It’s not easy improving on perfection, but if there’s a tuning company that is capable of doing it, that’s Edo Competition. The latest supercar to arrive in the hands of German tuning house is the Koenigsegg CCR Evolution, a model which already packs impressive amounts of power as standard.
Already one of the fastest cars on the road, the Koenigsegg CCR got 816 horsepower and can top out at around 245 miles per hour. What more could you want? Well, that was before the new Agera came out. Now the previous-generation Koenigsegg suddenly seems a little outdated. So the UK’s Evo magazine brought its CCR to the folks at Edo Competition for a little… enhancement. Before you go on reading the details, let us tell you the upgrade program comes with a €40,000 ($56,800) price tag.
Edo’s process with the CCR began with a modified ECU to boost power and a modified drive ratio to allow the vehicle to hit its torque peak earlier. The result is a total of 891 hp, up from the standard 806 hp, and a reduction in the redline to 7,200 rpm. The six speed gearbox was disassembled in its entirety and the plastic bushings were replaced with Uniball units. All of the work to the engine allows the CCR Evolution to get to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds, to 124 mph in 9.7 seconds, and to 186 mph in 23 seconds.
Edo has also fitted the The Koenigsegg CCR Evolution with better brakes, and fine tuned the car’s directional stability beyond 186 mph, and in order to improve acceleration and drivability, the top speed was slightly reduced from 242 mph.
Visual highlights include auxiliary front lights, and enhanced wheels with a coat of charcoal paint. The tuners have also focused on the interior of the Koenigsegg CCR Evolution as well, using Alcantara material throughout the cabin, redesigning the center console that now accommodates a new infotainment system including a reversing camera as well as a custom-made pouch for the immobilizer remote, while the display was integrated into the dashboard.
