The handling, however, was without fault, the steering felt precise and nicely weighted, and the non-anti-lock brakes were reassuringly strong after a fast blast down the straight.

Koenigsegg CCX

In the past, these engines were controversial, as they used a Ford Racing block with Koenigsegg manufactured components.
Fortunately, Koenigsegg weren't turned off by the mishap when they repaired and returned the car with a new downforce lip to suit Top Gear's presenters.

Koenigsegg CCXR

By following conscientious and forward thinking strategies, Koenigsegg has managed to create the Bio Fuel Powered CCXR - environmentally friendly 1200 with even more spectacular performance than the standard CCX.
Following the long term strategy of Koenigsegg, all previous CCXs will have the possibility to be converted by the factory to accept the biofuel option and reap the performance and environmental benefi ts of this wonderful and eco friendly fuel.

Koenigsegg CCXR Edition

The car is more track biased compared to the standard models, as it has stiffer springs and anti-roll bars, reset dampers and lowered chassis.
The Edition cars will be built in two different versions, a CCX model limited to 14 cars with 888 bhp and a CCXR (Bio flexi fuel) model limited to 6 cars with 1018 bhp.

Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita

The Trevita was limited to only three cars hence the name Trevita, which means Three white in Swedish.
The Trevita features a koenigsegg proprietary glittering silvery white carbon composite fabric.
