The Swedish Koenigsegg CCX Supercar speeded into motor journalists hearts last week at Bab Al Shams as TONIC introduced this swedsih manmade 550,000 Euro hyperfast sport machine. The latest creation of Christian Von Koenigsegg, the Koenigsegg CCX, is a look-like-no-other car whose body and chassis are made of a lightweight carbon fibre composite reinforced with Kevlar, and whose all-aluminium engine is designed for high intensity pressure and heat. A perfect combination for this region!
Christian von Koenigsegg, who was in Dubai for the launch, talked about the manufacture of his cars with a clear vision: “In the production of each car, we devote all available time, emotions and resources – sparing nothing, venturing and sacrificing everything – in the name of beauty, perfection and speed.”
The CCX is the latest iteration of the Koenigsegg CC range, offering tighter lines and a more aggressive stance, but clearly following in the noble design and engineering tradition of its predecessor, the CCR, famous for holding the production car speed record of 388 km per hour.
Inside, leather contrasts with futuristic stainless steel controls and refined surfaces. The hardtop is stored under the front bonnet during roofless driving and crash tests have verified that at least in terms of safety, Koenigsegg is a truly Swedish car.
Andreas Petré, Manager – Koenigsegg Middle East, is looking forwar to introduce the CCX to car enthusiasts in the region “because of our shared passion for the most finely honed, beautiful and powerful vehicles on the street.”
Other distinctive elements include a large interior that makes it the most spacious supercar on the market; optional ceramic front disc brakes that give it a lower unsprung weight than any other supercar, and an engine that is engineered completely in house, unique among low-volume supercar manufacturers.
The world’s fastest, most powerful production cars will soon be gliding along the roads of the UAE and the rest of the Gulf.
Koenigsegg operates a regional marketing office in Jebel Ali, Dubai.
TONIC is the appointed head agency of Koenigsegg in the Middle East and Africa.
