Boxing Champs Plaything

The 2010 Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita, one of only two ever built and the only one to US spec, has an equally illustrious owner, professional boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, who paid US$4.8 million for it.

It features a visible diamond weave carbon-fibre finish which literally sparkles like millions of fine diamonds when exposed to the sun’s light and contrasts superbly with the black and white leather interior.

That it was built in the first place symbolises Koenigsegg’s profound obsession to creating exceptional and highly desirable cars.

The name Trevita is a Swedish abbreviation that means three whites, and is used to describe the three cars that were to be made out of the striking diamond weave carbon fibre.

Until now carbon fibre was only available in black but Koenigsegg researchers and technicians developed a unique method of treating the fibres to give them their dazzling finish.

Initially Koenigsegg planned to build three CCXR Trevitas but, due to the complexity of the Diamond Weave production process, that number was reduced to two, making this car exceedingly rare.

Christian von Koenigsegg has been manufacturing his sought-after handmade Supercars since 2002 from an ex air force base in Ängelholm, Sweden.

Like all Koenigsegg’s the CCXR Trevita features a carbon-fibre chassis and body with a detachable hardtop and signature doors that swing up and out, an aluminum honeycomb reinforcements; mid-mounted 4.8-litre 810 horsepower twin supercharged engine and paddle-shift autobox, independent suspension and massive eight-piston Brembo disc brakes.

Top speed was described as ‘in excess of 250mph’ (402km/h), so it can outrun almost anything on four wheels plus most light aircraft and non-military helicopters.

The extraordinary car has travelled a mere 1,947 miles in Mayweather’s hands and is part of the Ash Crest Collection.
