In order to compete in the FIA GT Championship Koenigsegg created the CCGT race car, based on the production CC model range; making its debut appearance at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show and build to comply with in the ACO and FIA regulations for the GT1 class.
The CCGT engine is based on the Koenigsegg CCX production engine with the superchargers removed and its capacity increased to 5.0 L to compensate for the loss of power. Due to the already lightweight construction of the road-going model it was based on, the weight was easily reduced under the minimum 1,100 kg (2,425 lb), which means that the Ballast can be placed optimally in order to meet the mandatory weight.
As the car was just being finished the FIA GT1 regulations were changed so that there had to be a minimum of 350 road cars produced per year of the model that was to compete, something that Koenigsegg was unable to achieve, prohibiting the CCGT from racing.
