A Koenigsegg CC prototype was first broadcast in 1996, while the full prototype carbon fiber production was finally unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in 2000. The first customer took delivery of a red CC8S at 2002 Geneva Motor Show and four more cars were built that year. Koenigsegg was established in Asia later this year with a first in Seoul Auto Show. In 2004, the new CCR was presented at Geneva Motor Show; Only 14 were made.
In 2006 Koenigsegg CCX launched a new model that has been created to meet the global requirements for on-road use. This meant that cars had to go through a complete development to meet the latest and highest standards of safety and emissions that the worldwide authorities require; Koenigsegg was, for example, develop its own engines and related technologies. Furthermore, Koenigsegg is the only supercar and low-volume manufacturer to pass the new European pedestrian impact test. Immediately after Koenigsegg has passed this test, the requirement was deemed too complicated for compliance by small manufacturers, you now need to comply with these rules if the volume of production of a given model is less than 10 000 cars a year.
In 2007 Koenigsegg CCXR has created a version of biofuel / CCX flexible fuel. The machine has a modified engine management system, fuel system and engine, which allows the machine to operate on regular gasoline or ethanol, and in any mixture of these two fuels. The ethanol has a higher octane rating than the normal fuel and has an internal cooling effect of the combustion chamber, allowing an increase in performance.
In 2009 Koenigsegg released information on a special edition called the machine “Trevita”, three of which were planned to be produced, but only two were completed due to technical problems. The Trevita, which translates into English as “three white” has a body made entirely exclusive Koenigsegg carbon fiber coated with diamond material. The Trevita is based on the CCXR, and therefore produces 1,018 horsepower (759 kW) when running on biofuels.
In 2010 Koenigsegg released information to the 2010 Geneva Motor Show a new model called the Agera, which translates into English as “act / act.” The Agera is equipped with a V8 engine with dual 5.0-liter turbo variable geometry developed by Koenigsegg, capable of 910 hp (679 kW), coupled to a new gearbox to 7 reports. The Agera design follows a clear line of previous supercar Koenigsegg, but adds many new special features like a wider front track, a new style and aerodynamics and new interiors; Including a new lighting technology called “Ghost Light”, which consists of microscopic holes to hide the interior lighting until it is turned on, which then shines through what appears to be in solid aluminum. The Agera is in production by the end of 2010.
At the Geneva Motor Show in 2015, Koenigsegg has introduced a new machine called Regera, which translates into English as “kingdom” or “rule.” The transmission uses Regera Koenigsegg Direct Drive (KDD). Below 48 km / h (30 mi / h), the engine power two electric motors on the rear wheels and the internal combustion engine (ICE) is disconnected. the ICE is connected to a fixed transmission ratio without transmission, a torque from electric motors mentioned above and reinforced by a third electric motor fixed to the axle shaft over 48 km / h (30 mi / h).
Koenigsegg initially based his constructions made on the motor control of a V8 engine block for Ford Racing. These engines powered the first set of cars CC monikered. The block for the 4800cc V8 in CCX (Ten Cup competition to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the company) was expressed by the Koenigsegg at Grainger & Worrall United Kingdom, which also launches the block to drive the Agera R 5, 0 liters.
