Koenigsegg CC850 Experiencing High Market Demand, Increased Production Required

Revealed last week at Pebble Beach, the Koenigsegg CC850 has captured the attention and interest of affluent individuals worldwide.

Originally, Koenigsegg had intended to manufacture 50 units of the CC850. However, due to overwhelming demand, the manufacturer has decided to ramp up production to 70 cars.

The CC850 is a tribute to 20 years since the launch of their first hypercar, the CC8S. Additionally, it honors the 50th birthday of founder Christian von Koenigsegg, hence the decision to produce 50 units.

Despite being based on the Jesko, the CC850’s design takes heavy inspiration from the CC8S. The interior is distinctive, featuring a retro-themed 3-pod instrument cluster and a central touch screen display.

Equipped with a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, the CC850 generates 1185 hp on standard fuel and 1385 hp on E85, with peak torque of 1020 lb-ft at 4800 rpm, resulting in a remarkable power-to-weight ratio of 1:1.

One unique aspect of the CC850 is its innovative “manualized Lightspeed transmission”, essentially an automatic transmission that can be manually operated like a traditional manual gearbox.
