Just two units of Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita has been built so far
The original plan was to build 3 units – which is enough to keep it exclusive, but it is too difficult and time-consuming for Koenigsegg to produce the white carbon fibre, so they were able to make only 2 units of the CCXR Trevita eventually. One of the only two owners is reportedly legendary boxer Floyd Mayweather.
