Edo Competition’s tuners used their expertise on the Koenigsegg CCR Evolution, boosting the power and performance of the Swedish supercar. Priced at EUR40,000, this upgrade program enabled the supercar to have an output of 891 horsepower at 6,835 rpm and 900 Nm of torque at 6,275 rpm.
In particular, Edo Competition optimized the engine by installing two Rotrex superchargers and remapping the control unit. Edo gave the car a better set of brakes while also fine-tuning the car's directional stability beyond 300 km/h (186 mph).
To improve acceleration and drivability, the top speed was slightly reduced from 390 km/h (242 mph). Aesthetic modifications include auxiliary front lights, and its wheels were given one coat of charcoal paint. The interior of the Koenigsegg CCR Evolution also received modifications.
Alcantara can be seen all over the cabin and the center console had been redesigned to fit a new infotainment system with a reversing camera and a custom-made pouch for the immobilizer remote. The display was also integrated into the dashboard. The TPM system gives the driver information on tire pressures and temperatures.
The Koenigsegg CCR is a creation of Swedish supercar maker Koenigsegg, with design and production done at its base in Angelholm, Sweden. First unveiled at the 2004 Geneva Auto Show, the Koenigsegg CCR used to hold, albeit for a short time, the world speed records for a production car.
Although the Koenigsegg CCR is derived from the Koenigsegg CC8S, it is more powerful and more dynamic in terms of performance. This is partly thanks to a high-performance engine made more potent by a Lysholm twin-screw supercharger and a new titanium exhaust system. This engine develops 806 hp (601 kW) in max output at 6,900 rpm and 920 Nm (678 ft.lb) of peak torque available at 5,700 rpm.
According to Koenigsegg, the CCR has a theoretical top speed of over 385 km/h (240 mph), which should make it the fastest road car in the world. Later versions of the supercar, like the Koenigsegg CCX, are powered by the same engine that uses a different supercharger. This version employs twin Rotrex centrifugal type superchargers that allow the engine to provide the same max output but lower peak torque point (from 5,700 to 5,400 rpm).
When viewed, the CCR may appear similar to the CC8S, save for the headlight arrangement, side air-intake design, larger brakes, the rear end and front splitters. Similarities include large scissor doors that open by rotating up and forward. Both Koenigsegg creations are mid-engine two-seat coupe. Koenigsegg adorned the CCR with a ghost emblem, which is the symbol of the Swedish Fighter Jet Squadron No. 1, (Johan röd) used to occupy the carmaker’s current facility. Koenigsegg revealed during a History Channel special on the CCR that it will have a base price of around US$590,000.
