Koenigsegg



A new race car has been created by the Swedish supercar maker Koenigsegg, based on the production CC-model range.The homologated GT1 racer,

The Koenigsegg Development team has done a great job by refining the CC into the CCGT. The CCGT engine is based on the Koenigsegg CCX production engine with the superchargers removed but enlarged to 5.0 liter, in order to comply with the ACO and FIA GT1 regulations.

Most manufacturers are trying undergo massive weight saving programs, as the minimum wight allowed for a GTI race car is 1,100kg. Considering the fact that the racing CCGT wighs under 1.000 kg - which gives the possibility to place 100 kg of ballast freely within the car structure – Koenigsegg will definitely have an advantage over the competition.

The reliability of the race engine is expected be exceptional as it is based on the proven strength and durability of the significantly more powerful road car engine.The race engine is being developed in-house in parallel with the production units by Koenigsegg engineers, supported by Anders Hoglund from Cargine engineering and JP Motorsport.
