    Koenigsegg new record - Sport Auto preview

    Koenigsegg sets Supertest Records

    On the 17th and 18th of October 2005, The Koenigsegg CCR conducted the thorough and crucial Sportauto Supertest. The article will be published in the spring of 2006.
    However we have received permission to share some of the ground braking data in advance.

    The Supertest conducted by Sportauto cheif-editor Horst von Surma is considered a true benchmark of performance.

    Even tough the conditions was far from ideal, with temperatures ranging down to 6 C, the Koenigsegg still managed to show class leading performance with a time of 7 minutes and 34 seconds around the Nürburgring Nordschleife, with comparatively cold tires, minimizing the grip level.

    At the same time the CCR obtained the fastest ever recorded speed on the long Doetinger Hoehe straight, reaching the outstanding speed of 313 km/h.

    Due to the cold weather, the tires did not reach full working temperature, which is equivalent to a loss of minimum 5 seconds per lap around the ring, compared to a well tempered day, according to the experts.

    Given warmer conditions, we are now more confident than ever, that CCR will be the first production car under 7 minutes and 30 seconds.

    All the acquired data and settings, such as wheel alignment, tire pressures etc, is available to any Koenigsegg customer. Utilizing this data, the CCR drivers can set up their KACS system to - "Ring Dominance", in order to obtain Nordschleife track day superiority.

    Interesting data:
    (Sportauto ref. - cold condition - CCR)

    0-200 km/h: 9.6 Seconds - New record!
    36 m Slalom speed: 138 km/h - New record!
    110 m Slalom Speed: 158 km/h - New record!

    Hockenheim:
    Laptime: 1.09.8 Seconds
    Long straight end speed - just before nord kurve: 220 km/h - New record!

    Nürnburgring - Nordschleife:
    Laptime: 7.34 Seconds
    Long straight end speed - Doetinger Hoehe: 313 km/h - New record!

    Koenigsegg has now proven that it is the best allround performing supercar ever produced. Not only does it have class leading record breaking top speed, but also class leading aguility around a race track, combined with class leading suspension comfort.

    As soon as spring is in the air, serving a more tempered climate - we will be back....... for more action around the Ring.

    Re: Koenigsegg new record - Sport Auto preview

    This car is launched in HK today and I will go to have to a look later this afternoon; however, the price is close to Bugatti Veyron. It is HKD10m (USD1.28)before tax. After tax is close to HKD20m.

    Re: Koenigsegg new record - Sport Auto preview

    These records might not last for long. The Bugatti Veyron might obliterate them shortly.

    Re: Koenigsegg new record - Sport Auto preview

    I don't think so.
    The Veryron meight brake all the records on the straight line speed tests, but for Nordschleife Rekord, I guess the car is to havey.

    Re: Koenigsegg new record - Sport Auto preview

    Koenigsegg looks average to me.

    id rather buy a a pagani, pay extra and have them soop up the motor. And whil im at it, i might have them use pink gator skin on my gear knob.

    Re: Koenigsegg new record - Sport Auto preview

    No 2 ton car will break Nordischlife records...too many twisties.

    But I agree, I think I'd rather take a Zonda. It's so beautiful!

    Mike,

    I hear there is a Bugatti Veyron Convertible version planned!

    Not sure what it would feel like to drive at 250mph with the top down, though. . . .

    Re: Koenigsegg new record - Sport Auto preview

    I can't imagine who would pay that HUUUUUUUUUUUGE amount of money(600.000$)for a ford v8 fitted in a shoebox designed car....The Veyron might not be a problem to them, they'll just have to push the turbo pressure a little bit higher to reach 1002bhp(how great motorists these guys are.... ).I hope the engine won't explode in their faces.....

    It was in one of the mainstream car mags. from earlier this summer (can't remember if CAR, EVO, R&T, C&D or MT).

    Re: Koenigsegg new record - Sport Auto preview

    Faced with the choice between the Zonda, the Veyron and Koeniggsegg, I know I would choose the woman in Amir Sarmad's avatar any day....;)
