Bringing the brand’s first car, the CC8S, to the present day, the Koenigsegg CC850 will be a rare example in the current market with its exquisite retro details.
Koenigsegg, which started to enter our lives in the mid-90s, managed to take the heavyweights of the market down in the intervening period, despite being a Swedish boutique manufacturer. For the brand, which took eight years to put its first car, CC8S, into production, its birth date on the streets can be recorded as 2002. Entering the workshop to celebrate the 20th anniversary of this, CEO Christian von Koenigsegg and his team introduced a brand new monster to us with the opening of their doors. Bringing to mind the first model of its brand not only with its design but also with its name, the Koenigsegg CC850 is one of the most serious supercars we have seen recently.
Koenigsegg CC850; retro design, latest generation mechanics
Looking at the CC850 from the outside, you can easily feel the design philosophy of the supercars of the 2000s come into your mind. In addition to the general design lines of the vehicle, the front-rear lighting groups and rims also bear serious expressions from the model 20 years ago. It is definitely a pleasure to see the loyalty to the past in the cockpit. Alongside the analog gauges, the shift-parallel manual gearbox demonstrates a magnificent commitment to the overall character. The CC850 is a modern-day car, mechanically and technologically, no matter how old it is in terms of design.
In the engine department, the 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 machine used by the brand in its latest generation vehicles finds a place for itself with all its nobility. Coming with a combination of 1,385 horsepower and 1,385 Nm torque, the car almost doubles the 655 horsepower and 750 Nm torque values of the inspired CC8S. The fact that the CC850, which was developed on a carbon monocoque chassis, is a 1,385 kilometer automobile with all its parts, brought a smiley rate of 1 horsepower per kilogram to us. Understanding the engineering of the CC850 becomes even more important when we remember that the VW Golf with its 1.5-liter engine weighs a total of 1,365 kilograms. Along with the CC850, the gear system introduced by Koenigsegg for the first time in the world deserves attention. The system, called “Engage Shift”, can optimize the gear shift range in manual combination according to the driving mode. The car will also be equipped with a 9-speed automatic transmission combination. In honor of Christian von Koenigsegg’s 50th birthday, only 50 units of the CC850 will be produced in total, and the prices have not been announced yet.
