Going Global

The CCX was the third generation car from Koenigsegg. It was the first Koenigsegg that was truly designed with the latest and greatest tools available. All body and chassis tooling was designed in 3D cad and cut by CNC machines, instead of being hand modelled and built, like the previous models. The chassis was enlarged to also suit “the American” market. The roof line was raised, the bumpers and lighting was changed. The electrical system was now fully digital. Fuses and relays were based on semiconductor technology instead of physical fuses and relays. Even though the CCX in many ways looked like an evolution from the CCR, it was truly a completely new car, almost no components were carried over.
The CCX was designed to comply with global safety and environmental regulations, making it eligible for sale anywhere in the world. This was a great challenge for a small company like Koenigsegg. The performance of the car was staggering, as shown on the famous BBC program, Top Gear, where the CCX took the lap record that lasted for years. The record-breaking CCX was developed to deliver superior performance – both on the track and on the road.
The award-winning aerodynamics of the CCX transmitted the strength and fluidity of its design. It was built to maximize both top speed and efficiency. Every aspect of the CCX served a fundamental purpose. There were no gadgets or unnecessary features on the car – only elements that actively contribute to efficiency and purity.
The CCX was the first Koenigsegg to move away from a Ford engine block based design. The CCX engine laid the foundation for all Koenigsegg engines to come after. The 806 Bhp engine, developed and assembled by Koenigsegg, delivered unmatched power in terms of its size and weight. At the same time, it complied with the toughest emission regulations worldwide. The engine was built to last and to be driven to the limit on a daily basis.
