Examining the record-setting 2005 Koenigsegg CCR Up Close

The Koenigsegg CCR marked the brand’s global prominence when it was crafted in 2005. The CCR broke records by earning the title of the ‘most potent production car’ and also claimed the throne for the highest top speed.

Nils from @ghostsquadron.koenigsegg had the opportunity last year to intimately encounter this striking Lava Orange machine. During that time, the car was under the possession of Esser Automotive in Dusseldorf, Germany. Presently, this stunning beast (chassis no. 20) is located in Canada.

The Koenigsegg CCR served as the precursor to the CCX. However, only 14 vehicles were manufactured, out of which 8 were adorned in Lava Orange. More recently, the Jesko prototype also bore the same vibrant hue as a tribute to its historical importance.

Equipped with a 4.7-liter V8 engine sourced from Ford’s modular V8, the CCR is a force to be reckoned with. Its twin superchargers inject air into the engine to produce an impressive 806 hp @ 6900 rpm and 679 lb-ft of torque @ 5700 rpm. This power is transmitted to the rear axle through a 6-speed manual gearbox.

With the ability to go from 0-62 mph in just 3.2 seconds, the CCR achieved a remarkable speed of 241 mph during its run at the Nardo high-speed test track in Italy.
