Expert Auto Appraisals performed an inspection on this 2008 Koenigsegg CCX. I performed the inspection in Beverly Hills, California. I first saw this car in Miami and found it to be the same after the assignment to inspect this car. The car was a very nice car with a few oddities from production quirks and age. The car showed very well. Koenigsegg produced a true supercar with all bases covered. The engine compartment is gorgeous. I will say that the car was a handful in LA traffic, but a unique experience.
The car was consigned to the RM Sothebys auction this August in Monterey. RM Sotheby’s sold the car on the auction block for $1,215,000 including buyers premium. I feel that was an expected result.
The Koenigsegg CCX is an incredible supercar. The chassis is carbon fiber reinforced with kevlar and aluminum. Koenigsegg designed the engine in house, a twin turbo 4.7L V8 producing over 800 HP and able to be run on 91 octane fuel. Another interesting fact, the carbon fiber wheels were the first of their type. A CIMA 6 Speed gearbox transferred power. Given that, the CCX is able to reach a top speed in excess of 245 mph with a 0-124 mph in 9.0 seconds. Koenigsegg produced only 30 CCX’s as well as a small mix of special editions, 49 in total.
Expert Auto Appraisals perform inspections on Koenigsegg and all other marques in Florida and throughout the United States and Canada. I attend the auctions in Scottsdale, Monterey, and Amelia every year. Because of this, I am available for inspections at RM Sotheby’s, Gooding & Co., and Bonhams. I also regularly attend Mecum, Russo and Steele, Barrett-Jackson, and GAA auctions.
