CCGT

The Koenigsegg CCGT

GOING RACING

The CCGT came about as side project for Christian and the engineers at Koenigsegg. When Christian started to build and design the first CC prototype, racing was always part of the larger pictures. Hence Christian studied the ACO Le Mans regulation and made sure that his car would fit the regulation for one for the most interesting racing categories at the time – the GT1 Class.

The regulations stated that the car is not allowed to be wider than 2 meters and that the cockpit has to have at least 70% of the width of the car. So Christian designed the car to these exact measurements so that the road car would be a perfect basis for a GT1 car.

Design

The CCGT was a side project that was worked upon when time was available from the engineering and building of the production cars. Hence it took several years to finish the first prototype. It was based on a Koenigsegg CCR, but with some elements from the CCX model, like the front lamps and some other small items.

The end result was staggering, the car was super stiff, weighed under 1000 kg without ballast, had over 600 kg downforce and over 600 hp normally aspirated, racing restricted hp.

Legacy

The few people that have driven the CCGT state it handles like a dream and that it would have been very competitive

The reason why it never went racing? Two months after Koenigsegg started the first shake down runs of the first CCGT, the ACO and FIA changed regulations for the GT1 class. Carbon monocoques were no longer allowed and minimum production numbers went from a total of 20 cars over several years to 350 cars per year! Good night!

 

The CCGT is truly one of the rarest most exciting Koenigsegg cars ever made and the sound is just fantastic
