Press Release) CCX Updates for 2007
A new and revolutionary instrument cluster with intuitive display of
all important information. The New Koenigsegg Chronograph Direct
Focus Instrument Cluster - envisioned by Christian v. Koenigsegg &
engineered in-house by the Koenigsegg Engineering Team.
* New Revolutionary Design - Patent Pending
* One single focus to read the most critical data; RPM, Oil
pressure, Speed and Boost
* No need to re-focus. The driver’s eyes can be back on the road at
least 50% faster compared to traditional dials or LCD readouts,
without the utilization of the sometimes disturbing pop- up
* The main instrument can help visualize the gear ratios and the
influence of boost pressure on the RPM advance, as well as velocity
and oil pressure
The most intriguing feature of the new instrument cluster is the
Patent Pending tri-axial 3D three pointer layout. With this layout
the relations between the velocity, engine speed and boost pressure
become instantly clear in an unprecedented fashion. The driver can
easily pick up on gear ratios and boost pressure enhanced
acceleration through the gears.
As the driver become accustomed to this new concept, he will find
that during spirited driving there is no need to look at the actual
numbers on the dials, but at the relationship and angles between the
needles and how they interact with each other, since they all pivot
from the same point, similarly to a traditional timepiece. Due to
this the driver can re-direct focus from the instrumentation to the
road ahead at least 50% faster compared to traditional systems.
Furthermore, this is the first instrumentation in a road car that
can actually describe the gear ratios in a comprehendible fashion.
The instrument cluster displays a large amount of understandable
information in a small area without the need for menus or the flicking of buttons. The dials use a non-reflective high contrast
surface with innovative illumination and fluorescent style needles,
a combination often found in aircraft, again for maximum clarity.
With the logical grouping of information in the central cluster, the
driver will fi nd fast moving, primary inter-related data in a fixed pattern. The left satellite shows the slow moving needles, such
as temperatures and fluid levels.
In the right satellite, the driver finds the distance traveled and
a vital and clearly stated fuel pressure dial in solitude.
The warning lights are located in related groups and are only
visible when activated, as they otherwise are hidden behind aluminum
tinting that matches the billet machined anodized instrument
The design is pure and clean Scandinavian, based on the now famous
Koenigsegg circular interior features in combination with exclusive
New bespoke billet aluminum uprights, offering reduced un-sprung
weight and increased stiffness.
Traction control is now standard and works extremely well even in
the snow or very wet conditions with it’s high performance settings.
Aluminum door hinges have been implemented for further weight
A new ICE-Pod system. Integrated In Car Entertainment Ipod® system.
Through the one cable connector to the car, the I-pod is also hooked
up to a radio antenna in the car and fully controls RDS radio
function directly from the I-Pod. Even though there is only one
cable going to the I-pod, it is also being charged by the car at all
No normal car stereo functions are missing even considering the very
compact format of the I-pod.
Basically there is no need for any other control unit in the car,
all functions are directly controlled through the I-pod.
Koenigsegg believes this new way of utilizing the I-pod, will make
normal car stereo head units obsolete in most application.
By combining the latest Ipod® technology with a state of the art
lightweight carbon fibre trimmed amplifier built by Genesis in
England, Koenigsegg has taken the next step in Supercar ICE system
design. A side from the improved functionality and significant
weight savings, there is also a practical glove-box installed where
the traditional unit used to reside and the interior is now even
cleaner and more elegant looking.
