The Koenigsegg CCR is the precursor to the CCX. However, only 14 cars were produced, of which, 8 were painted in Lava Orange. More recently, the prototype Jesko featured the same shade of orange due to its historic significance.
The CCR is powered by a 4.7-liter V8 derived from Ford’s modular V8. Twin superchargers force air into the engine to develop 806 hp @ 6900 rpm and 679 lb-ft of torque @ 5700 rpm. The power is sent to the rear axle via a 6-speed manual transmission.
The CCR can accelerate from 0-62 mph in 3.2 seconds. It was driven to 241 mph at the Nardo high-speed test track in Italy.
