Koenigsegg will make more of its new CC850 hypercar to meet the crazy high demand

by | Aug 25, 2022 - 3:11PM | Supercars

Demand for Koenigsegg’s latest hypercar is high. 

So high, that the Swedish marque has just announced it will make an additional 20 units. 

Initially, Koenigsegg said it would make just 50 examples of the CC850, but that changed when all 50 were sold in less than a week.

The automaker’s founder Christian von Koenigsegg said he was over the moon at the “overwhelming response” to the CC850. 

“Clearly we struck a chord with the connoisseurs and the fans by blending our roots with novel thinking and a timeless design that stands apart from the rest,” he said. 

“We are humbled and grateful for the response and will do our outmost to exceed expectations.”

The CC850 was debuted at Monterey Car Week in California at the weekend. 

The brand said the CC850 was a reimagined homage to its record-shattering CC8S.

Only 50 examples were announced in celebration of Christian von Koenigsegg’s 50th birthday. 

Now, the extra 20 mark the number of years that have passed since the CC8S was released. 

Christian von Koenigsegg described the CC850 as an homage to “the single most meaningful car in Koenigsegg history”. 

“The CC8S put us on the map and made us successful,” he said. 

“And celebrating 20 years of production, alongside my 50th birthday felt like the right time to reveal the CC850 to appreciate our roots.” 

The exterior of the car wears a sleek Nordic Koenigsegg design, with telephone-dial style rims, and triple taillights. 

While visually the new release takes inspiration from the CC8S, the drivetrain, engine, and capabilities of the CC850 are completely new. 

The CC850’s 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 was engineered and built in-house.

It will deliver 1,185hp on regular gas or 1,385hp on E85. 

The CC850 will also achieve a one-to-one power-to-weight ratio.

The car also features the iconic detachable hardtop and can be run on renewable fuels. 

So, if you’re in the market for a hypercar that can churn out up to 1,385hp, now’s your chance.
