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 Scania, Sweden with a population of 21700 and the seat of Ängelholm Municipality, Skåne County).

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).

World’s Fastest Production Road Car

On February the 28th 2005 a Koenigsegg CCR driven by the legendary supercar test-driver Loris Bicocchi broke the record for the fastest production road car in the world previously held by the mighty McLaren F1. The earlier record of 242 mph was set by the MacLaren F1 on the 9 km straight track at the VW Ehra facility in Wolfsburg, Germany in the year 1998. The record stood for 12 years before the CCR clocked 242.42 mph on the Nardò/Prototipo track, a circular track with a circumference of 12.5 km. thus making it the fastest production car in the world.

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 U.S., because Koenigsegg's cars have not met the stringent U.S. safety and emissions standards.

  • 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 Sweden, 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.

  • 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.
