A rare Koenigsegg CCXR Edition is looking for a new home in the UK with an asking price of 1.8 million pounds ($2.31 million).
The Swedish hypercar was introduced by Koenigsegg at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show and was limited to just four units worldwide. Like the standard CCXR, the Edition variant’s twin-supercharged V8 pumps out 1004 hp and 782 lb-ft (1060 Nm) of torque while running on ethanol.
While it’s engine is the same, the CCXR Edition does benefit from stiffer springs, revised anti-roll bars, new dampers, and a lowered chassis. Additionally, it was sold exclusively with eye-catching 11 spoke aluminum wheels, an adjustable twin-deck rear wing, and produced solely with exposed carbon fiber bodywork.
This example has been put up for sale by GVE London on Auto Trader and is apparently the only right-hand drive model of the four built. Since rolling out of Koenigsegg’s Angelholm facility, it has also covered just 1070 miles (1721 km) and, if it’s been well taken care of, should drive like brand new.
At the time of the CCX’s introduction in 2006, Koenigsegg was still a newcomer on the automotive scene and had only previously built the CC8S and CCR, limited to six and 14 units respectively. The CCX marked the company’s first real successful steps into the automotive industry and received positive reviews. Following production of the CCXR, Koenigsegg went on to create the Agera family and, recently, the hybrid Regera.
Purchasing a Koenigsegg a decade ago would have been a big gamble for a company with little heritage. However, the marque has established itself as a serious hypercar player in recent years and its earlier models, like the CCXR Edition in question, could prove to be collectables in the coming decades.
