The Koenigsegg CCX is a mid-engined sports car built by Koenigsegg Automotive AB. The project began with the aim of making a global car, designed and engineered to comply with global safety and environment regulations, particularly to enter the United States car market. To sell cars in the US many alterations were made to the design of the CCR; the previously used Ford Modular engine was replaced by an in-house developed Koenigsegg engine designed to run on 91 octane fuel, readily available in the United States, and to meet the Californian emission standards.

The name CCX is an abbreviation for Competition Coupé X, the X commemorating the 10th anniversary of the completion and test drive of the first CC vehicle in 1996. The car rocks a 4.7 L (287 cu in) Twin supercharged DOHC V8 capable of 806 PS (593 kW) at 7000 rpm, 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2s and a top speed over 395 km/h (245 mph).
