Explore The Record-Breaking 2005 Koenigsegg CCR

The 2005 Koenigsegg CCR emerged as the model that propelled the brand to the global platform. Produced in 2005, the CCR established new benchmarks for the ‘most potent production car’ and eventually secured the title for the highest top speed. In the past year, Nils from @ghostsquadron.koenigsegg had the opportunity to come in close proximity with this formidable Lava Orange machine. During that time, the car was located at Esser Automotive in Dusseldorf, Germany. Presently, this stunning creature (chassis no. 20) is stationed in Canada.

The Koenigsegg CCR serves as the precursor to the CCX. However, only 14 vehicles were manufactured, out of which 8 were adorned in Lava Orange. More recently, the prototype Jesko showcased the same hue of orange owing to its historical significance. 

The CCR is empowered by a 4.7-liter V8 derived from Ford’s modular V8. Dual superchargers compel air into the engine, generating 806 hp @ 6900 rpm and 679 lb-ft of torque @ 5700 rpm. The power is transmitted to the rear axle through a 6-speed manual transmission.

The CCR can go from 0-62 mph in 3.2 seconds. It achieved a speed of 241 mph at the Nardo high-speed test track in Italy.
