The Koenigsegg we forgot about: The CC Prototype
When you hear the name Koenigsegg, you hear words like "One:1" and "Regera". These are words, although maybe not completely understood, that send shivers down spines whenever uttered. Not CC Prototype though.
In 1994, a young Christian Von Koenigsegg decided to build a car. He wanted something that was inspired by the Ferrari F40 and McLaren F1. A perfect storm when conjured correctly. So along with his team, built the CC Prototype. It had really good handling, and a really good chassis, and even had a 4.2 L Audi V8. It also had scissor doors, which were very rare at the time, so Koenigsegg was already above the F40 and F1 from that point. A top speed was never established, but with these stats, I'm sure it was within 200mph!
Although there were a few proportion issues, this was just a test car, and never meant to be sold as it was.

Koenigsegg was really proud of their first attempt at a car, and so they took it to the big boys, Audi, for a possible production idea. They turned it down, leaving the CC with no production engine, meaning it never made production. It still looks amazing even in 2019, with cars such as the Jesko and Agera RS leading Koenigsegg's lineup - who knows where the Swedish car maker will take us next?!
