1018 hp Koenigsegg CCXR Special Edition Rpmgo.com

Earlier this year, Swedish supercar maker Koenigsegg announced that it will produce an environmental-friendly supercar, and when they say supercar, they mean it. The Koenigsegg CCXR Special Edition will be powered by a 4.7 liter turbocharged V8 engine, running on E85 biofuel, which develops a whooping 1,018 hp at 7,200 rpm and 1,060 Nm of torque at 6,100 rpm.

And, as expected, its performance numbers are also incredible: 0 to 60 mph (100 km/h) in 2.9 seconds and a top speed over 250 mph (400 km/h), while its fuel consumption will be 22l/100km or 10.7 mpg. Priced at 1.5 million Euro (that’s $2.2 million) the Koenigsegg CCXR is quite a lot more expensive than the more stylish Bugatti Veyron, which currently is the best serial production supercar out there and, to be honest, I never digged these racecar-type supercars, so I would definitely go for the Veyron. Fortunately, I don’t have to make this choice (yet!). What do you think? Would you go for the Koenigsegg? Leave your opinion here.
