    Rare Koenigsegg CCX Bites the Dust

    We’ve never believed in a car being cursed, but there’s definitely something unlucky about this sad looking supercar from Swedish manufacturer Koenigsegg. This particular incident involved a blue 2008 CCX that was damaged by a dealer in New York who decided to take the customer-owned supercar for a quick spin.

    The unfortunate dealer ended up crashing into a guardrail and also managed to damage a 2009 Porsche GT2 in the process--no word on whether the two cars were racing, but in circumstances such as this it probably would be safe to assume they were.

    The Koenigsegg CCX is one of the rarest supercars in the world, with only 25 examples being produced, of which only 10 made their way to North America. If you’re interested, even one of the used examples will set you back close to a million dollars.

    This isn’t the first time we’ve reported on a crashed Koenigsegg CCX. In fact, it isn’t even the second time. In 2006 a man in Norway crashed one into a ditch within 18 hours of taking delivery of the car from Norwegian millionaire Tommy Sharif who spun out of control in it before deciding to get rid of it.

    The Koenigsegg CCX is one of the rarest supercars in the world. With production of only 25 units per year (only 10 of which make it to the US), chances of seeing one on the road is close to zero.

    These cars have a sticker price of around $500,000, but to buy one, you need to shell out more like $1 million.

    This particular vehicle, a 2008 CCX, was destroyed when a dealer decided to take his customer's car out for a spin. He ended up crashing into a guardrail and also damaging a 2009 Porsche GT2 in the process.

    The accident occurred in New York. Thanks goes out to Antoine Dominic for sending the pic.

    A dealer in New York decided it would be a good idea to take one of his customer’s cars for a spin around town. The half-million dollar 2008 Koenigsegg CCX isn’t your typical car, with only around 25 made per year worldwide, so when this guy crashed it into a guardrail taking out a Porsche GT2 in the process, I couldn’t imagine how he was feeling.[/QUOTE]

     That is going to be one angry costumer. and now he has about a 1M dollar credit there. i'd be all like "yeah while you get me another Ksg i'll take a 458, an lp560-4 and a DBS .... yeah have them all delivered at my house, in one piece please"
