The Koenigsegg Edition has been created to break records in the traditional Koenigsegg way. The aim with the Koenigsegg CCXR Edition is to deliver superior performance - on the track, in a straight line and on country roads - and to do so in style and comfort.
According to our comparative studies, no other supercar can match the Koenigsegg CCXR Edition in terms of power-to-weight ratio, aerodynamic balance, downforce and chassis stiffness. At the same time, the Edition maintains the Koenigsegg CCX's fantastic drivability and its ability to absorb uneven road surfaces like no other supercar.
Both models are fitted with a remapped, 4.8 litre twin-supercharged Koenigsegg engine, and have been track-tuned by the inclusion of modified shock absorbers, stiffer springs and anti-roll bars, reset dampers and a lowered chassis.
Downforce has been enhanced by the addition of an optimised rear wing, front winglets, a larger front splitter and nolder, all of which have been designed to create as much downforce as possible. In total the Koenigsegg CCXR Edition produces over 350 kg of downforce at 250 km/h. The aerodynamics have been verified and optimized, both in CFD and during live testing on the Koenigsegg test track in Sweden and on various proving grounds in Europe.
The clean, Scandinavian design is accentuated by the clear lacquered finish, which reveals the bold, linear beauty of the carbon fibre construction. Each individual section of carbon fibre bodywork has been painstakingly matched and then joined together inside out like a tailored suit, to create a stunning pinstripe effect. The process is so timeconsuming that it takes almost twice as much time to create the clear-coated visible carbon body compared to the normal painted carbon CCX body.
