As requested by certain clients and customers, Koenigsegg is introducing a Limited Edition version, available in both CCX (14 models) and CCXR versions (six models). The Koenigsegg Edition is powered by a remapped 5.0L twin supercharged Koenigsegg engine, with differing outputs for each model. For instance, the engine in the Koenigsegg CCX Edition – running on regular petrol – develops up to 888 bhp.
On the other hand, the engine on the Koenigsegg CCXR Edition -- a designated Bio flexi fuel car -- can run on E85, E100, regular 98 octane petrol, or a mixture of the three. This engine still produces 888 bhp when running on regular petrol, but could develop a whopping 1,018 bhp when filled with the higher octane E85 fuel, which results to higher compression, increased spark advance and higher boost pressure.
Both limited edition versions have been track-tuned, thanks to the installation of modified shock absorbers, anti-roll bars, stiffer springs, a lowered chassis and reset dampers. Moreover, the Koenigsegg Edition feature optimized rear wing, a larger front splitter, a nolder and front winglets that all work to create as much downforce as possible. In fact, the Koenigsegg CCXR Edition creates over 350 kg of downforce at 250 km/h.
Koenigsegg was able to verify and optimize the vehicle's aerodynamics both in CFD and during live testing on its test track in Sweden and on a number of proving grounds in Europe. Clients for the Koenigsegg CCXR Edition could avail of the optional yet free Michelin Cup Tires that wrap a set of optimized forged wheels. These Michelin Cup Tires allow the Koenigsegg CCXR Edition to reduce braking distance while delivering quicker acceleration from a halt.
Moreover, these tires allow for higher cornering G-force in dry conditions. With all these elements, the Koenigsegg CCXR Edition is able to deliver a top-class performance and comfort whether on the track or on the road. Koenigsegg CCXR Edition proudly sits on top of the supercar category in terms of power-to-weight ratio, downforce, aerodynamic balance and chassis stiffness. The Koenigsegg Edition features a clean design with a clear lacquered finish, thereby leaving onlookers to feast on the exquisiteness of the carbon fiber construction.
Koenigsegg took great effort to match and combine each individual section of the vehicle's carbon fiber bodywork to create a strike pinstripe effect. This process takes almost twice as much time as assembling a typically painted carbon CCX body. The exterior appearance of the Koenigsegg Edition could be further enriched with the addition of optional secondary colors -- dark red, dark silver and pearl white -- for the front splitter, side splitters and diffuser.
Inside, the vehicle features a fabulous leather interior and specially anodized aluminum trim, as well as a redesigned Koenigsegg Chronocluster and center console. Drivers get a distinctly designed forged aluminum steering wheel. Moreover, Koenigsegg Edition drivers could avail of the optional paddle shift. Interestingly, owners of manual Koenigseggs can have their cars modified to feature a paddle shift at a later stage.
Koenigsegg also reworked the cabin of Edition models by featuring color-matched leather carpets, Edition chronograph instrument cluster and Edition side step plates as well as a new Edition only layout for the center console control panels. Featured as standard are carbon wheels, rearview camera, special interior trim and color, Satnav or Bluetooth, complete Inconell exhaust system, and amplifiers.
Interested customers could order the Koenigsegg CCX Edition at EUR1,330,000 and the Koenigsegg CCXR Edition at EUR1,500,000.
