Koenigseggs first lap at the Nürburgring.

Koenigsegg had an outing at the Nordschleife at the Nürburgring for the first time the other week.

Without any prior setup or adjustment the Koenigsegg CCR managed to lap the ring in 7.39 Seconds.


This lap time show tremendous potential and is already class leading. The Koenigsegg Team will be back on the Ring within short for further trials.

The Koenigsegg CCR features customer adjustable, shock absorbers, wheel geometries, anti roll bars, ride-height and tire pressure. These adjustable features will be now be utilized, and an customer official "Ring" setting will be created. Hopefully, theses settings will help the CCR to become the first road legal, series-produced Super car under 7.30 Seconds.

Words from the founder:

-Last weeks laps around the Ring show that the Koenigsegg CCR is not only a world beater in a straight line, but also around the most challenging circuit in the world. I cannot wait to have another go.

More info will follow on this exciting challenge....

Re: Now it also humiliates the McLaren F1 at the Ring

Since hte moderators of the McLare nF1 forums need to answer and THEN lock the post I have to reply here to this:

Before I lock this - two things.

* There is no official lap time for the McLaren F1 around the Nürburgring anyway.
* Numbers don't make the Koenigsegg a better car than the F1. They just make it look prettier on paper.


Yes it does. A better lap tiem on the Ring makes it a better sportscar. That is the most demanding track there is anywhere in the world.

You F1 guys are funny: first it was that it was not fast enough. Then Koenigsegg beat the F1. Then the word was that the F1 was better on the track. Now that is not important. You guys are starting to sounds as arrogant as you master, Gordon M himself

Gustav,

I'm particularly interested in the customer adjustable tire pressure feature. Is this supposed to be unique to the CCR?

Very impressive result. Hopefully they will be able to set up a viable sales and service network in North America.
