Overview

1997 to date

Created by Christian Koenigsegg and Michael Bergfelt, the Koenigsegg CC was a fearsome supercar.  The prototype used a 4-litre Audi V8 engine but the production version was powered by a detuned Formula 1 engine.  With 500bhp available from the Motori Modern flat-12 3.8 litre engine, a top speed of 220mph (354km/h) and a 0-60mph (97km/h) time of 3.1 seconds was claimed.  Technically it featured a 7-speed gearbox, double wishbone suspension all round and race-derived carbon-fibre ventilated disc brakes.  The dramatic bodywork, with its detachable roof was made of carbon-Kevlar honeycomb and incorporated competition-derived twin Venturis for aerodynamic performance.
