The primary differences lie in the engine... They are the same basic block, but the CCR is factory rated at 806bhp, and CC8S is factory rated at 655bhp. The weight is also a bit lower.

The CCR has a Twin Screw Supercharger set-up, as CC8S is a single. Either way, the cars fly seriously.

There are also small differences, wheel size, factory standard and option packages, etc.

To see the complete differences, please visit the Koenigsegg comparison page.

From the pictures I have seen I think the engine is nothing more than a dohc modular Ford v8.

Precisely... There is now controversy with the Koenigsegg vehicles. Apparently, the new Ford GT is built with the same engine, and there happens to be some disagreement about who should be allowed to continue the use of the engine.

Im not filled in on all of the details, but I'll post them as soon as I get more information.

First come first serve. Koenigsegg, but just let them both have it.

I would like to think so... But in the automotive world, exclusiveness is the most important factor.

So if your supercar is sharing the SAME engine with another supercar... Whats exclusive about that?

So I guess thats a big deal in their minds... I'd still much rather have a Koenigsegg vehicle :lol:

The Koenigsegg cars use a V8 FORD Mustang engine -an old one at that from the 90s- which they tuned with a s/c etc. Of course, Koenigsegg deny using such an engine because they want to claim it is their engine so people will pay the high price for their car. That is deceptive and turns me off.! But they have been exposed and Ford has every right to go after them for copying their engine and renaming it Koenigsegg.

If you want a FORD V8 engine then buy a FORD car -at least you will have an original and save a lot of $$!

Koenigsegg doesn't use Ford engines...It uses a Ford racing block that is made in Italy, then it's sent to Koenigsegg where they build the engine. Von Koenigsegg himself said that the engine is 80-90% Koenigsegg engineered.

Ford can only dream of making such an engine.

the car is completely made in house from what i have found out. cant find the price of it though but its hits over 245 the only problem is its apparenly not street legal :(. one of the coolest features is that you can manually adjust the suspension and that its almost entirely carbon fiber kevlar blend.
in my opinion totally worth having :)

the bodys are slightly different as well, in particular the side vent the CCR has a CCR badge above it the CC8S has nothing and the CC8S vent is rounder where as the CCR vent has a point to it

also

the CC8S used a ford V8, the CCR engine (and all engines since) are built and developed entirely in house
