What's it like driving a supercar with over 800 horsepower that can accelerate to sixty in slightly over three seconds? I don't know, you'll have to ask Autoblogger Frank Filipponio who did just that at the official U.S. unveiling of the Koenigsegg CCX. Only one car was on hand to attack the track with and it was the exact same CCX that the Stig flogged on Top Gear to a record lap time, complete with the rear wing that was added for extra stability by Koenigsegg. Special thanks goes out to Drew Phillips from Fast-Autos.net who served as our impromptu driver for the video shoot and our brethren over at Netscape for producing the video.

      That was total crap. Hope you got paid or something.

      Ditto #15. That was lame.

      So, what's with the lousy camera work and even worse music? I want hear that supercharged V8 roar, not some crummy music!

      You get a chance to drive the CCX and all you filmed was THAT?! How about a shot of the car turning corners on the track? Or a standing start tire smoking acceleration run? Instead, you decide to mix it with bad music and turn it into a "youtube" video. And this was after having acknowledged that this was the Top Gear CCX - so someone already made a good video of the car for you to start with!

      That was pretty underwhelming. And yes, the soundtrack was atrocious. Unless you're 12 and undiscerning.

      Ditto here.

      WTF? Was that supposed to be a really bas music video or something? Why do we want to hear that awful song instead of the awesome music coming from the CCX itself? And no acceleration runs?

      Weak sauce.

      I echo the sentiments of all of you about the video quality, but hasten to add that this was a last-minute opportunity to drive the car, not an arranged photo shoot/full road test. And the crew consisted of one overwhelmed blogger and Drew from Fast-Autos.net using a borrowed video camera for the first time.

      Very weak guys... Didn't even showcase the car!

      What no dropping of the hammer? I wanted to hear that car growl! And since the stig already spun it into the grass, I expected some hard driving on the car. Although it appears someone already tweaked the passenger side door.
