Koenigsegg CCR – World’s Fastest Car
CCR comes from the stables of Koenigsegg Automotive – Sweden a company founded in 1993 by Christian von Koenigsegg; specializing in producing high performance cars. Koenignsegg Automotive was initially based in Olofstrom but they later shifted their operations to Angelholm (a city in
CCR a quick Glance
Engine: Supercharged V8 | Power: 806 hp | Torque: 920 Nm Acceleration: 0-100 km/h: 3,2 s | Topspeed: 395+ km/h | Chassis: Carbonfibre semi-monocoque | Body: Carbonfibre, Kevlar Aerodynamics: 0,297 Cd | Weight: 1180 kg |
Fluid is one word that comes to mind when we think of CCR, one glance at it and it becomes clear that this machine means business it built for only one purpose and thats Speed. The car is by no means small infact when seen from certain angles it seems a bit on the bulkier side but that in no way compromises its Aerodynamics which is proven by a very low drag coefficient of 0.30. . Despite its deceiving looks the CCR is surprisingly light; Both the body and chassis of a Koenigsegg are made of extremely lightweight carbon fibre composite, reinforced with Kevlar and aluminium honeycomb. Koenigsegg claims a dry weight of 1175kg which means when the car is loaded and fueled it might weigh somewhere around 1275 kg (kerb weight).

CCR Gyan !!!
- The Koenigsegg badge was designed in 1993 by Jacob Låftman, based on the shield of the Koenigsegg family. The shield has been the family's coat of arms since the 12th century when a family member was knighted by the German-based
Holy Roman Empire.
- The CCR styled by Christian von Koenigsegg himself
- Christian von Koenigsegg, was just 22 years old when he founded Koenigsegg Automotive in 1993
- It took Koenigsegg Automotive 8 years to roll out their first supercar.
- The first car produced by Koenigsegg Automotive - the CC8S was delivered to a client in March 2002.
- Koenigsegg does not ship its cars to the
, because Koenigsegg's cars have not met the stringent U.S. safety and emissions standards. U.S.
- The CCR is the only car with 806 horses on demand; which is nearly double the number of horses in Porsche's top-of-the-line 911 GT3, and also more powerful than Mercedes-Benz' super car, the SLR McLaren.
- As a youngster, Christian von Koenigsegg was captivated by a cartoon series in which a repairman souped up his bicycle into an ultimate racing machine capable of competing with cars. This is said to be the inspiration to break the world speed reconrd.
- The present Koenigsegg facility located in Angelholm in southern
, was once home to a unit of the Swedish Air Force. The company builds its cars by hand in a hangar that used to house JAS 39 Gripen fighter jets. Sweden
- To honour the Swedish Fighter Jet Squadron No. 1, (Johan röd) which had earlier occupied the current facility of Koenigsegg, the CCR is adorned with a symbol of a ghost, the symbol of the squadron.
