Check Out This Amazing Koenigsegg CCX Video
The Koenigsegg CCX was introduced in 2006. The name stood for Competition Coupe X, in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the completion and test drive of the first vehicle that Koenigsegg built in 1996. It had a price tag of $695,000
The chassis of the CCX is made from carbon fiber with aluminum honeycomb and Kevlar. It featured the same 4.7 liter, V8 engine that Koenigsegg had used for the CCR. But it is lighter by around 200 pounds than its predecessor.
The CCX ran on 91 octane fuel, designed to comply with US emission standards. It also featured two transmissions.
While the overall shape of the CCX is very similar to that of the CCR, it has several redesigned parts. It has a more intricate bumper design compared to its predecessor, include larger vents, LED foglamps, and adjusted carbon fiber diffuser.
The headlamps were also a lot bigger than those of its predecessor. The hood also has a central vent, obviously to provide extra cooling to the engine. The bumper was also a lot larger compared to the earlier vehicle that Koenigsegg built.
When viewed from the side, you can mistake the CCX for the CCR. It has a massive vent in the door and rear fenders just like its predecessor. It also has flat haunches and side mirrors very much like that of the CCR.
The front hood, though, was different with a CCX logo located on the rear fender. The CCX also has larger side skirts. The rear hood, meanwhile, has a large glass window over the engine.
Curiously, the CCX was just 3.5 inches longer than the CCR. This is in compliance with rear impact regulations in the US. The longer body also saved some space for the Koenigsegg in the rear, resulting in improved cooling.
