Koenigsegg's previous model, the CCR holds the record for the fastest production car out there. Sounds pretty frozen to me...

I've got ten of these in my garage. Next to my Veyron. Also, frozen.

It just seems like a quick-fix answer to the Veyron, which isn't very cool. Now, the CCR was cool because it was like "Hey, we're going to make our awesome supercar...EVEN FASTER! JUST 'CUZ!" but the CCX is all like "plz do not compare me to the Veyron, plz plz plz" and so it fails at being cool. Also, the X in the name is just lame. X always fails at being cool because it's used by doofuses, like the people behind the XFL or anything labeled XTREME.

I would vote uncool because of all that but it's still awesome and swedish and ridiculously fast and has a name that's hard to pronounce for everyone but me. So, cool.

Fucking Freezing...you can never get tired of those doors :-)

Frozen on performance alone... looks better in person when you can inspect the perfect carbon weave, the lovely intricate and perfectly finished CNC machining and the furious engine note. What a monster biggrin.gif

CARBON FIBER WHEELS. Need I say more.

Frozen. A car like this really can't be anything else, unless it's poorly engineered and can't do anything but go quickly in a straight line...

A couple...

I love those doors.
Cyclone
Uncool.

The reason being is that I'm not nearly as excited about the CCX as I was the CC or even the CCR. Even if it is better and faster, its boring.

Yeah, I feel that way about it too. When the CCR was announced I was like GOD THAT'S AWESOME. But this is somehow just totally meh.

Even though the changes are slight, it's making an awesome car more awesome. Why does that mean it suddenly sucks?
PBB
^ Because the "more awesomeness" isn't very significant and completely not worthy of the hype. It's just attention whoring.

I voted Uncool for that reason.

Its still a hypercar done right. And it still weighs about a thousand pound less than a Veyron.
soarer
wouldent you be pissed off if you just bought a CCR?
bankE46
cars like this are just so great in their own sense, its almost like koenigsegg is a little nasa, creating some of the most clever, groundbreaking crafts that man has ever concieved of. cars like this are milestones of sorts in my mind, steps that man has taken in the development of his capabilities and aesthetic senses.

Sure, it'd suck. But if you were looking at there website, they've been whispering about it for some time.

Thats why I dont like it, because it belittles the CCR and the C8S which are still both massively fast.

how can it belittle them? i dont think the fastest car in the world is a massive difference over the 3rd fastest car in the world. tongue.gif whats the difference in the top speeds, like 6 or 7 mph or something? you'd never be able to even compare the two cars on anything except a massive test track, so for all intensive purposes, if you own a koenigsegg in the first place, you dont need to worry about other cars belittling you, even another koenigsegg.

That would be "intents and purposes", Mr. Capitalization. tongue.gif

Always loved the design of this car, it is one mean looking car.

What I find interesting is that their website offers english and russian as the language choices. Are there that many russians buying these things?

If you voted MJuncool just to spite then you are a fucking douchebag.

Absolutely Frozen! thumbs_up.gif

Is a serious and exclusive alternative to the Italian supercars.

The CCX is a friggin beast and like Smartdriver said a nice alternative to an Italian exoitc
ExoticTuner
Its a fabulous car. The shape is so interesting to look at, and a great example of form following function. Sounds awesome too
