4 Things You Should Know About The 2010 Koenigsegg Trevita

If you are familiar with the Koenigsegg CCXR Edition, you can imagine how the 2010 Koenigsegg Trevita would look like. It looks like a limited edition of the CCXR Edition, which in Swedish means “three whites,” a reference to the model’s rare exterior features.

There are loads of supercars out in the market but perhaps, none can equal the looks of the Trevita.

1. Exterior

The car’s exterior makes it special and unique; a cut above from the rest of the supercars out there. Koenigsegg has a term for what makes its exterior shine—Shimmering Diamond Weave. The company said that when the sunlight hit the car’s exterior, “it sparkles as if millions of tiny white diamonds are infused inside the visible carbon fiber bodywork.”

The car features a targa bodystyle with a removable hardtop roof that can be stored in the trunk under the front hood. The doors are operated by what is called dihedral synchro-helix actuators and they open up smoothly.

2. Interior

The exterior of the Trevita might be “outlandish” to say the least, but the interior speaks very much of a two-seater road goer. It has the usual power windows, adjustable pedals, steering column, and seats, a rear parking sensor, dual airbags, climate control, leather upholstery, and tire pressure monitor.

The cargo space is very practical at 4.25 cubic feet, and the infotainment system is both practical and standard—touchscreen on the center console, an MP3 player, a satellite navigation, and a USB connection for mobile devices.

3. Drivetrain

The Trevita uses a rear-mid-engine RWD layout with a hand-built, aluminum 4.8-liter V-8 engine that can produce 1,018 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 796 pound-feet of torque at 5,600 rpm. It can go to 62 mph in mere 2.9 seconds from 0 mph while 0 to 124 mph takes 8.75 seconds. The top speed is at 254 mph.

4. Prices

At first, Koenigsegg wanted to produce at least three Trevita but the Shimmering Diamond Weave made this impossible. They were only able to produce two. The first one was sold to an unnamed man in Geneva while the second went to five-division world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. for a whopping $4.85 million.
