Swedish Speed Cars
A stunning collection of Koenigsegg‘s sports car models. “Koenigseggs design seeks to give an interpretation of strength and flowing motion. The body of a Koenigsegg is formed for one ultimate purpose; speed,” notes from the brand’s website. Each automotive is specifically customized for its client, with concerns for safety, quality material—both finish and function. The company states: “They are like individual pieces of art.“

“The Koenigsegg Edition has been created to break records in the traditional Koenigsegg way. Our aim with the Edition is to deliver superior performance – on the track, in a straight line and on country roads – and to do so in style and comfort.
According to our comparative studies, no other supercar can match the Edition in terms of power-to-weight ratio, aerodynamic balance, downforce and chassis stiffness. At the same time, the Edition maintains the CCX’s fantastic drivability and its ability to absorb uneven road surfaces like no other supercar.”
“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. Apart from the unique composte material and the partially painted wheels it has the specification as the Special Edition CCXR.”
Acceleration: 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) 2.9 seconds; 0-200 km/h 8.75 sec. 0-200-0 km/h 13.55 sec; 300-0 km/h: 27.8 sec. Top Speed: 400+ km/h (250+ mph) (without rear wing). Braking distance: 32m (100-0 km/h). Lateral G-force: 1.5 G.
“The CCR was an evolution of the CC8S. It was produced between 2004 to 2006. The CCR was produced in 14 examples in total. Compared to the CC8S, The CCR featured an upgraded body design. Larger front splitter. Larger brakes, New larger tires and wheels. Upgraded suspension and a more powerfuel engine with twin compressors, producing an astonishing 806 hp. All in all the CCR had a more racing car like stance and appearance compared to the more elegant CC8S.”
“The CCGT was created for the sole purpose of racing in FIA GT1. When the car was finished the regulation in FIA GT1 changed so that there needs to be a minimum of 350 cars produced per year of the model that is going to compete. As Koenigsegg’s production volumes are much less than this, we have not been able to enter the car in GT1 racing.
The one existing car, showed very promising results in its testing program and has laid the foundation for Koenigsegg’s future racing aspirations. The CCGT is driven a couple of times per year for Closed track sessions and events like Goodwood Festival of Speed and other venues.”
“[...] Finally, Agera is also short for the Greek word Ageratos, which in ancient Greek means “ageless”. The Koenigsegg Agera is a testament to time. The original shape and concept of the Koenigsegg CC, created 15 years ago, is still valid, fresh and highly competitive today. The Agera still stay true to the original philosophy, shape and size of the original CC. At the same time, it looks, feels and performs like something belonging to the future.”
