If you can’t decide whether a sports car is better suited to a lightning-quick and smooth automatic transmission or a manual transmission that creates a direct connection between you and the mechanics and drives the mechanics under your will, don’t hesitate any longer: the Koenigsegg CC850 provides both at the same time.

With the lever moving in the open scenery, you can choose between six forward gears according to the usual scheme, using a traditional clutch pedal to disconnect and create the connection between the 1385 hp 5.0 V8 engine and the driven wheels. If you don’t feel like it, the unit works as a nine-speed automatic, and you don’t have to do anything with it.

In many details, the CC850 pays tribute to the Koenigsegg CC8S, which was presented exactly twenty years ago in 2002. The most important similarity is the same weight/power ratio – as many kilograms as the car weighs, so much horse power is provided by the engine. As in Koenigsegg’s Jesko block, this engine does not have a flywheel, which allows for extraordinary throttle responses.

The design world is also extremely similar, including the wheels, triple headlights, analog instruments, symmetrical interior design, side doors that open upwards, and of course the removable roadster roof – this is the third car in the third week of August, the Hennessey Venom F5 Roadster and the After the Bugatti W16 Mistral, which combines more than 1,000 horsepower with an open-top driving experience.

Not only the Koenigsegg CC8S is celebrating, of course, but also the company founder Christian von Koenigsegg, who is fifty years old this year – the age of the boss is not only reflected in the model name of the new model, but also defines the entire project, since fifty units of the car will be produced, no more. no less.
