Watch That Bespoke Koenigsegg CCXR Crashing In Mexico

Footage showing the moment that a bespoke Koenigsegg CCXR crashed in Mexico last week has just emerged online.

The video, shared on Twitter by local journalist Carlos Jimenez, appears to have come from a CCTV camera that was filming the road in the moments leading up to the Swedish hypercar crashing.

If you can excuse the low-resolution footage, you’ll be able to see the turquoise Koenigsegg come into frame as its slides sideways out of control. The hypercar then slams into the concrete base of a lamp post, swinging the car around violently before it comes to a rest on the side of the road. Look closely and you may notice a piece of bodywork flying across the road shortly after impact.

Pictures of the custom CCXR from the scene revealed that extensive damage had been done to the sides and front fascia of the hypercar. However, considering the speed at which the car smashed into the concrete pole, the damage isn’t overly severe and could have been much worse if the car wasn’t made from high-strength carbon fiber.

We’re told that the father of the owner was driving the car at the time of the crash and that the family intends on repairing it. That means it will probably be sent back to Koenigsegg’s headquarters in Sweden to be returned to its former self.

The first owner of this Koenigsegg CCXR was the former Prime Minister of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jabr Al-Thani, but he sold it a number of years ago before someone in Mexico purchased it.

    Doesn’t it look like the car in front of the Koenigsegg did something strange? It looks like the tail end is swerving out in front of the CCXR, and that the CCXR is trying to avoid it.
