2024 Koenigsegg CC850 breaks cover to give Bugatti a run for its money. This year celebrates the 20th anniversary of Koenigsegg
This year Christian von Koenigsegg, is simultaneously celebrating his golden jubilee.
In honor of this, the company unveiled the new CC850 hypercar, which is described as a modernized version of the original Koenigsegg CC8S supercar.
There will only be 50 vehicles made in all.
On the outside, the new Koenigsegg CC850 hypercar resembles the previous model, but it is far more powerful and equipped.
The doors tumble forward and the hood and engine cover are motorized.
Additionally, it has a detachable top that, like the CC8S, can be stowed and kept within the vehicle. It moves on wheels that have been modified to have phone-dial-shaped holes and a smooth, unadorned classic style.
Additionally, there is the hidden rear wing, which emerges at higher speeds. The usage of analog instrument dials and the gated shifter, which is located in the middle console, highlight the cabin’s interior.
On the Koenigsegg CC8S, the gear change stick has a wooden knob with a Swedish flag on it.
When running on gasoline, the CC850 hypercar is powered by a twin-turbo 5.0-liter V8 engine that produces 1,185 horsepower and 1,022 pound-feet of torque.
However, using E85 fuel increases power output by 1,385 horsepower, which adds interest to the situation. The vehicle’s multi-clutch automatic, the Koenigsegg Engage Shift System (KESS), is a variation of the company’s Light Speed Transmission (LST).
It is a lightweight model because it is composed of carbon fibre, weighing only 3,053 pounds (1,384 kg).
The power-to-weight ratio is the same as the Koenigsegg One:1. Additionally, it has features like dampening and adjustable ride height.
