Here's How The Un-insured Koenigsegg Bit Dust In Mexico

Written By:

An ultra-rare Koenigsegg CCX has been totalled in Mexico yesterday, but, before we get down to the whole story, we've to warn you that its details might sound like it's from a James Bond movie.

The Koenigsegg CCX Custom Vision which enthusiasts knows by the chassis number #67, had recently arrived in Mexico from Texas. The multi-million dollar supercar was heading towards Monterey at the time of the accident.

As reports suggest, the Koenigsegg was speeding heavily when the driver lost control and hit a curb, causing the CCX to flip multiple times. It is a known fact that many street racers cross the border to Mexico for street races, as the legal actions against speeding or racing are much less severe in Mexico.

The two men inside the vehicle have survived the impacts, and were moved to the hospital immediately, but their condition is still unknown. The carbon fiber monocoque has done its job well, remaining intact despite the high-speed crash. The rest of the car has been shattered into bits. The car has even lost two wheels from the impact.

The Koenigsegg CCX, which was up for sale earlier this year, with a $1.35 million price tag, was reportedly uninsured when the crash occurred and it was running on Mexico plates.

While it's still unknown how the Koenigsegg can be restored, we're still here wondering how the passengers made it out alive from such a nasty crash.
