The CC850 wasn’t in want of as a lot consideration as a few of the different vehicles which have handed by way of the store, however Kosilla gave it an intensive wash and Reflex Professional enamel coating, which ought to make it tougher for dust to stay to the paint.

Talking of paint, the CC850’s 25-stage paint maxed out Kosilla’s paint depth gauge. Areas with thinner paint must be handled extra delicately, however that is not an issue right here. Koenigsegg is not any stranger to elaborate paint jobs; the Jesko present automobile displayed on the 2019 Geneva auto present had 34 layers to its paint

The CC850 is a re-imagination of Koenigsegg’s first manufacturing automobile—the CC8S. The styling borrowed closely from that hypercar, however the CC850 is powered by Koenigsegg’s present twin-turbo 5.0-liter V-8 tuned to ship 1,169 hp with common pump gasoline or 1,366 hp with E85 gas. The V-8 is coupled to a brand new model of Koenigsegg’s Mild Velocity Transmission that may change between a 9-speed automated mode and 6-speed handbook mode—full with clutch pedal.

Koenigsegg initially deliberate 50 construct slots however they bought out in file time after the CC850’s Monterey debut, which meant a few of the firm’s loyal prospects missed out. The automaker rapidly upped manufacturing, including 20 construct slots. However even that will not meet demand for the automobile, CEO Christian von Koenigsegg anticipates, sustaining the CC850’s air of exclusivity.
