2006 Koenigsegg CCX Is A Certified Legend That Still Looks Like A Million Bucks

Want a new Koenigsegg? Good luck. Even if you have the cash on hand, the order books are full. So what to do?

Buy a used one, that’s what. But if the prospect of buying a million-dollar hypercar in anything short of factory condition doesn’t sit well with you, Koenigsegg may have the answer.

The company recently launched its Certified Legends program that restores older models to brand-new condition, and it’s displaying one such reconditioned hypercar at the Geneva Motor Show this year.

It’s a CCX made a dozen years ago, long before Koenigsegg have developed the hybrid powertrain for the Regera, or even embraced to turbocharging. The CCX packed the slightly smaller version of the manufacturer’s V8 engine, displacing 4.7 liters and employing two superchargers to produce 806 horsepower. That’s a heck of a lot of power by any measure, and was positively earth-shattering over a decade ago.

This one is even rarer than most in that it was built in right-hand-drive configuration. It’s been restored to its original shade of Royal Blue, and its interior refitted in natural-colored aniline leather, with basket-woven seats and rear bulkhead.

It looks, in short, like a million bucks – which is a good thing, because it probably cost at least that much to buy and recondition. As a Koenigsegg Certified Legend, it’s backed by a two-year factory warranty. And as few vehicles as the Swedish manufacturer has made, it’s been at it for 25 years now. So if you can’t get your hands on a new Agera or Regera, this could be your next best bet.
