Koenigsegg CCR EVO 817 tuned by edo Competition

Always looking for ways to refine and optimize, the team from Edo Competition Motorsport GmbH appears to be one of the most appreciated names in the business of high quality modifications for supercars. The owner of a Koenigsegg was interested in improving the appearance and drivability of the car and, thus, he tasked Edo Competition to make it real. The engineers' main focus was on the setup of the two Rotrex units hence the V8 engine was force-fed by twin superchargers, modifying the drive ratio, which makes the engine hit its peak torque earlier, and remapping the ECU in order to accommodate the hardware changes. The power output was increased without compromising the broad torque curve over the whole rev range, while the engine redline was lowered to 7,200 rpm, aiming o ensure long term reliability of the superchargers. Disassembling the six-speed gearbox entirely, the engineers replaced the plastic bushings with Uniball units, resulting in boost pressure from 3,700 rpm all the way up to 6,000 rpm, durable brakes as well as a finely tuned directional stability beyond 300 km/h. Acceleration and drivability were significantly improved by the top speed which was slightly reduced from 390 km/h. The design of the vehicle's interior and exterior received a number of changes that include an updated front featuring auxiliary lights, Alcantara material together with a redesigned centre console accommodating a new infotainment system. The display was integrated into the dashboard and the driver is informed about tire pressures and temperature through a TPM system, for safety reasons. Without watering down the car's unique character, Edo Competition has done a great job in upgrading the rare exotic with fine details.
