Koenigsegg CC850

The Swedish manufacturer of high-performance sports cars presented its new supercar, the Koenigsegg CC850. It’s a super car that returns to the scene after 20 years, stronger than ever.

The CC850 is the successor to the CC8S, which appeared on the market two decades ago. However, apart from the design, the two cars are completely different. It is powered by a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with 1,385 hp (1,032 kW) and 1,021 lb-ft (1,385 Nm) of torque when running on E85 fuel. With regular fuel, the number of horsepower drops by 200 hp. The engine is paired with a 9-speed “Light Speed ‚Äč‚ÄčTransmission” gearbox. However, when you enter the cabin, you will see a 6-speed manual transmission and a clutch pedal. The reason is that Koenigsegg has linked the clutch pedal and mechanical gear changes to a multi-clutch 9-speed transmission, which Koenigsegg calls the TWMPAFMPC transmission (the most powerful and fastest production car with a manual transmission). This enables the driver to enjoy manual gear changes in manual mode, but up to 6, because to switch to higher gears it is necessary to change the mode.

Inside, carbon fiber seats with red leather give the driver the full driving experience of a powerful sports car. Carbon accessories and red leather can also be seen on the door panels, the dashboard and the central part of the steering wheel with the “Koenigsegg” logo.

Koenigsegg has not announced the performance of the CC850, but neither has the price. The car will be produced in only 50 copies in honor of the 50th birthday of the company’s founder, Christian von Koenigsegg.
