Koenigsegg is known for building rare and exotic supercars, but the new Trevita certainly tops their list. Only three will be built, in a stunning translucent white carbon fiber finish exclusive to Koeniggsegg. They’ll have over 1,000 horsepower, yet weigh half as much as a Bugatti Veyron. How many other cars have you seen that use a double syncho-helix door opening mechanism?
Christian von Koeniggsegg gives a fairly detailed overview of his latest creation for the first 13:00 of the video, then Jay takes it out for a test drive. Since he’s in L.A., there’s more time spent in traffic than in determining if the Trevita CCXR is really faster than a Veyron (which,sadly, is never determined). Still, the fact that you can drive a car like the Trevita CCXR in bumper to bumper traffic on a hot day speaks volumes about Koenigsegg’s build quality and their attention to detail in design. Once I finally crank out that bestseller, I can definitely make room in my garage for one.
