When it comes to rarity and uniqueness, few things can match the Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita, a car so rare, only two in the world exist.
Floyd Mayweather, the heavyweight boxing champion, who earns more than $300 million per year, is a proud owner of one of those beauties. According to the Koenigsegg factory, the initial plan was to build three Trevitas, but the company stopped at two.
The Trevita is no ordinary car; even “super-car” is a weak word for what this beauty can do. The best term to describe the $6.7 million beauty is “hyper-car”. Mayweather or “Money Man” as people like to call him, took to Instagram to announce his latest addition.
So what is so special about the Trevita? For starters, the hyper-car sparkles in the sunlight that you get the feeling that millions of white diamonds are infused into the body of the vehicle. The effect called “diamond on wheels” is achieved by using white carbon fibre for the whole body of the car.
The name of the car, Trevita, is a Swedish word for “three whites”. The first hyper-car model was produced in 2009. The carbon fiber weave of the Trevita remains visible to the eye and it is not something that many people are accustomed to. However, Koenigsegg is a factory that stands for uniqueness and the Swedish company frequently uses a clear-carbon look for its models.
The Trevita is covered by tint, not paint, which looks like diamonds are shining when the car is under the sunlight. The technique was developed especially for the Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita.
Let’s talk about the chassis of the Trevita, which is made with carbon fiber with a body built in aluminum that results in an optimal weight distribution. The Swedish company adds both front and rear suspensions for better safety, including VPS gas-hydraulic absorbers for shock. The height of the car can be electronically adjusted, depending on the driving conditions.
The Trevita is powered by a 4.8-liter V8 engine producing 1,018hp with twin superchargers and specially developed gearbox. Such a powerful car can sprint from 0 to 60mph in just 2.9 seconds, making it one of the fastest cars in the world. If you like to get to 120mph, you will need 8.75 seconds and in order to get from 0 to 120mph and back to 0, the car needs just 13.55 seconds. The speed of the CCXR Trevita is limited to 254mph.
The sporty exterior of the Koenigsegg XXCR Trevita is enriched by 19 inch wheels on the front, and 20 inch wheels on the rear.
Driving such a beast as the Trevita requires excellent braking system in order to make it safe and secure and the Trevita achieves that with the help of carbon ceramic brakes with ABS, digital warning system, power brakes, power steering and many more technological goodies. And when it comes to technology, the Trevita has adjustable pedals, adjustable seats, hydraulic lifting system, MP3 player, climate control, USB connection, power steering and power brakes, G sensor, tire monitoring system, digital info system and much more.
