Forget Those Sissy Supercars: This Is The Beast You Want

Make sure you sit down before seeing the price tag. Ferrari, Porsche and McLaren may be ruling the hypercar space with the LaFerrari, 918 Spyder and P1, but it’s hard to ignore the insane vehicles coming out Sweden. What started out as a small, exotic automaker has turned into one of the craziest brands in the world with engineers who can compete with the best from larger companies. Any guess as to which automaker we’re talking about? That’s right, the automaker we’re referring to is Koenigsegg and the supercar that one wealthy and lucky enthusiast can buy is a unique CCX.

The CCX isn’t the fastest supercar from Koenigsegg, but it is a vehicle that set the Swedish automaker onto its current path. The CCX was the third generation of supercar from the brand and featured the latest and greatest technology at the time. Unlike more recent supercars from Koenigsegg, the CCX is one of the few vehicles from the automaker that is road legal in the US and featured a chassis that was specifically suited for the American market. While the CCX looked similar to the CCR, the supercar was completely new and had none of the same parts from the previous supercar. The CCX isn’t like other supercars; it’s raw, unforgiving and will eat Ferraris for breakfast. So get your checkbooks out and get ready to write a massive check.

Crave Luxury in Texas has an extremely rare 2009 Koenigsegg CCX for sale. It was listed on eBay for $1,000,000. That’s an incredible amount of money, but even more astonishing is the fact that there were no bids on it! With only 1,721 miles on the clock, this Swedish monster will continue to appreciate over time and will surely sell for more than $1 million when it eventually is sold to someone. But what makes this CCX so special and worth that much money? For starters, this hairy-chested supercar comes with a twin-supercharged 4.7-liter V8 that generates a whopping 806 horsepower and 679 lb-ft of torque. There are no electric motors to be found here.

Zero to 60 mph only takes 3.2 seconds, while the quarter mile goes by in 10.5 seconds at 145 mph. It may not be as quick as modern supercars, but the CCX is definitely faster with an incredible top speed of 245 mph. With this model’s immaculate red and matte black carbon fiber paint job, it’s definitely one of a kind. The interior is also decked out in carbon fiber parts and shows minimal signs of use. With a starting price tag of roughly $700,000 when the supercar debuted, this Swedish monster will only increase in price and is a better bet than purchasing real estate. By: Carbuzz
