The CC850 is powered by a twin-turbocharged 5.0-liter V-8, which is likely closely related to the same engine found in the Jesko.
It has 1185 horsepower, which goes up to an even more ridiculous 1385 horsepower when you fill the tank with E85.
Koenigsegg says the car weighs 1385 kilogrammes, which is about 3053 pounds. This is the same as what they said about the
2014 Koenigsegg One:1. The V-8 also makes 1020 pound-feet of torque. The Swedish automaker didn't say how fast the CC850 is, but it should be fast enough.
Koenigsegg CC850 KOENIGSEGG The new Engage Shift System (ESS), which is based on the Light Speed Transmission (LST) from the Jesko, is the CC850's main
selling point. The ESS is a multi-clutch nine-speed automatic that can switch gears very quickly, just like the LST. But unlike the
Jesko's LST, the CC850's ESS has a clutch pedal next to the brake and a gated shifter, so the driver can use it like a traditional six-
speed manual transmission. The manual shifter doesn't change gears mechanically. Instead, it changes gears completely by
wire. This lets the ESS change the gear ratios depending on the driving mode. Koenigsegg says this is the first manual gearbox
that can change its gear ratios, but it's not clear if this gearbox is really a manual
