2005 Koenigsegg CCR


Registration no: KN05 EGG Chassis no: YT9MIGOV8L4007018 Price: Refer Department The Koenigsegg project was launched in 1994 in Sweden with the concept to produce the ultimate supercar. Leading the company is Christian Von Koenigsegg supported by his dedicated team of designers, engineers and craftsmen. The first offerings from the newly formed company was the Koenigsegg CC 8S, presented to the public at the 2000 Paris Motor Show. The car created a storm with its restrained good looks and supercharged 4.7 litre, 8-cylinder engine delivering an astonishing 655bhp at 6,800rpm and 750Nm at 5000rpm. Modifications and improvements were made to the CC 8S with the aid of Loris Biccochi, world renowned test driver with experience from Lamborghini, Ferrari and Bugatti. For many manufacturers the kind of performance offered by the CC 8S would be more than adequate; 0-62mph in under 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 240mph. But Christian Von Koenigsegg wanted more, and more importantly knew the car could handle it. In 2004, all development effort was concentrated on the CCR, the new 806bhp model that was presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March of that year. The CCR has all the features of the CC8 S, but with more refined air intakes, larger brakes and small body modifications to optimise down force as well generate a more powerful engine. The CCR body is constructed using state of the art technology using pre-impregnated carbon fibre/Kevlar and lightweight hard-foam sandwich reinforcements. The chassis is a semi monocoque design, again made of pre-impregnated carbon fibre. This use of advanced materials gives the CCR a kerb weight of just 1180kg. The engine is a V8, cast in aluminium, with 4 valves per cylinder and carbon fibre cam covers. The mighty engine features a dry sump lubrication system and dual Rotrex centrifugal compressors with 1.2 bar boost pressure with intercooler. Outputs make outstanding reading; 806bhp at 6900rpm and 678ftlb torque at 5700rpm. Acceleration is other worldly with the 0-62mph sprint coming up in 3.2 seconds and the standing quarter mile dispatched in just 9 seconds flat. Power is fed through the wheels via push rod operated double wishbones front and rear with adjustable Ohlins shocks which provide the CCR with outstanding handling and composure under heavy breaking and hard cornering. The CCR is one of the world’s most powerful road cars but the company had other targets in their sights, namely the world production car speed record. This record, held by the McLaren F1 was there for the taking, and take it did. The CCR smashed McLaren’s official record of 386km/h and set the bench mark to an unbelievable 388km/h! Coys are proud to present this astonishing piece of automotive excellence. It was produced in 2005 and has covered less than 5,994 miles from new, hence the car being described by the vendor to be in excellent condition throughout. It is finished in ‘Koenigsegg Racing Green’ with a contrasting black alcantara and leather interior. It should be noted that this is the only road car available in this colour scheme and so represents an incredibly rare opportunity to buy into the Swedish dream at the top level. It comes as standard with many features such as electric windows and air conditioning but also has many optional extras such as a bespoke interior and custom paint, removable targa roof (with bespoke cover) as well as reversing cameras and a lap-time transponder. The vendor is just the second owner with all maintenance taking place at Broughtons, the exclusive UK distributor based in Pangbourne, Berkshire. Fully trained mechanics are stationed there and operate in a near surgical environment. With production volumes that ran at only 20 units per year and a basic list price that was over £400,000, this car presents a superb opportunity to purchase a CCR, with registration KN05 EGG and which can be enjoyed instantly at a price well under the current market value.
