Recently it seems like there are a whole swag of rare and legendary cars are coming up for sale in Australia. We’ve seen a BMW Z8, Ferrari F40, Lexus LFA and now there is a 2008 Koenigsegg CCX for sale.
This car has quite the peculiar story however, because, as we understand it to never have been sold to a private buyer yet. This particular example has always been owned by Koenigsegg Australia and has been used at a number of events around Australia.
Despite what the $1.2 Million asking price would suggest, this isn’t one of the latest models. It is in fact a 2008 Koenigsegg CCX, a third generation car. We are now up to the 8th generation car, known as the Agera S.
Does this mean that the car is any less than awesome? Not at all.
Produced between 2006 and 2010 this monster car is powered by a 4.7L twin supercharged V8 engine that pumps out 593kW of power and 920Nm of torque.
As for fuel economy you’re looking at 17 litres per 100km and the 0-100km/h time is just 3.2 seconds. Not so frugal with the fuel, but who cars when it can get you onto the highway that quickly?
Most of all, there were only 14 cars ever produced.
The car for sale according to the listing has 188km on the clock. You could say it is pretty much a new car.
Finally, our favourite part of the car? It’s orange and we think it’d make a great promo car for us. Don’t you think?
