Information about Koenigsegg CCR

The Koenigsegg CCR is an automobile made by Koenigsegg. Designed and manufactured in Ängelholm, Sweden, it debuted at the 2004 (13 years ago) Geneva Auto Show. It briefly held the world speed record for a production car. The CCR is currently the third fastest production car in the world, behind the Bugatti Veyron and the SSC Ultimate Aero TT.

Overview

The CCR is based on the Koenigsegg CC8S but is more powerful and has better performance. The more powerful engine of the prototype was made possible by the use of a Lysholm twin-screw supercharger and a titanium exhaust system. This takes the power output to a maximum of 806 hp (601 kW; 817 PS) at 6,900 rpm. Torque is also distributed evenly and peaks at 920 N·m (680 ft·lbf) at 5,700 rpm. This car was the first production vehicle to sport a horsepower gauge - it has since been joined by the Bugatti Veyron.

However, the Lysholm twin-screw supercharger is not used in production cars. According to the official Koenigsegg book (ISBN 91-975178-3-6), it was lumbering and difficult to install in the mid-engined package. The production CCR is equipped with dual centrifugal compressors which are manufactured by Rotrex instead. It provides the same power, but lowers the peak torque point from 5,700 to 5,400 rpm.

Externally the CCR looks similar to the CC8S, but features a new side air-intake design, a tweaked headlight arrangement, a revised rear-end, larger brakes, more power and new front splitters for optimized downforce. Like the CC8S, the CCR is a two-seat coupe with a mid-engine, featuring large, high-tech dihedral synchro-helix actuation doors that open by rotating up and forward.

To honour the Swedish Fighter Jet Squadron No. 1, (Johan röd) which had occupied the current facility of Koenigsegg, the CCR is adorned with a symbol of a ghost, the symbol of the squadron.

On a History Channel special on the CCR (Aug, 2006 (11 years ago)), Koenigsegg states that the base price for the CCR is approximately US$590,000.
