When I was in college, my roommate locked her keys in her Acura Integra and I ultimately ended up helping her fish them off her passenger seat with an unbent coat hanger. It turns out that this “oops” moment doesn’t just happen to college students – it also happens to owners of Koenigsegg CCR supercars.
Automotive blog Carscoops came across this video of said Koenigsegg owner fishing his keys out of his apparently locked car through a crack in the window — and, yes, that does seem to be a wire hanger he’s using. Lucky for him, he manages to retrieve the keys and is able to treat those who’ve stuck around until the end of the video to the aural delights of the CCR starting up and revving its engine. In case you’ve forgotten, that sound comes from be a supercharged 4.7-liter V-8 good for 806 hp and 678 lb-ft of torque, which sends its power to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission. That powertrain propels the bright-orange Koenigsegg from 0-62 mph in just 3.2 seconds, through the standing quarter mile in 9.0 seconds at 146 mph, and onto a top speed of over 242 mph. In fact, the CCR held the title of world’s fastest production car from when it came out in 2004 until the Bugatti Veyron topped in the following year.
Check out the video below of the Koenigsegg owner fishing for his keys, and enjoy the sonorous exhaust sounds of the V-8.
