Aero TT.
The Koenigsegg CCX is an impressive piece of engineering, like
the Koenigsegg CCR and CC8S models also offered by the Swedish maker.
Developing 806 bhp from the supercharged V8 engine, and weighing
just 1180 kgs (2601 lbs), the Koenigsegg CCX sprints to 60 mph
in just 3.1 seconds, going onto a top speed of around 245 mph
The Koenigsegg CCX was engineered to comply with US regulations
and appeal to US buyers requirements. As such, the car is 34.3
inches longer than before to comply with rear impact regulations,
and there are US specific side lights.
On the inside, the CCX benefits from an additional 2-inches
of headroom and a new seat design.
The CCX name stands for Competition Coupe X. The CCX marks the
10th anniversary of the completion and test drive of the first
CC maiden prototype, which rolled out from the R&D department
