Eye Candy: Bare Carbon Koenigsegg CCX

Koenigsegg CCX Alain 0 600x397 at Eye Candy: Bare Carbon Koenigsegg CCX

When you put your heart and soul in designing a car, it just won’t age. The Koenigsegg CCX is ten years old now, but looking at you would think it has just been launched. That’s how timeless the design of this car is. That is doubly true in the case of this bare carbon version, on display at Alain Class showroom in Dubai.

Of course, it helps that most other Koenigsegg models that came after the CCX looked fairly similar to this model and that has stopped this one looking out of date. But still, many of the super cars from ten years ago look old-fashioned these days, but Koenigsegg CCX has maintained its vigor. Not only that, it looks cooler and more macho than almost all of today’s hyper cars, including its own grandchild, the Regera.
