Final stages of #031? #033? or even #034? June 18, 2006?

I would almost say 30?? There's not even any badging on the side yet. My guess would be that this is the first CCX.

99% sure this is #031





..wich means this is most likely #030.



I think, just like Matt that #031, might actually be original CCX prototype.

Okay then, my mind is officially blown! Never noticed this before. So then has #031 always been this color? Notice the masking tape they typically use to protect the edges on newly painted cars.

Unfortunately this means I have a bunch of photos earmarked as "031" which are actually of 030. I have a set out in front of the factory where #030 has no wing at all.

This would make sense, since #031 carries a CCR-style VIN, with an indicated 2005 build date.

Seems like it! My guess is that #031 was also the prototype for the CCXR, question is however, what has it been doing between 2006-2012?
Seeing as prototypes usually gets crushed or destroyed, #031 might have been put away for all those years instead of getting that fate? #031 as a prototype and #030 as a proto/demo car?

Edit: Also noticed the placement of the nozzles, wich is different from every other CCX/CCXR, + the damaged front spoiler.





...However, #030 doesn't/didn't even have nozzles! At least not visible ones

Great to see this discussion, and some good observations! Glad to see others are heading the same way as me. I've always had doubt about the Jeffery Richt pictures.. the sneaky thing is the wheels, they are likely a photoshop from another car (non Koenigsegg) with that kind of dymags (+ callipers and steel discs never sen on a CCX before or later). But that was also what made me think this was another car (not #030). Skilled job by Richt. He set me up, until I found this picture ..

Found some articles claiming co-founder/CEO of nVidia Taiwanese-American Jen-Hsun Huang is (or was in 2009) the owner of a Black CCX!

Mercury News interview: Jen-Hsun Huang, co-founder of Nvidia - San Jose Mercury News
A racier side to Nvidia CEO Huang

Who are the candidates?
There is no (Black) Taiwanese/Chinese CCX.
Jen-Hsun Huang seems to be connected to Stanford, CA? nVidia HQ in Santa Clara (San Jose), CA. We are looking for a Californian car?

#041 sold to "RM"?
#044 sold to "DB"?
#046?
#048 hot candidate?
#062 CCXR sold to AF?
