Building on Koenigsegg’s CCX, the CCXR was once awarded ‘One of the 10 Most Beautiful Cars in History’ by Forbes Magazine. Building on the success of the beautiful CCXR in 2009, Koenigsegg commissioned an extremely limited run of the Trevita.
So why are we featuring a car produced in 2009 we hear you ask? The Trevita has been making headlines recently, since world champion boxer Floyd Mayweather announced on Instagram that his just purchased one for $4.8 million USD.
With that in mind, we think now is the perfect opportunity to take a closer look at the ultra rare model. ‘Trevita’ is a Swedish abbreviation that translates into “three whites”. Around the globe, Koenigseggs visible carbon weave bodywork has been renowned for its uniqueness and perfection.
Prior to the Trevita, car manufacturers only had access to traditional black carbon fibres. Koenigsegg developed a unique coated fiber solution for the Trevita program that transformed the fibers from black to a sparkling, silvery white. When sunlight hits the Trevita, it sparkles as if millions of tiny white diamonds are infused inside the visible carbon fiber bodywork.
Additionally, the Trevita features a unique double carbon rear wing, inconell exhaust system, carbon ceramic brakes with ABS, airbags, paddle-shift, chrono instrument cluster, infotainment system, tire monitoring system and a hydraulic lifting system.
The 4.8L V8 pumps out 1018hp (759kW) and makes the Trevita capable of a 0 – 100 km/h sprint time of 2.9 seconds. Top speed is 410km/h as you progress through the transversal paddle-shift gearbox.
Being limited to only three examples, the Trevita was a truly exclusive offering from Koenigsegg and no doubt the reason that Floyd Mayweather has just purchased one.
