OVERVIEW

Premiered at the Paris Auto Show in 2000, the CC8S was Koenigsegg's first production car, with just six models produced between 2002 and 2003. The CC8S was a culmination of eight years of development and laid the foundation for all Koenigsegg vehicles when it comes to aesthetics, philosophy and functionality.
