Filed under: KOENIGSEGG Car News | KOENIGSEGG Headlines
The Infotainment system is modular and can be upgraded over time, with new exciting features as we envision them. It is a great platform for us to make the CCX even more communicative. For example, it will be possible for drivers to record lap times, power levels and G-forces. On the CCXR model it will be possible to read ethanol mixture and how much this effects the power level.

The ATM Paddelshift system features a completely new gearbox design, which has been developed for the CCX. The gearbox is engineered to take up to 1100 nm of torque and due to its transversal layout, it is about 30 cm shorter then the manual transaxle gearbox it replaces, which improves weight distribution. The gearbox features a revolutionary synchronization system that allows shift times of 30 milliseconds - a great improvement, compared to existing synchromesh system. Basically it is as fast as a dual clutch transmission, but reduced in size and weight '“ two important factors in a Supercar.

The gearbox also include an electronic differential control. The E-diff, makes the car easier to drive on the limit of performance, and thereby enhances the experience to most drivers. The gearbox is controlled with ergonomic paddles mounted on the steering wheel. Koenigsegg believes this to be the most optimal solution, as the paddles follow the steering wheel movements at all times.

An increasing number of Koenigsegg customers wish to make their car a "one of special". Usually this means bespoke interior trimming, exterior colors and carbon areas, special wings, wheels and stereo systems or track biased chassis setting including race harnesses and so on.

In order to handle these specifc needs in an organized way, Koenigsegg has set up a program called Custom Vision. This program enables our customer to fulfll their wildest dreams through a production and development system that Koenigsegg has optimized over the years. For example Koenigsegg have two engineers on fulltime aleart ready to tackle any new and exiting challenge coming from our customer and to take these ideas through to production.

Each program is personally supervised by Chrisitan von Koenigsegg, that personally helps put the fnal touches to the features in accordance with the esteemed customers visions.
