Koenigsegg is a true deserving supercar designed for one thing and one thing only - performance. I only wish all the superlatives adorned on the Veyron were appliciable to the Koenigsegg: fastest. best acceleration, most HP.

The CCGT is a fantastic race car. What is the story with the CCXR?

What's with the orange one?

Very awesome though one thing. Koenigsegg needs some better media shots. These look like bad photoshops.

The orange one is the 2007 Koenigsegg CCX, more information about that found here.

that is a damn fine looking Gt racer. hope it does well for them as i've long been a supporter of koenigsegg. lets hope that they can do well and show the big boys that the smaller brands can still make a name for themsleves in racing.

great.....

looks great, but I don't think it will have enough downforce, just look at almost every racing car being build today, they have so much spoilers and lips, just to give it enough downforce, although a mercedes-clkgtr-lemans-backflip would be funny

You can't tell how much downforce is generated simply by looking at it.

If the basic shape of the Koenigsegg is low drag/low lift, then it does not the raft of additional spoilers that some cars have.

It was the Mercedes CLR that "flipped" by the way, and it wasn't the only one.

The Porsche 911 GT1 also flipped, and a number of other cars came very close.

People always point to the CLR, because it was the most publicised, but in reality it was a generic flaw in the aerodynamic concept being applied at the time.

I can - looks like that's about 200 N of downforce at 200km/h...

Do you mean the spring loaded fuel filler caps (with ATL - a fuel tank makers name on them) on the side behind the driver and under the names?
