Koenigseggs first lap at the Nürburgring.

Koenigsegg had an outing at the Nordschleife at the Nürburgring for the first time the other week.

Without any prior setup or adjustment the Koenigsegg CCR managed to lap the ring in 7.39 Seconds.


This lap time show tremendous potential and is already class leading. The Koenigsegg Team will be back on the Ring within short for further trials.

The Koenigsegg CCR features customer adjustable, shock absorbers, wheel geometries, anti roll bars, ride-height and tire pressure. These adjustable features will be now be utilized, and an customer official "Ring" setting will be created. Hopefully, theses settings will help the CCR to become the first road legal, series-produced Super car under 7.30 Seconds.

Words from the founder:

-Last weeks laps around the Ring show that the Koenigsegg CCR is not only a world beater in a straight line, but also around the most challenging circuit in the world. I cannot wait to have another go.

More info will follow on this exciting challenge....

Wow, that's fantastic. I am always happy to hear about exotic cars that back up their appearance and prestige with performance like that. Much respect for this car!

Didn't the Carrera GT do it in 7.32? But I bet the CCR can get down to those times when it's finetuned for the Ring!
Certainly, with some more accurate adjustments it should squeeze another few seconds of from the 7.39.

Anyone have any idea how fast the Mclaren F1-LM did on the N-Ring? I have never read any N-Ring test of the F1-LM
