Koenigsegg CCXR

Koenigsegg-CCXR Few cars can make my jaw drop in awe like the Koenigsegg CCXR.  Koenigsegg makes some of the fastest, most exclusive supercars in the world.  The CCXR is different though… unique.. spectacular.  There are few cars indeed that can be mentioned in the same breath as the CCXR.  Alright, enough babbling – what in the world makes this car so special?  I’ll let the numbers speak for themselves:

Koenigsegg CCXR Specs

  • 1018 HP Twin-supercharged 4.7 liter V8
  • 0-62 MPH in 2.9 seconds
  • Top speed of 261 MPH ( unverified )
  • 1.3 G on the skidpad
  • Carbon fiber body
  • Runs on E85 Ethanol

Finally, a use for ethanol.  The CCXR is tuned to run on E85, and uses the higher octane of the biofuel to it’s benefit.  The amazing power output makes it the second most powerful production car in the entire history of the world – that’s impressive.  Only the SSC Ultimate Aero, with it’s 1183 HP engine, has it bested.

Koenigsegg will make a grand total of 6 CCXR’s, and you’ll have to put down some coin to earn the right to drive one.  What’s the damage?  How about a cool $2.33 million.  If it was any other car, I’d go off about how absurd that price is.  With the CCXR?  It’s a deal.Koenigsegg-CCXR-2 Koenigsegg-CCXR-3 Koenigsegg-CCXR-5 Koenigsegg-CCXR-4
