Koenigsegg sets Supertest Records

On the 17th and 18th of October 2005, The Koenigsegg CCR conducted the thorough and crucial Sportauto Supertest. The article will be published in the spring of 2006.
However we have received permission to share some of the ground braking data in advance.

The Supertest conducted by Sportauto cheif-editor Horst von Surma is considered a true benchmark of performance.

Even tough the conditions was far from ideal, with temperatures ranging down to 6 C, the Koenigsegg still managed to show class leading performance with a time of 7 minutes and 34 seconds around the Nürburgring Nordschleife, with comparatively cold tires, minimizing the grip level.

At the same time the CCR obtained the fastest ever recorded speed on the long Doetinger Hoehe straight, reaching the outstanding speed of 313 km/h.

Due to the cold weather, the tires did not reach full working temperature, which is equivalent to a loss of minimum 5 seconds per lap around the ring, compared to a well tempered day, according to the experts.

Given warmer conditions, we are now more confident than ever, that CCR will be the first production car under 7 minutes and 30 seconds.

All the acquired data and settings, such as wheel alignment, tire pressures etc, is available to any Koenigsegg customer. Utilizing this data, the CCR drivers can set up their KACS system to - "Ring Dominance", in order to obtain Nordschleife track day superiority.

Interesting data:
(Sportauto ref. - cold condition - CCR)

0-200 km/h: 9.6 Seconds – New record!
36 m Slalom speed: 138 km/h – New record!
110 m Slalom Speed: 158 km/h – New record!

Hockenheim:
Laptime: 1.09.8 Seconds
Long straight end speed – just before nord kurve: 220 km/h – New record!

Nürnburgring - Nordschleife:
Laptime: 7.34 Seconds
Long straight end speed - Doetinger Hoehe: 313 km/h – New record!

Koenigsegg has now proven that it is the best allround performing supercar ever produced. Not only does it have class leading record breaking top speed, but also class leading aguility around a race track, combined with class leading suspension comfort.

As soon as spring is in the air, serving a more tempered climate - we will be back....... for more action around the Ring.

For reference data, please have a look at:

Very nice.

Your link to the original material is broken.

& what I still wonder, is why Koenigsegg continue to use a CC8S front bonnet/clamshell on their CCR. I find that strange, especially as they didn't even have a CCR front shell when they set their top speed record at Nardo.

I'd like to see the Koenigsegg CCR dominate its class in sports car racing like the McLaren F1 GTR. Heck, I'd like to see it have the success of the Saleen S7R.

But I highly doubt it.

Also, the 996 Turbo came out several years ago.

See if they'll test the Veryon. It should put up some impressive numbers.
