Swedish automakers aren’t normally associated with 240+mph supercars, but Koenigsegg is changing that with its CCX. Any machine that with a power-to-weight ratio of 3.5 pounds per horsepower is something to be reckoned with. That comes courtesy of a 4.7L twin-turbo V-8 making 806hp. Nominally based on Ford’s Modular V-8 Architecture (Mustang), in reality the engine is a purpose-built piece with block and head castings unique to the CCX. Whereever it came from, it works — the CCX can achieve more than 245mph — flirting with the record the Bugatti Veyron holds for the world’s fastest production car.
AUTOart pays tribute to this Swedish scorcher with a bright orange 1:18 replica.
