Let A 16-Year-Old Show You How To Start Up The Koenigsegg CCX

Supercar

Some kids have all the luck.

Some kids just have all the luck. Case in point: CarBuzz reader Tom Daly. Daly was at SuperVettura, a London supercar dealership, when a salesman asked if he wanted to climb inside of a Koenigsegg CCX and fire it up. Daly was there with his father picking up a Ferrari so it’s not like the dealership just plucked a random gearhead off the street to make his day. Still, it was a damn cool move and makes for an interesting video. The CCX came out 10 years ago but is still plenty impressive with its supercharged 4.7-liter V8 making 800 hp and 679 lb-ft of torque.

What’s more is that it was offered with a six-speed manual. Check out this video yourself to see just how complex it is to start the CCX. Let’s just say it’s not as simple as pushing a button.
