Koenigsegg CC850 Is A New Take On The CC8S

Koenigsegg is celebrating 20 years since their first ever production hypercar, the CC8S. 2022 is also the year when founder Christian von Koenigsegg turned 50. Therefore, to celebrate these two milestones, the company has introduced a new model. It’s called the Koenigsegg CC850.

As we had reported earlier, the new model is heavily inspired by the CC8S, which put the brand on the world stage. It’s a modern interpretation of the original and we think it looks absolutely stunning!

The CC850 is lower than the Jesko and has a classic rounded design. The headlights have a triple LED light signature, while the rear features triple LEDs similar to the original. The signature vents on the sides and roofline and the wheels are also a nod to the car that started it all.

The interior of the CC850 is unique. It has a 3-pod instrument cluster with retro dials and a central touchscreen. The most impressive part of the interior though is the H-pattern shifter. It has a “manualized Lightspeed transmission”. Yes, it even comes with a clutch pedal.

Powering the new limited edition hypercar a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that develops 1185 hp on pump gas and 1385 hp on E85. Peak torque is rated at 1020 lb-ft at 4800 rpm. The car weighs 1385 kg thus achieving a power-to-weight ratio of 1:1.

Koenigsegg is building just 50 units of the CC850 with a price of around €3.5 million.
