The story of Koenigsegg is as fascinating and unique as the cars it produces. Inspired at the age of 5 by a Norwegian animated film about a bicycle repairman who builds a racing car, Christian von Koenigsegg grew up dreaming of creating the perfect sportscar. Incredibly, against all the odds, he had achieved his dream before his 27th birthday.

After several years of planning he launched the Koenigsegg project in 1994. Christian gathered together a tight-knit group of extremely competent people and together they designed and assembled a prototype. The success of this prototype enabled the foundation of Koenigsegg Automotive Ltd.

Rather like his cars, Christian’s company moved at a record pace, and in the year 2000 Koenigsegg began series production of the CC8S model. It proved to the world that it was indeed possible for a small, passionate, dedicated group of enthusiasts to rival the old, established supercar brands.

THE CCXR - THE FIRST GREEN SUPERCAR

The CCXR will take you to an entirely new level of performance. It is a derivative of the CCX, with a highly modified engine that can run on E85 and E100 Biofuel as well as normal 98 octane petrol (Europe). When run on regular petrol, the 4.7 litre twin-supercharged Koenigsegg engine delivers 806 Bhp, but this figure rises to an astonishing 1018 Bhp when the car is run on E85 Biofuel.

The CCXR is the first green supercar in the world and thereby sets a great example for others to follow. Since the ethanol in E85 fuel has a much higher octane rating and internal cooling capacity, the engine can run with higher compression, boost pressure and more spark advance compared to the normal petrol-fuelled CCX, whilst still maintaining the same exhaust temperature.
