    Koenigsegg CCX

    Quote Originally Posted by SuperCarFreak.net
    February 9, 2006 Less than twelve months ago, the Koenigsegg CCR was the most powerful and fastest production car in the world, having just achieved a top speed of 388 kmh (Caution: large WMV movie) , raising McLaren's mark of 372 kmh set in 1993 by a whopping margin.

    Prior to the CCR, the company’s CC8 was the world’s most powerful production car and the Swedish company has a proud history of creating brutally powerful roadsters. Then Bugatti finally put the long-awaited Veyron into production in October last, and it immediately became the world’s fastest (407 km/h), most powerful (987 bhp), most torquey (1,250 Nm at 2,200 rpm) and most outrageous (16-cylinder engine with four turbochargers and that’s just for starters) production automobile in automotive history.

    But like the Viking warriors from which they descended, the folks at Koenigsegg haven’t conceded just yet and the company sent us this image and a quaint invitation to the launch of a new car at the 76th Salon International de l´Auto in Geneva. Be afraid … be very afraid.

    It’s caused a stir around here. What will Bugatti do, with all the might of the Volkswagen empire behind it, should Koenigsegg manage to usurp the crown it has regarded as its rightful inheritance. Watch this space.

    Is it me or did they do something very similar with the CCR and in the end, it ended up looking practically identically to the CC8?

    If it doesn't matter, why do they put a veil on the front of the car?

    Probably less cosmetic changes and more performance.

    I'm very excited about this one. All current Koenigseggs look better than the Veyron, let's hope this one will be better looking AND faster

    Then whats up with the veil? I'm all for surprises, but its only a surprise if its different. From what I can see, the rear is identical and the general shape is identical. Its like asking for a bag of chocolate and getting doggy chocolates.

    "(Caution: large WMV movie)"

    Does anyone have that movie...I'd really like to see it.

    This car looks very intereseting and promising but I really doubt it will be more powerful and faster than the Bugatti. It looks somewhat re-designed at the rear and also...the roof line looks a little bit different than the CCR. Can't wait.
