Koenigsegg has built a new car that looks like its oldest one. Welcome to the CC850: a 1,385hp hypercar with a very complicated manual/automatic gearbox, all clothed in the timeless design of Koenigsegg’s first ever production car. That’s the CC8S, providing ample proof of its ageless design concept because it looks just as fresh today as it did back in 2002. This new car celebrates 20 years since it first took flight, as well as the boss' 50th birthday. The CC850 achieves a 1:1 power to weight ratio with 1385hp (on E85) and a 1385 kg kerb weight. Oh, and did we forget to mention the perfect 1385 Nm 🤍 4800rpm for a full house? Join Top Gear magazine's Jack Rix and Christian von Koenigsegg for a guided tour around number 1 of 70 under the roof of the company's new factory.

Happy birthday Christian 🇸🇪🍺
Mr. Christian.. you are a wizzard.. bravo 🔥🙌🏼
The only super car I would buy. The creator is here with us, passion about it, proper build... Forget lambos, Ferraris...
Christian is the man. Coolest car guy ever. I want to see him and Chris Harris chum it up.
Top gear dude simping
Build a CC850 for the everyday person, same shape much much cheaper, max 400 hp, little tech, more mechanical feel .
This is what happens if a car nerd (while being an engineering genius) builds a car. Pure invention
I love an all black car- but this silver paint is PERFECT for this car and shouldn’t ever be changed. Looks like a transformers concept car but it’s REAL 🎉
Not the hard hats
from vikings to p***s in just a few hundred years , safety safety , wear those facemasks slaves
What Christian has accomplished at 50 in the automotive world is nothing short of impressive. What a dream life this man has been living. And he has a great personality, too. Kudos to Mr Koenigsegg!
Every single one.....and there ain't many......are hand 🖐 made, from patented this and that right down to patented weeve of carbon fiber. They are a work of art. And the main head workshop ain't that big at all
Fantastic Alfa Romeo????????????????????????????
My favorite shape ever, with an unfortunate price tag.
Pagani, Rimac, and this guy are the inspiration in its purest form. Creating so much innovation and, at the same time, beating up the big guys on track & setting new records - heads off to such petrolheads.
man, the CC850 shown that some designs like it can be ahead of its time so well, the Bugatti Veyron design suddenly aged like milk lol, until the striking beautiful Chiron
