Swedish supercar-maker Koenigsegg has opened the second chapter in its quest to make the fastest production car in the world: the 806bhp CCR.

Based on the standard CC8 S, the CCR adds a Lysholm twin-screw supercharger and a titanium exhaust for an extra 150bhp and a torque total of 678lb ft.

It’s enough for 0-62mph in a claimed 3.2sec – three-tenths faster – and a top speed of 242mph. The car costs £307,000 at current exchange rates; UK importer Modena Cars says deliveries will start before the end of the year.
