The Koenigsegg CC was the prototype for the CC8S sports car made by the Swedish automaker Koenigsegg.

Overview[edit]

2000 Koenigsegg CC prototype

Work on the car started in 1994, Koenigsegg wanted to build a supercar that could exceed all standards set by the McLaren F1 at the time, and go over the 386 km/h (240 mph) set by the F1 in 1997. The Koenigsegg CC prototype was inspired by the McLaren F1 and the Ferrari F40. The car was initially painted silver was then painted black when the new dihedral helix synchro actuation doors were fitted to the car and then was painted in its current colour. Other two prototypes included the white European spec prototype which was produced in 2000 and the other was a pre-production version of the CC8S. The production version of the CC, the CC8S, was designed in 2002, and was the first car Koenigsegg produced. [5]
