It was unveiled on 19 August 2022 at Pebble Beach, California, as a homage to the CC8S, and was originally limited to 50 units to celebrate the company’s founder Christian von Koenigsegg’s 50th birthday. However, due to increased demand, it was announced that an additional 20 units would be built, making it a highly sought-after and exclusive vehicle.

Technical Marvels

The CC850 is one of a few select megacars to boast a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio, weighing just 1,385kg and producing 1,385hp from its twin-turbo V8 powertrain. This offers the driver a potent mix of pure power and incredible vehicle dynamics. The car feels nimble and agile in the corners, with world-class acceleration and straight-line speed. It features the award-winning Engage Shift System (ESS), providing both a gated 6-speed manual and a 9-speed automatic transmission, engineered to enhance the driving experience.

The top speed of the Koenigsegg CC850 has not been officially announced by the manufacturer. However, it is known that the CC850 has a power output of 1,185 hp (1,201 PS; 884 kW) on regular fuel or 1,385 hp (1,404 PS; 1,033 kW) on E85, with a peak torque of 1,385 N⋅m (1,022 lb⋅ft) at 4,800 rpm. It is based on the Koenigsegg Jesko and shares the same multilink front and rear suspension, which consists of double wishbones, hydraulic and gas-hydraulic shock absorbers, with Triplex dampers at the rear. The CC850 also has a feature called the Engage Shifter System, which allows the driver to simulate six gears of manual shifting with a physical clutch pedal as opposed to paddle shifters. Christian von Koenigsegg claims that with this feature the CC850 “must be the fastest manual car around a racetrack I can think of”. However, the top speed of the CC850 has not been officially announced and it is not clear if it will be faster or slower than the Jesko Absolute, which has a theoretical top speed of 330 mph.

Exclusive and Highly Sought-After

The CC850 quickly became a highly desirable vehicle, with all 50 initial examples being sold out. Due to the overwhelming demand, an additional 20 units were announced, further cementing its status as a remarkable and sought-after car. The limited production and groundbreaking features make the CC850 a milestone in Koenigsegg’s history and a remarkable celebration of the company’s achievements.
